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.

comment FiveFingers or hiking boots?
Just my anecdotal experience: Five Fingers make great hiking shoes, I love them. Unless I'm carrying weight. If you're backpacking you need a stiff-soled shoe to support the weight. You're feet aren't designed for carrying extra weight while backpacking.

comment How to Tell When Minimal Running Shoes Are Worn Out?
Oh no, I think the 'conventional wisdom' is just from experience. I know several runners personally who say that after you run enough miles in a pair of Nike's they start to feel like you're running with wood planks strapped to your feet. I think the rubber they use in modern running shoes just loses its elasticity.

I think you're right. My minimal shoes seem to be lasting longer and I can't think of any good reason to trade them out.
