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?

comment Winter food: which types of food are less inclined to freeze?
@Amine I like Kate's answer. Just another thought for you: we went igloo-camping last weekend and my trail mix was a big hit with the group.

comment The outdoors, solitude and dealing with loneliness
I think the idea scares me a lot less than you, but I've never been backpacking alone. Maybe that's what I'll do this weekend. Good luck, friend.

I agree water content is the key. But you mention peanut butter; isn't peanut butter oil-based and not water-based?
