Show your Can!

Post by markskor » Fri Jan 23, 2009 6:55 pm

Thanks to Eric, and some new HST stickers, the customization of my bearikade is coming right along.
Others may also have done some personalization on theirs too. So I ask all:
Show us your can!

Gee, I'm going to rent a Bearikade for our upcoming JMT through hike (Woot: just got my wildnerness-permit reservation for 10 July, the earlier of the two possible starting dates!). Do you suppose the Wild Ideas folks would object if I returned it with a "Got Mountains?" sticker? :lol:

Funny. Out of Tuolumne, I've rented canisters for 8 years. I've gotten the same one 3 times as it had a postal shipping sticker on it with the renter guys name.

Put any sticker on your can that you care to.. They won't peel them off.

They just rent Garcias at Tuolumne, don't they? Last I knew, one had to rent Bearikades directly from Wild Ideas, and I have a feeling they're a little more picky about how their renters leave their [very expensive] canisters... :paranoid:

Hey guys, a bit off topic, but is there anywhere near sequoia/kings canyon that rents bearikades? Whats the process for renting from wild ideas?

What the heck happened to this topic? Thought it was meant to be a thread where people post photos of their bear cans? #-o

Yeah I guess I kind of hijacked it by starting that discussion of how seriously I could deface a rented Bearikade and still get away with it. Mea culpa.

:cool:

Let's see... to help get us back on topic, here is our rented Bearikade in 2004 at the Forsyth trail junction in Yosemite, immediately after we recovered it from where the bear had left it in frustration the previous night, having kept us up nearly all night as she bashed it about, apparently even jumping out of a tree onto it.

Result: Bearikade - 1, Bear - 0!
