Enough is enough, Ali. I just choose my campsites carefully
and avoid areas frequented by a lot of people and, therefore, bears. I don't live in fear of them anymore than you do. I just have a lot more respect for them than you seem to. You get that way if you've had a serious run in with a bear(black), which I have. I read the thread, several times, and just got tired of the BS. Criticize the way you hike? I could care less, but if you put it out there expect some responses. As for hating you? I don't even know you. I just don't care much for BS, that's all.
A big hug and a kiss to you and let's just leave the whole thing lie, huh. Tom
