22525Re: Think of purchasing a Bearikade Expedition Cannister as purchasing Gold -- it will not lose its value
- May 2, 2012Too funny! I agree that my Bearikade, ( Weekender ), has been WELL worth the initial outlay, but it has paid for itself repeatedly in my years in the Sierras! It even has some 'war scars' from a prolonged attempt to open it by a bear in Vidette Meadows several years back. If I had to get 8 - 9 days worth of food from MTR to Whitney Portal, I would opt for the Expedition everytime over seperate containers. It is going to save on a lot of weight and you can put a lot of your other gear in it as your food supply dwindles.
