    Bear canisters

    Iíve never carried a bear canister. Doubtful Iíll enjoy putting a large canister in my 40L pack. Anyone strap the empty canister on top of the pack and transfer the food into it at camp?

    So we arrived at Bear Mtn Inn at 7:45 am on Sunday (today) and picked up an Uber in short order. Two drivers cancelled on us right off the bat but we got the ride.

    Was in NY (CT border to Dennytown Rd.) two weeks ago. Very dry. Relied on the wells and towns. Carried 3L often. Bugs were virtually a non issue. Enjoy the trip.

    Iím with you. I use a bandanna as a wash cloth and bronners. This gets all of the salts and oils off of my skin. I wash clothing (underwear and socks) in a gallon ziplock.
