      would have been tight...what do you all think about that plan? We

      weather...its on for next year...

      Hi Vera,

      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.
