comment What precautions should I take to protect myself and my camp from bears?
@BenCrowell Four is a statistically important number, as the bear considers the group size generally, and there were very few encounters with larger groups (source: Freedom of the Hills, mentioned above). If you do nothing to avoid bears, that is fine, but advising others to do so does not seem responsible.

comment Is it safe to use water purification tablets after their expiration date?
Ok, but the main question remains open: In terms of chemistry what causes them to expire?

The "Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills" book describes the bear triangle just as it is above. Also it is mentioned, that a group of 4 or more people is not attacked by a bear, so this should be the minimum group size anywhere.

comment How do I treat hot spots and blisters when I have no moleskin?
You can put a piece of clean leaf under the duct tape where it touches the hot spot to help removing it without your skin.
