That is funny.Steve
Thanks, Steve. What kind of summer you having over there?
Rain and more rain. No summer this year.
Last time I went backpacking/camping in Montana I didn't sleep well for just this reason.
Tell me about your trips here, ,or post about it. firstname.lastname@example.org
thanks, Bill. How's life on the farm?
After seeing that Leonardo di Caprio film with the bear attack, I told my husband I never want to camp anywhere with bears!
Read or find on streaming "The Night of the Grizzlies" a documentary on a night in Glacier Park.
Ha! I don't camp anywhere without room service.
Ha. What an Oregonion you are!!
Funny, but I've been woken up in a sleeping bag by a bear!
Tell us about it, here or my email: email@example.com
In the sixties there were six foot wooden signs in the national parks in the west, carved with a standing bear with blood dripping from teeth and claws, and the legend DANGER carved in two feet capital letters. Trumped by PC.
We had some posters like that, in the USFS during that time period, with Smokey looking the same.
I haven't camped in 45 years precisely because of this.
Ah Bruce....it's all over in a moment or two.....
Why does this make me think of the documentary Grizzly Man?
The pictures of Treadwell approaching the browns, all 1200 pounds of them, on his hands and knees are the epitome of crazy.
And I suppose people in tents are like tacos in wrappers.
And sometimes there were bonus things, little pooches, and packed lunches! Perhaps the griz get bonus points...............
That is hilarious - -unless, of course, you happen to be in a sleeping bag in the wilderness at night...
JonYou should add a couple to your neighborhood; they'd keep the coyote population down, as well as the racoons, the possums, etc.......and they don't tend to go after cats! Too small.....................
Lol catching up w u. Glad you de-Drumpfed for a while. Did you see Mike Moore's letter to his daughter? XOWWW
I didn't, WWW. Where was it published? I suppose I could 'google'..
They used to tell you to keep food high up in a tree. Hammocks might be in order too.
Yeah, let's join one of those groups that protest by living up in one of the redwoods for a month or two......I'll bring the food, you the drinks. And no bears there, other than the state troopers wishing they were not there.
I woke up at 1 am the other night and couldn't get back to sleep, so decided to watch tv for a bit. Found this show about a young couple building a Yurt in the mountains of Montana. The Yurt was really pretty and the view was awesome and for two minutes I gave Yurt living in Montana consideration but then they installed a bear alarm and I decided to stay where I was. The closest we get to bears is when a little black bear accidentally veers off path and ambles through the neighbourhood, which results in the police from out town and the two neighbouring towns showing up to hunt the poor thing down.
Ha! That is a good one! Better not be camping on Cinco de Mayo...
