Bears and hybrids
Looking for some feedback specifically from hybrid owners who camp in bear country.
We are taking our 23IKSS out to the Smokies this weekend and will be camping at the Elkmont campground in the park. Bear sightings are not uncommon in the Smokies, and the park rangers have strict rules about food storage. They have lockers for folks in tents, or you can keep it locked in your TV. Any coolers left unattended outside will be taken by the park rangers.
If we were in a pop up I'd definitely keep the food in the TV, but since we are mostly a hard-sided trailer, I'm thinking we should be fine keeping food in the fridge and pantry. There will only be four of us this trip, so we could turtle and just sleep on the couch and dinette bed, but I'd rather deploy the beds. Anyone ever had issues with bears sniffing around the bunk ends?
I live with fear every day, and sometimes she lets me go fishing.
