CDT Q&A 7: bear prep, Chinese Wall, off-trail exercise, sleep system, toes, etc.

Hey y’all! Whenever I take a zero I try to do a Live Q&A on Patreon that usually lasts 1.5 to 2 hours. Sometimes we edit them down afterwards and post some of the questions on here in case some of y’all who aren’t on Patreon have some of the same questions. These questions are from a Q&A in Lincoln, MT, and I hope y’all find the information here useful/interesting! Here are all the topics/questions discussed and the time stamps, so go through and find something that interests you!
