comment What are good ways to dry shoes?
Fixed links and images. I mention dry guy boot dryer, but there are several other manufacturers making boot dryers, this is just the one I have and was one of the cheaper ones I found on amazon.

FWIW. I ran a 'ghetto tubeless' setup on a stock surly pugsley for a while with no issues other than needing a fresh squirt of stans after a while.

comment Fat Tyre Punctures
@Blam - No reason you couldn't use that type of sealant, but my google-fu pulled up a lot of references to people using stans in their tubes, most likely because they already had it hanging around and had the tools to inject it in the tubes.

comment How to keep my hydration pack tubes and valve from freezing?
According to the chart at engineeringtoolbox.com/ethanol-water-d_989.html To lower the freezing point of a solution of water and ethanol to 25f from 32f, you would need to have the alcohol percentage of the solution at 10%. That means you would need to add nearly an entire 750ml bottle of 80 proof vodka to a 100oz hydration pack to lower the freezing point. So, considering this, I don't think that adding alcohol is a practical solution to preventing freezing of water in low temps. I assume saline solutions will be too salty for practical application as well.

Wow, in all my searching, I never found anything like this. Pretty cool product, but might be a bit of overkill for my own usage.
