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.

comment Does eating snow help dehydration?
@RussellSteen I like math more than most people, but the experts have other practical information. For instance, the air-to-water ratio is the limiting factor in getting enough water from snow to survive. So, digging down deep in snow for a more compressed water source is vital to survival. I feel that should not be left out of the answer.
