"Them" is us, taxpayers, voters, PCT hikers, thanks.
Confrontation with a cop in my town will not only land me in jail, it might
land me in the hospital also. So I keep my mouth shut and jus' do w'at da
I vote hard as hell and write letters where I think someone is listening.
Standing on your morals when faced with a baton in the face is the true test
of courage. Goodluck.
I agree that the regulations mandating bear canisters are a short sighted
decision based upon little experience. A law is only as good as it is
enforced. I kind of like Monte's idea of carrying a rist rocket (sling shot)
and zapping any bear that comes near.
I've carried a southern Antagoian, left-handed, inversion, anti-bear whistle.
I've been using it around my house for years and haven't seen a bear in over
25 years! It works great!
