comment Primitive fire starting in northeastern Brazil
Just a note: I hate the bow-and-drill method. What a pain. For all practical purposes, I would say try to bring a light and a flint.

comment Safest months to hike in Colorado
I do not know Colorado, but in California I have found summers to be much safer for hiking/backpacking. Sure, you might get wet if it rains and a mosquito bloom is a horrible thing, but that's about it.

Thanks for the references. Particularly the second one, which seems to use the terms interchangeably.

comment Is there a web application that can notify you ahead of time if a certain weather forecast is predicted for a certain location?
We have a bunch of meteorologists at work, so I asked them for you. None of them could think of a tool like you wanted. Sorry. Though some of the programmers at work thought it might make a fun project; it's a good idea.

comment How much water should be carried while hiking in the desert?
@Lisa I think your answer would be more useful if you put how long you were in the desert for. Is 6L of water a single day's worth? Two? Twelve?
