    Travel safe y'all. See you Thurs am. I wanted to ride my bike to this but cannot take that much time off work. Approximately 30 hours of travel each way, good thing y'all get along together.

    Well, I was slightly concerned that if a bear raided camp i would have to outrun at least one of my class mates. Now I see I just need to be behind Shane Adams.

    Patrick will have his Bear Spray as well.......



    ...and by "Bear Spray" I mean his 45/70 slinging 540grain pills of dissuasion in a bears general direction should he decide to get chippy......


    we don't anticipate any problems but like to be prepared......



    Be sure to sign the waiver......


    But seriously....I don't expect any problems.....

    I’m still super jealous I’m not going to make this one but I am taking a different trip :)

    @mmbackpacker could probbably tell you more how the conditions are now but I would be more concerned about the snakes really then the bears...

    I was up in Yellowstone a few years ago and they actually recommend bear spray over guns. I’ve always been told that shooting at them just pisses them off but the spray will mess them up :)

    Seriosly thou you guys should have a blast! I love that part of the country and Idaho. And it is Beautiful!! Not sure which way you guys are heading but if you guys go by Moab it is def worth the extended Stop! And Arches National Park is one of the coolest places ive been!

    Once this class is over we are pointing the truck South East and hammering back....one day home and then we have a 6 day Wilderness first responder class.....then home 2 days......then 3 day cave rescue/confined space.....

    I think @Patrick Rollins and I will be home about 6 days the entire month of June!! Sleeping on dirt more than in a bed almost! No moss growing on us!

    Yeah, keep a clean camp and bears will mostly stay away. Bear spray > guns, science says so....

    The weather is fantastic. Warm days, cool evenings, brisk mornings, most of the spring showers are short or gone completely at this point, replaced by summer. Fires are a real danger out west though. Don’t start a big one is my solid advice. Have fun stay safe, learn a lot and post some pics!
