    Couldn't use my trail name here, it was taken. I got called trip on a hike long ago because I'm so busy looking around at the scenery that I trip quite often on something.

    This analogy is completely false. bear sightings are not extremely contagious and they are not 10x more deadly than the flu. Your attitude puts more people in danger.
  6. Hysteria? So the CDC is trafficking in hysteria?...

    Hysteria? So the CDC is trafficking in hysteria? I don' think so. As for the math part, that's kind of ironic because the math I'm seeing says this pandemic may cause a depression.

    Right now is probably not a good time to go out. California just locked down and it is looking more likely everyday that many parts of the US will be locked down. In order for us to keep the spread...

    Re-supply would be more of a problem, especially if you need equipment replacement. For example, you get off the trail in Daleville hoping to pick up something at the outdoor trail store but it's...

    This is why I no longer overnight in GSMNP. I like going where the wind blows me and not where I'm supposed to be. I did get a "permit" for sites in the maddron bald loop not long after all this was...

    4 eyed, in Walter's case he cached these containers so who knows how long a bear (or several bears) had time to work them. While it is very possible containers would be lost the big difference is the...

    Walter, this is why I shied away from BV and Berikade when I decided on my can, they are too round. I have a mini garcia (bare boxer) and their shape makes them harder to roll. It will spin in...

    A black bear tried to get into mine Nov 2108. It was in a thicket of small bushes about 75' from my tent. The can was moved about 10 yards from where it was placed. Placing reflective tape on the can...

    After hanging or 25+ years I've been using a bear can for the last four years and don't miss hanging one bit. Rather than searching for the right tree and getting everything just right, I'm relaxing...
