Car Camping in Bear Country? Bring lots of canned food that doesn't need to be stashed in your cooler or hidden high up in a tree. If you like healthy food like me, visit your health food store or organic market for all-natural choices. Use everything up (offer leftovers to your neighbor campers or burn in your fire). Open bottom end of can, flatten out the can, and BURN in your fire. After fire, remove remaining burnt cans and throw out. This way you'll never attract bears and make your life more convenient. - Loretta D.
