1. As per my first post I would not carry a bear banger in the sierra.

2. Just mentioned it for those interested in a signaling device.

3. As for irony what about the legality of carrying a firearm in a NP (with proper concealed carry permit) but bear spray is illegal?


Who can't do everything he used to and what he can do takes a hell of a lot longer!

I always appreciate sarcastic responses. Actually, I do carry a satellite phone when I am solo backpacking. Since I am 64 years old with a medical condition, my wife likes me to have the phone.

I'm glad you took it that way.

If I were in your shoes I'd probably carry that stuff too.
