I can't beleive I havn't seen this before or thought of it myself.

That is really cool! I've got to try it when I get home.

Something for those cold mornings when those tabs are so hard to push. Just don't tell the bears! :)

Haha, yea, I've been doing that for a couple of years after reading about that technique......works great!! But now I have a Bearikade so I guess I can sell my bearvault or keep as a back-up.

I thought that's what the National Park Pass was used for. :)
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
