Exactly! Except a bear can probably smell them from a kilometer away.

comment Dog Breeds for Backpacking and Trail Running
@ppl I have never seen one before! I'll Google around. Were you thinking of them for running/backpacking/both?

comment What is the longest time you can go, eating only freeze-dried food?
@Marcus I suppose freeze-dried food would be high in salt. But they sell a great variety of it now. Assuming you have unlimited water, I see no reason you couldn't survive indefinitely.

comment Will using a sleeping bag stop the body from adapting to cold?
Adapting to the cold (or the heat) is a long process. I think of it as something I need to try to do in little ways every day. But when I go backpacking/camping I bring the warmest things I can, for temperature. Just IMO.

comment Will the benefit of an axe outweigh the drawbacks and win over a large knife?
Just to clarify, what situation are we talking about: backpacking? hiking and car-camping? General survival? (Perhaps we can clarify this and add a tag to your question?)

comment Dealing with rashes between thighs and around the groin
@Lathrop This is the exact solution I use. Loose boxers are the enemy on a long, hard backpacking trick or serious run.
