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.

comment When stranded at sea, should I not ask for a tow?
@Laura: so I've been told, or at least something like 50%. I have no idea, but I think that towing and the legal implications of a tow at sea fall in the "unexpected" that an outdoor skipper may face during his activity.

No outdoor site is complete without the drop bear reference.

comment Where in Europe is wild camping permitted?
@Roflcoptr: The reference is that I know my country. Most communes forbid wild camping because they want to have a legal reason to prevent unregulated gypsies camping and/or more in general Camping Cars (which are a huge pain for cities). When it comes to dangers, it is not uncommon to hear of people wild camping that are assaulted and robbed. Flash floods may occur in some areas, especially in the North. We had people die (mostly boy scouts) a few years ago, in a place where I camped myself (like an idiot). It's difficult for me to find references to news happened years ago, but that's it.
