Here's my new can, "tastefully"(?) decorated with red reflective tape and a sticker acknowledging my favorite highway. I'm not a big fan of bear cans, due to their extra weight, but I guess its a necessary evil.

Same can, a few years later.
Yes, the Weekender - (and BTW, bought last century - proved to be a wise investment); just slapped on a new HST sticker too .

Way back then, if you mentioned SnowNymph's name, you got 20% off, and free shipping.
Interesting too that prices have not gone up that much, considering.

If you'd like a sticker for your can, PM me with address info. I have 5 spare.

I sent Eric a PM yesterday for a couple of HST stickers. I just made the decision to go ahead and get the Bearikade Weekender. Thanks for the information.

Howdy Benny, don't you at least have a FF sticker to put on there for now?

Hey Gary, good to hear from you. Yeah, I'm pretty pathetic in the stickers department. I'll make sure to get some stickers on the can asap. I requested some HST stickers from Eric earlier in the week, so hopefully those will be on the way.

Don't feel bad. I've had my can since 2009 and The first stickers put on it was this year. Now it at least has a High Sierra Topix logo and sheep from backcountry.com.

With or without stickers, that's one classy can you've got yourself there!

Nice can. You need to take it out and roll it in the dirt and beat it up a little! :D
