comment What's the problem with electrolyte imbalance and how do I mitigate it?
Yes and no... Eating something salty while drinking water is sufficient. Sports beverages are not necessary (and the verdict is out on them anyway -- lots of excess sugar).

comment How should we split up a 3 person tent?
@whatsisname True - but I once met 1/2 a party at 'Island Lake' who were hungry... the other 1/2 were (we determined) 3 miles away at '1,000 Island Lake' -- fat but cold.

comment Should I re-wax downhill skis after using skins?

comment How can I prevent snow-balls building up in my dog's paws?

I would argue the same goes for any bag... even ones with ratings.

comment Thermal rating on vintage sleeping bags
I've never seen a pounds of fill rating on a bag - but often a degree rating. Is this a European thing?
