Wow great read, OP! I love camping and backpacking and even though I'm not really one who would look forward to a survival situation like this, I learned a lot from your experience.
I think the thing that impressed me the most and the greatest tool for one in a situation like that is attitude. When you mentioned the wolves I initially thought of it as a potential problem, but you were actually looking forward to hearing them as it would bring some dinner entertainment! Haha very inspiring.

I think they do it for efficient travel because I see some other non-predatory spieces do the same thing. But I have not asked an expert.
I myself am extremely moved at the site of a Wolf. They are a social species and though I don't recommend doing this if you are at all uncomfortable, whenever I get the opportunity I just sit there and let them come up and investigate me. Once when I was lucky enough to come across a brave enough Alpha the pack took the time to sit with me for a while.
Images like these really yank at my heart.
Wolf and Hunter

Your experience with them is so much more preferable. That was what I was wondering about. They spend time with you? Just....wow.

One question: of all the things you had packed, it all made sense but one thing. The bike wheel inner tube. What would that be for?
Okay, I'd like to set the record straight on a few things here. First of all, I would like to start by saying this area is not as remote as he would like to make you believe. I know, because, I live within a few hours drive and have many local friends. Sometimes I joke and say its the "edge of civilization", but nature is my backyard.
