comment Do dog life jackets have the same ratings as humans?
You might want to wait until your dog is fully grown first, because many dogs are buoyant enough they can float all day with no effort. Our golden retriever was born to swim and she's float around on the lake all day, your dog might be the same.

comment What can I do on a honeymoon in New Zealand while five months pregnant?
@mattnz: The deaths on the Tongariro crossing are pretty much always people that went completely unprepared for the alpine environment. It's pretty easy to avoid getting into trouble.

comment What is the most effective way to flee from an alligator?
Cold blooded animals have plenty of stamina to last through a fight to the death; If an alligator/croc can wrestle for hours with a wildebeest to victory, it could definitely handle a measly human.

comment How to camp in wolf country?
Coyotes are also a lot smaller than wolves, and don't hunt in groups. An adult human would dominate a coyote.

comment How to stay hydrated with minimum water usage
@Aravona: that often repeated claim is really only true during very intense physical activity, or in very hot environments. For most situations, drinking when thirsty is a perfectly suitable system.
