#19- I want a pack that weighs an ounce, will expand to carry 70 liters of winter mountaineering gear, and will carry it comfortably. Oh. And it should cost less than a hundred bucks. And be waterproof.

(Well, in fairness, there's a lot of that in "traditional" backpacking venues too.)
#20- Quilt or bag?

#21- I've got this lightweight Maglite that only uses 2 D cells...
(Minutes after reading this, 20% of the BPL readership is on their way to the ER in cardiac arrest.)
#22- What kind of stove should I use for this winter trip coming up?
Buy a canister stove, take it apart, get some other bits and pieces, a welder and a lathe'd be handy...
