comment Is there any evidence, one way or the other, that “Adopt a Highway” programs reduce littering?
I think preventing litter / zero impact on the country etc is completely on topic, but asking for evidence one way or the other is really a Skeptics question

comment Difference between full keel and fin keel?
If you have a long fin keel, sure - but the advantage is really about the length

comment Possible to transform (at least two) smartphones into walkie-talkie like devices?
Will try and find the specs on the set I got the kids for skiing. We didn't need to charge them over a 4 day period, and even then only did to be extra safe

comment What is the aspect ratio of a keel and how does it affect your how your boat sails?
Also using a longer keel allows more of its length to be in 'stable' water underneath the turbulent surface layer. This reduces drag losses.

comment Difference between full keel and fin keel?
That said, a high aspect ratio keel will help your upwind route - so a long fin keel could outperform a short full length keel. I need to post something on the aspect ratio question.

In choppy or rough seas a full keel actually lets you point higher. But I agree with the rest of your post

comment Difference between full keel and fin keel?
No, typically a full keel will actually allow you to point slightly higher if all else is identical as it runs the length of the hull, whereas a shorter keel is more at the mercy of waves and wind

comment What is the benefit to telemark skiing?
Cheri - this doesn't answer the question which is "what is the benefit of telemark" - all you have done is describe the different skiing types. Please look at the other answers, including the accepted answer.

comment The best sleeping pad you ever used?
Dusan, no, a question asking for important features of a sleeping mat for use in camping could be perfectly on topic here.

Roddy - Walkie-talkie on standby is > a week. 20 hours is definitely a deal breaker for me - that's no safety margin at all.

this doesn't cover off the main problem @Escoce raised: battery life, and this has got to be one of the top priorities.
