comment How can I boost morale on long backpacking trips?
Geocaching or letterboxing often works wonders if there's some on your route (and there will be a lot of the time) - turns a (I quote!) "boring walk" into a "walk with a purpose" for many I know.

comment How to cheaply introduce someone to backpacking
@ŁukaszLech Sure, by "good footwear" in this context I more meant something that was just suitable for walking - but I agree I could have been clearer! Having said that, often where I am in the UK there's lots of sales where I've picked up good, waterproof walking boots for £50-ish or less, and they've lasted well.

comment For fording cold rivers, is there any special clothing (as opposed to makeshift bags or tightly connected raintrousers) to stay dry and warm?
@gerrit They answer the main question as best I can - "What is suitable clothing for fording rivers." I don't know the answer to that particular sub-question, but if that was the main question you might want to edit the title as such!
