I would not use anything that a bear could grab in its mouth. 4" is perfect
to grab and carry away.
I am going to Lyell in YNP again this year and I will try 6" PVC because I
of carrying the extra three pounds. I may also go to an alarm and pepper
spray instead. >>
I like the idea, at least for stowing the waste that can't be burned, and
perhaps for the less aromatic foods, like some of the pasta and rice.
Threaded caps are a pretty good seal. I know it's foolish to underestimate
the wit of a NP bear, but I'm going to try this on PCT b/t Florence Lake and
Thomas Edison next week and see what happens. I'll use Velcro to hook up a
bell. Pepper spray the outside for "training"???
