comment Rules for Carrying flammable subtances in UK
Additionally, despite the myths, it is more often not-rainy than rainy. Check to see if all areas allow fires - some don't due to risk of wildfire. Yes, even in the UK.

comment Are there any phobia-friendly ways to deal with flies?
Yeah - the hat for me is essential when we go camping on the west coast. Mine is a little bit more fashionable than that one (not much) but there are many types.

comment Activities at the campsite
Definitely a +1 for "Run around as fast as you can" - this game is its own reward, although as the kids get bigger it needs to include "and jump over/off/through dangerously high/sharp things"

comment Ways of attaching a DSLR on a ACT Trail 32 backpack
My recommendation would always be to have it in your pack, but if you want it on the outside this is pretty solid. I wouldn't worry about not being able to see it.

comment Why is a “Czech bed roll” called this? History, uses?
Your question has the answer. And @furtive's answer clarifies. The ones you are looking at are called this because they are from the Czech Army. Ones from other countries armies are not called Czech beds!

comment How to preserve cheese while backpacking?
Also of some import is: where are you going? In Scotland (and other colder climates) some cheeses can effectively last forever. Certainly longer than a 2 week holiday. I'm maybe not talking about brie, here, but definitely cheddars etc
