At least your bear can did not go floating to the Pacific!
After being so careful not to get wet crossing the river, when I discovered my water bottle missing I went back and waded downstream quite a ways, hoping that somehow my bottle had gotten hung up somewhere. But there was just no way. Gone. Sorry about the unintentional litter. And I wish I could do something about the prevalence of mindset that litters intentionally.
You know, I'd never thought about it before, but my Bearikade would float, wouldn't it? Even though it feels like a big heavy rock when crammed full of food at the beginning of a trip it would be buoyant, at least at first.
