comment How bright a flashlight would I realistically need for searching through terrain?
I just asked all the search-and-rescue people I know and they all said that night searches are rare, because they are dangerous. They also said they don't have standard equipment. Mostly, people just grab some 200-lumen head lamps and hope for the best.

comment Can bears smell empty beer bottles?
@WedaPashi I am going to guess that anyone who is getting drunk in the wild is car camping, and not backpacking. And, in that case, it doesn't matter how heavy things are.

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

@ppl I have never seen one before! I'll Google around. Were you thinking of them for running/backpacking/both?
