I’m going camping the Porcupine Mountains this week and have been reading about BEAR! safety all week. I have my BEAR! spray and air horn.
I’m wondering how “Tony Montana” I need to be with the spray. Do I just unload on any BEAR! within the 30 feet radius?
What about BEARS! in your campsite. I read somewhere to yell, bang pots, and charge at the BEAR!. WTF? Charge a friggin BEAR!. Really?
I’m also obsessing about smelling like food. I’m worried I’ll spit some mouthwash on the ground and have a pack of raging BEARS! in my campsite. They also say not to sleep in the clothes you cook in. But I’m camping. Its not like I’m bringing my entire wardrobe. I was thinking about having some “cooking” clothes, basically a shirt I put on when I cook, and throw in my car at night. How do most people manage this?
So what is your BEAR! safety strategy?
Anything you can offer that’s not in the typical BEAR! safety checklist would be much appreciated.
