comment Does hiking with a dog in bear country increase or decrease your risk of a bear encounter?
Accepting this answer since it is the only one with any "authority" behind it - though I would still prefer something showing statistical significance (ie, a list of %bear attacks with dogs involved vs. % of people hiking in bear country with dogs...)

comment What's the UPF of a T-Shirt or jeans?
I call marketing scam (especially if they try to charge extra). Anything that blocks the sun, even partially, will provide some sun protection. I can't say I have known anyone to get a tan through regular ole' clothes...

Well - per my answer, white will make you more visible... and shows dirt faster ;) Was just curious if whoever advised you against it had their reasons.

WAAS is a series of fixed towers that send out correction signals. In simplified terms if you are near one, it can tell your GPS 'satellite #7 is reading off by this amount, adjust accordingly' - this can be done post process too by downloading the info from the nearest when you get back.

comment Thinking about a road trip out West
Dispersed camping (just pulling off the road and pitching a tent) is legal on most National Forest lands out west. (But not National Parks.)

Interesting thought. Is this from practical experience? I have found that fighting dogs don't really care much for food. And tossing out a chunk of meat will just serve to create another dog pile as the rest of the team lunges for it.
