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 How do I take care of Gore-Tex boots?
I'm not sure, but I had a pair of Goretex light hiking boots. I found out the hard way they were no longer waterproof, after 5-6 years of occasional use.

comment What can I do to prevent altitude sickness?
Good answer. I was going to say just about the same thing. Incidentally, I have seen people on diamox have acute altitude sickness after a few days. Maybe it works mostly on the symptoms and is best only for a day or two at altitude?
