Re: Is buying a footprint silly?
Footprints and bathtub floors are great for car camping at heavily developed and heavily used campsites. Often the surface is crushed aggregate which becomes compacted and dished with use.

Re: real eggs in a bag: for how long?
Those plastic containers are too small to fit the large to extra extra large eggs available here. If you can find eggs graded small or medium this may be a solution for you.

One of the best topics here.
I have nothing to contribute other than sincere appreciation for the opportunity to read this discussion. Thank you to all participants for depth and honesty.

Re: Backpackable Kite
Definitely an airfoil/parafoil type. No setup needed. Just leave it all hooked together and cram it in a stuff sack. I have a single line. Makes a nice signal.

Re: MYOG: tyvek ground cover / bivy combo
A note from personal experience: Do not handle Tyvek for the first time in a small room (laundry or bath) without hearing protection. Very loud.

Re: Spark-Lite
I like it. Has anyone attached a lanyard? I am tempted to drill the handle, but not sure it is solid. Is there is a spring inside pressing the "flint" up to the thumb striker?

Re: Frontier Pro filter leaks
actually I find that my platys leak on their own. Poor seal between the push/pull drinking lid and the bottle. The simple top seems to hold better. The platy hose adapter screws on pretty well too.

The good has been clearly stated. The not-so-good: -orange and red are too similar -could use a ridge on tip for easier removal and filling edit: ridge not needed. Just push 90 degrees to tip.
