Is it appropriate to ask historical questions about the great outdoors on our forums?
For instance, I have had no luck answering the following question:
What gear did John Muir actually take on long trips?
As a Californian, John Muir is the legend of the outdoors. But the stories around what gear he took backpacking hardly seem plausible (no food, but also no hunting equipment?) I want a solid gear list.
Even ignoring the specifics of that question, are historical questions about the great outdoors and survival fit for our forums?
