comment Can I use my leather jacket to go to ski?
If you fall, you will get soaked. Also, ski pants are seriously a must.

@gerrit I live in the area, before I answer: do you want to hike for one week at a stretch, or do a few smaller 2-day hikes?

When building a campfire, if you set the logs further apart they get more air and burn faster. If you set the logs closer together, they get less air and burn slower.

comment What type of knife should I carry while rock climbing?
What are you looking to cut while climbing? Is this for opening dried food packs while on a porta-ledge, or for cutting rope? I'm not sure I understand.

Can you describe to me a climbing situation in which you need to cut rope? This is not something I have run into.

That is an interesting point. You didn't exactly answer my question though. Is there something that would work?
