comment What should you do if you are bitten by a rattlesnake?
The answer is the same for pit vipers, which include rattlesnakes, copperheads, and water moccasins. Bites from these snakes are usually not fatal even without medical attention, and in most (or many?) cases they don't use antivenin because the side effects might be worse than a minor snakebite. Also, sometimes pit vipers bite without injecting much or any venom. (This leads to some invalid claims of being immune to snakebites.)

comment What is the difference between external and internal-frame packs?
One other advantage for an external frame pack is that you can hang stuff off of it everywhere. It's not enough advantage for me to give up the additional comfort of an internal frame, though.

comment How should I remove a tick?
Vaseline may take a day or two to kill the tick. It's better to remove it as soon as possible to reduce the likelihood of disease.

comment I found a Deer Tick on my friend and removed it, what should I do now?
I'm used to giving medical advice like that to my kids. It's odd, they don't trust me either. :-)
