comment What refilling material or glue did you chose to resole your trekking shoes? (What works, what doesn't)
Yep - this is the only long term way to do it, and is the way professional cobblers approach the problem.

comment Geocaching websites
I'd have to agree with nhinkle and Aravona here - list questions don't fit on Stack Exchange, so I'll close. I'd suggest looking at Ingress, though - millions of people love the exploring/competitive nature of it (including me)

comment Why do big wall harnesses have two belay loops?
That's a terrifying picture! My risk management head just keeps picturing a tangle at a critical moment...

comment How to prevent mosquitoes entering in your mouth while running?
In western Scotland in the summer this is the only possible solution to prevent inhaling swarms of midges. They are so small you can't easily filter otherwise, but a fine mesh net does the job wonderfully, and is not claustrophobic at all.

comment How to carry perishable foods on a multi-day trip, without it going rotten?
Shem - thanks for the edit. The question was far too broad as it initially stood. Personally, I think it is still a cross between too broad, and a duplicate of various other questions.

comment What kind of car do I need to reach most hiking trailheads near Boulder Colorado, Rocky Mountain NP
Obviously we don't do shopping advice, but I'm also a huge Subaru fan - have had WRX's and Foresters because they survive and get you there. That said, any good offroader will be a good idea.

Amphibent - can you clarify which question you are asking. It looks like you have 3 questions here

comment How to humanely kill an injured bird?
I think this falls within topic - it is something that while not common, can happen to any of us when hiking/camping etc., and it could be useful to know for a couple of reasons (including a poor shot when hunting, I guess - would you waste another bullet?)

comment How should I traverse fields with horses in?
Updated slightly for clarity, and cleaned up comments to remove trespass law discussion

comment How should I traverse fields with horses in?
In Scotland there is no law of trespass (couple of exceptions for military firing ranges etc), so you can walk where you like

comment Tree skiing/riding in Colorado
I had the same query Liam - I originally thought they meant jumping (jibbing?) off trees, but I think they just mean skiing through forested areas.

comment Is it really that unsafe to touch a stranger's wound?
nhinkle - you are absolutely right about that being an expected limit for basic first aiders. Totally agree with getting proper training.

comment How to select a good GPS receiver?
Handheld GPS devices all quote different tolerances. While timing accuracy is important, some devices use other sources, such as inertial navigation etc.

comment Where in the US can I find green mountains to hike like in Scotland, such as Dalveen Pass?
Yep - it can be that green, or bright purple - or unfortunately grey,,,

I think it would be better as a comment on @Russell's answer.

comment Is Tyvek 44grs/m2 (Tyvek® Soft Structure Style 1443R) waterproof enough to be used as a groundsheet/footprint or tent bottom, any experience?
Updated to make it answerable. And upvoted, as it is an interesting question.

ppl - Stack Exchange as a framework does not lend itself well to this sort of thing though. There is no right answer. Opinions really don't work here. I think Liam's links are relevant, but this question is going on hold until it becomes an answerable question.
