comment Cheap way to get around Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka - alternatives to the JR Pass?
@sguha: the page I linked to says it's valid for "all JR Group Railways [...] local trains". The Yamanote is a local JR line. I've also used it myself on the Yamanote line (though admittedly that was in 2004).

comment Shelters near trails in Bavaria?
@gerrit: you're right, there are some, though I don't think they have quite the same character of remoteness. The DAV has a full list here dav-huettensuche.de/… - but some of them are actually in hte outskirts of towns.

comment How am I supposed to travel with all these hard copy guidebooks?
What exactly do you mean with "Kindle software doesn't seem advanced enough to allow for smooth interaction"? seems a rather nebulous criticism at the heart of the question.

comment From Canada to Norway, through the North Pole, is that possible?
@gerrit: while global warming may soon allow you to reach the North Pole by ship, this is not yet the case.
