comment Climbing Mount Teide from sea-level
@cluons I think two days is safe. Will it be fun? Probably not. I might do it in two, but I think I would suggest three days being a lot more pleasant.

comment What kinds of knives are allowed while camping in California?
Great answer, Timothy. Does this mean that in order for me to carry my 6-inch fixed blade while backpacking, I have to carry it in a visible location? (I can't just throw it in my pack?)

comment What are the repercussions of entering National parks during US Government shutdown?
@Joe We tested out this question this weekend. I believe it is illegal to enter National Park land (but who will stop you). However, it is still legal to enter National Forest land. National Forest have never had gates to lock you out. The campgrounds are all closed, though.

comment Is caffeine helpful or hurtful when backpacking?
I go backpacking with people that are used to drinking coffee every morning. It's never been a problem. But they might get a headache if we skipped it.
