    That's all true. It is perhaps the most multi-use item a hiker will ever have. One word of caution, though - the other side of the coin is that it's a single point of failure item. Have you ever...

    You seem to imply that trail cameras are only ever placed along the footpath of trails themselves. Is that true?

    This is a contradiction. You recommend to conduct bio breaks far enough away where one can't be seen, then you go on to give reasons why locations of trail cameras should not be disclosed. But...

    Do you shut the door of a bathroom stall toilet when you use it? Do you have curtains/blinds on the windows of your house?
    Do you wear clothing when it's warm enough outside not to? If so, why?...

    It hadn't even dawned on me that since Ivory is soap, grating it might produce something akin to Ivory flakes and could be similarly used. I guess I'm still trying change my old paradigm that laundry...

    Soap vs. Detergent

    I've had a down bag for 15 years without ever washing it. I'm usually pretty fastidious about getting my face clean before bed, I wear a hat, and have either used a bag liner (old days) or wore PJs,...

    The more relevant information is, what will the temps be at bedtime? They may be plenty above bug territory. You have to account for the whole night, not just the portion near the low.

    Nice. I have a TNF alpine pack too. I offered it up many years ago but no takers. Then I realized, it's actually a darn good pack, and kept it!

    Seems to me that, at the very least, their instructions for [putting one in / bringing one out] of long term storage are inadequate.

    Maybe that's part of their business model, IDK.
