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. :-)

comment Are there beaches on the East Coast (US) where one can camp without a permit?
If you go a little farther south you can camp on the beach at the Everglades, and likely have the beach to yourself. Mosquitoes are really bad in the summer. nps.gov/ever/planyourvisit/backcamp.htm

comment When stranded at sea, should I not ask for a tow?
This is not true any more. Once people claimed salvage rights if they towed a boat in international waters, but that has since changed.

comment Hiking boots vs trail shoes
I might have to try those. Ordinary running shoes don't have enough side support.
