      Knee-slapper!  Thanks for the day-end laugh, and I believe you are right that Gary Larsen already covered that one!:-))))  No offense intended, Red Buffalo, but DON'T SLEEP WITH YOUR FOOD!

      Two options

      - eat less

      - hang excess food with the old counter balance method. Between MTR and
      Pinchot Pass it is still legal to do so.

      There are no bear lockers before you get to Woods Creek.

      Sleeping with your food is about the dumbest thing I can think of -
      actually, I bet Gary Larson already thought of that. Crunchy, with a
      chewy center...
