@KateGregory I've heard a lot of intense hiking stories, but yours is by far the most hardcore. Kudos.

comment Do bag liners add the same warmth value to all sleeping bags?
On non-backpacking trips I have taken to filling my sleeping bag with all the clothes I brought, coats, hats, socks, you name it. We found filling the sleeping bag with cloth is more effective than liners. (Of course, if you Are backpacking, all you'll have is a coat and some extra socks.)

comment Is it possible to sunburn through clothing?
I am a particularly pale redhead and have (very rarely) burned through white-cotton t-shirts. It happens. But I am very pale, even for a redhead, and seem to lack the ability to tan.

comment What can I do to help relieve joint pain in fingers after climbing?
I agree! Just a note: anxiety and fear will make you grip harder. This is something to watch out for, particularly if you're outdoors.

comment What is the fastest style of sled?
I'm going to hand this one to you. It is certainly the best answer. I wish we had something a bit more definitive for an answer, so I looked around and posted some pseudo-scientific results I found below. Thanks for the interest!
