comment Walking through an active railway tunnel during a long distance walk
In India, do train tunnels have regular safety alcoves like they do in Europe? If so, this is much lower risk than it would otherwise be. Maintenance workers know to step into them when a train is approaching.

comment Is the outdoor ”cottage industry” only about ultralight?
Small, yes, but those are so specialised the demand allowed prices to be hiked way up - which makes them interesting to the big players again. Also they can use those expeditions as good PR so it's a big win.

comment Plus size wet suits?
Jim - we have a 'be nice' rule. Try and adhere to that. Mods are, surprisingly enough, human, and we follow SE and community guidance. You 'despise' volunteers who try to uphold site rules? Currently, the wording does sound a lot like you want a recommendation of a particular brand, and that is explicitly off topic as per the site rules - you can fix that.

comment How to humanely kill an injured rabbit?
I'm going to edit out your paragraph on "most of us are simply psychologically incapable" as this is wrong for pretty much anyone who lives outside cities. I know I used to despatch rabbits with my dad when I was 7, and choosing dinner on the farm and then killing and preparing it. Standard country living.

comment Locating outdoor/hiking shops that sell gas cans / fuel canisters near Ivalo (finland) on a sunday
This type of question just doesn't fit here - it's offtopic, it's shopping recommendation, it's not actually an outdoors question.

revised What's the easiest to release, though solid, knot “on a bight”?
just a quick edit - you don't need to put "Many thanks" or in fact any sort of salutation.

comment What trees/bushes are best suited for a simple bow?
quick comment - you don't really want it to be straight, and you definitely don't want it to be uniformly thick. Ideally you want a curve, and a taper.

comment Should I go to New-Zealand on November instead of December just to make it to the Milford track?
This is purely asking for opinions, I'm afraid - and at the end of the day that doesn't work on Stack Exchange. Some folks would say yes, some no - still won't help you. Have a look at How to Ask for guidance questions that can work here.
