post #35671 of 43542
Camping in King's Canyon/Sequoia National Parks this weekend. Saw a bear and some other critters but didn't shoot any, except with a camera. Parks seemed fairly empty - perhaps because of the lingering impact of the government shutdown - thanks dysfunctional pols! Hiked for about six hours Saturday without seeing another person except in the first ten and last ten minutes. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

how close was the bear?

we once were maybe 10 feet away from one, while in our car, in the rocky mountains, and he got up on his hind legs and roared. shared the shit out of us.

Pretty close, but scooting across the road away from us and didn't seem to see us. More than close enough for me.

You shouldn't be scared, he was probably just a lumberjack, the correct approach would have been, "hello sir, you are not my type and I don't think my wife would like it."

Joak.
There are pictures of me with my shirt off (I'm not particularly burly), but most of them just look like this.

your mention of smores reminds me of the sandlot. which reminds me, i cant wait to watch that with my son. one of my fave childhood movie all time. he is really getting into sports lately and i think in a year or so he will really enjoy watching it with me.

They are important, especially because he, like his father, likes burned marshmallows. This means they're quite hot.

Loved The Sandlot. Now I'm looking forward to that, as well.

Also, now I want s'mores again. I'm pretty sure we still have enough materials left over to make that happen. Might have to get on that this evening.

This sounds awesome. Definitely more rugged than what we did, but we'll work up to it as the kid(s) get(s) older.

Do you carry bear spray? There's an area I was told about that's supposed to be great for camping, and it's not supposed to be super common to see bears there, but it's not outside the realm of possibility. That being the case, I've debated whether I ought to carry some when I finally get up there.

Did not take bear spray this trip. Also, it was not that rugged. We ended up getting a cabin (no running water, but an awesome wood stove). It was a short, impromptu trip, so it was easier to go that route than to scramble to make sure I had all my tent-camping gear together. (Also, while the lady friend who went with me is an experienced camper, there's something to be said on a camping date for a bed, roof, and wood-burning-stove.)

When I've done actual tent camping trips in bear areas, I have taken spray. Have never needed it, but it just seems like one of those better-safe-than-sorry things.
