my ultralight gearlist

2020.

this page is about what I do.

it is not about what you do...


a bear safety plan.

Don't encourage bears to associate humans with food.

Maybe consider a no cook food plan... Just sayin'


This came about from years of habitually poor food

safety / storage practice by hikers and forest visitors.


Forest managers have a saying-

"A Fed Bear is a Dead Bear" - and it may be your fault.

Do not ever let a bear steal your food.


how you can help yourself.

- don't camp at established campsites.

- don't build fires at camp.
- eat supper before you reach camp.

- wash hands before and after eating.

- don't handle food in camp except to hang

your food bag 100 yards away from camp.
