[pct-l] Bear Canisters

I will be carrying my Garcia cannister through the Sierras. I was up there 
earlier in the year and the Forest Service was handing out $150.00 fines to 
everyone in the campgrounds for leaving canned food, beer and liquor out. As 
we packed up our backpacks, they were patrolling and stopped to check us and 
make sure we had a cannister. For myself, I feel it is worthwhile to carry 
the cannister and be sure that I am not a part of the problem in any way. 
There is definitely a resale market for used equipment, just check Ebay, 
I've bought and sold many items there.
