A super soaker full of texas pete will deter a dog/bear/robber attack, AND ensure you are properly prepared in the event an impromptu chicken fry breaks out.

Are we not allowed to shoot the wasps? Are we allowed to sue the CG if we get stung?

If you come around my camp with a super soaker full of Texas Pete, well.............................................. .................................................. .............................................I'm gonna invite you over for a beer and ask you to spray a little on whatever is on my grill.

Back on the subject of armed. Leaving for camping in the Plumas Natl forest in a few hours. Large bears in the area. They've never been an issue in the past, but armed? You betcha. Two large caliber hand guns that get stowed away and stay stowed away, unless they're needed to prevent loss of life. At the shooting range they're used for safe entertainement. Away from the range, they're tools for a job that hopefully will never need to be completed. People with us don't even know I have them. They are purely for emergency use only.

I figured RVing in bear country would justify a .45-70. The wife didn't see it that way

Sounds to me like you are approaching it the way I would approach it. You have a good "back up plan"
Enjoy your trip!

She just looked at me and said, "Denied." You'd think I'd have better luck seeing as how she was the one who refused to RV in bear country in anything that had a canvas side...

May you have better luck.

Have towed a tt for up to 3 months at a time over past 3 yrs. Southern run in the winter, also go local and NE states in the summer and fall. I stay aware of who and what is happening around me and have moved from Wally world or a rest area several times. Have never had to resort to a firearm. But will if I have to. Went to a certified school for 4 days defensive handgun course and I practice enough to feel confident.

Thanks! Trip was great and as expected no bears bothered us. We had fun in the camp site with empty cans on tree branches and a co2 bb pistol.
