comment Gas or liquid fuel lighter?
Indeed I have four backups: lighter, flint, a lens and windproof matches. And of course, standard wood plow. fire and lamps is something I always have multiple backups of.

comment Best/safest wood to carve a spoon from?
@TimothyStrimple: I find the spork extremely impractical. I have a set of spoon, knife and fork that are extremely light and are bent in a way that they "spoon". They lock together so they don't wander around separate when packed.

comment How to safely carry a fixed-blade knife?
I always feel uneasy at the idea of carrying around a fixed blade. I think it may get you in trouble with the law if they stop you with one around. I think if you have a well locked foldable is much better legally.

comment Where in the Alps is it safe to drink the water without filtering?
I once was in Tromsø, North of Norway. Got on a mountain close to the city, saw a spring. I thought: if I can't drink safely the water from a spring on a mountain at the North pole, I don't know what else I can. Drank a handful. Tasted like freedom, the real one.
