it all with that and maybe a bear bag, maybe....just for non
essentials. However guys eat more than women do and I have to admit it
would have been tight...what do you all think about that plan? We
aborted this years hike due to our start date and the bad
weather...its on for next year...
Here is the link to Bearikade Rental Program
They are much more expensive to rent but you can get a lot more into
them. I dehydrate my own food and did the whole JMT without resupply.
Other alternatives (cheaper) is to purchase a Bearvault. It is
lighter and bigger than the garcia.
