    You keep repeating this thing about 20 feet/ten minutes, and as I pointed out in the other thread in which you said it there seems to be no credible source for it. No authority I've been able to find...

    If you pay attention to the simplest precautions regarding distance, what you handle, touching your face, and washing your hands I don't see how you can "feel" more vulnerable than in a relatively...

    One of the trickiest things in life is figuring out who to ignore. People like you make it a lot easier.

    I'd been planning a backcountry snowshoe trip to Rocky Mtn National Park but called it off (the only way to make it work around Covid responsibilities was to drive straight through and sleep and eat...

    Since you're making such a big deal about how well-educated you are on the subject, I looked around a while to see who else was saying what you are, specifically the parts about how long the virus...

    Yeah, I posted the following in another thread yesterday, I got it in email.

    "While backpackers are ordinarily required to stay in the shelter, at this time users are authorized to use a tent...

    They also sent this out to those with a current backcountry permit (and perhaps others also.)

    "While backpackers are ordinarily required to stay in the shelter, at this time users are authorized...

    If you're hanging, an Ursack is a waste of money, IMO.

    Most of what you're asking about in regard to freeze-dried stuff I think you'll find if you just poke around on the various companies' websites. Regarding white rice, plain old instant Minute Rice...

    Exactly!

    In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to learn as we move along (people keep forgetting that we are in the very early stages of this) that the mortality rate is actually even lower than it...

    Yeah, there's always someone else to blame for people being idiots, especially if it's a company. Why not just sue Krakauer for writing the book? Shoot, he probably even made money from book sales, a...

    Good point on location data, BUT some apps use degrees-minutes-seconds and others use decimals. It's easy to imagine someone who is disoriented or on the verge of panic not communicating which they...
