comment What is the main purpose of the foam inside a self-inflating mat?
You shouldn't have to inflate them. We have a range of ones for the family, and as long as you lay them out an hour or so before you intend to lie on them they just require that you close the valve. No blowing required.

A bit localised, methinks, both in time and region. I have added the US tag anyway.

This seems an awful lot like spam. I think it would be a better question if you removed all mention of that product

comment How can a walking style be changed?
You only land on the toe first when sprinting, and even then it is only the initial part of the sprint. Recommended technique is to land on the heel and roll round to the toe. This is what all my marathon coaches taught me.

comment Sleeping solutions when camping with dogs?
If you think she needs the comfort, definitely take a blanket or sleeping bag piece for her - wouldn't have thought she would actually need it if you are just under a tarp.

comment How to cope with thorns when hiking barefoot?
If they don't cause you discomfort during the day I would probably wait till the evening, but yeah - needling them out does take a bit of effort. I actually wish I could still hike barefoot, but the skin on my feet has long since softened so I envy you even the annoyance of thorns!
