When the wife and I were dating, I was spending a lot of time from April to November in the boonies, setting up my mining camp and dredging for gold, all bear country. She was worried about the bears and asked me about how I stayed safe. I told her I had a system, I put mothballs around camp and stuff. First time she went with me she had to know about the rest of my system, so being a smart alec I popped off, "I always take somebody with me I can out run."
That was nearing 20 years ago and I still sleep with one eye open!
