    Met a guy in Black Rock Desert with a 4WC. He made his own rubber drip rail on the roof of the camper to channel water collected to drop inside the drip moldings of the Tacoma. I want to say it was called trim-lock? It rained on us while we were out there and his mod definitely worked.

    2 is fine. That awning isn't very heavy.

    To those of you who drove up to Bozeman and camped along the way (and to any Montana locals), what kind of bear precautions should be taken. I’ve backpacked and camped extensively in much of the western U.S., but never in grizzly country.

    We had bear spray with us and bear bells on our dogs. We also kept the dogs on leash unless we were in a very open place.

    The guidance we got from the GFC guys was "you'll want bear spray, either liquid or lead".

    Did you store food in bear canisters? I’ve got an Rtic cooler and wonder if it’s odor-proof.

    We will be heading out at the end of July to pick up our GFC. Any recommendations on places to stay would be great.

    We did not use bear canisters and we did use an Rtic cooler, no bears ate us?

    Basic back country rules here in MT are to suspend your food or put it in a bear proof canister. The cooler is no where near bear safe. Recommend a quick google about storing food in bear country. As far as keeping them at bay, “typically” speaking or bear bells are the best method. Bear spray is good to have on hand too.

    It depends on the cooler. Some are certified by IGBC and are fine. I’m not sure that RTIC actually has the IGBC sticker but it does mention bear resistant in the specs.

    If it is helpful, I saw that Costco was selling two large canisters of bear spray for $40.

    Yeah it’s a good deal too! Normally you are looking at $25-30 for a can that size. Not something I have had to use yet (nor do I want to), so price is the only review I have on it thus far.

    :hattip:

    That is what I was seeing on a quick check. I almost grabbed some, but I don't have any plans yet for bear country and I'm a bit unhappy about that.

    Weird freaking year . . .

    Little different for me. I live in bear country, so it was a no-brainer for me to purchase. Keep one in each rig. Granted it’s black bears we have, which are giant wusses. I just let my dog out when one gets on property and she properly trees them.

    Lots of black bears around where I live; I encounter them a couple times a year or so on my mountain bike, and they always run from me. It’s grizzly behavior that I’m more unfamiliar with.

    I hang my food backpacking, but we’ll be on a two week trip after picking up the GFC, mostly dispersed camping. That’s a lot of food to hang.
