That alone may scare off the bears .

I'm not sure of this covers the probe shooting stunners or just the old style tasers, so you'd have to do your own research before purchase. Due diligence; the rule to live by.

Thankk You !!

Haven't seen that one, I'll have to watch for it. Not sure i'd want to spend enough time around bears for them to become comfortable with me. Even a bear being "playful" would hurt.

I've seen people on these bear shows lately I watch on Animal Planet and the bear(s) are so calm and so are the people.
I'm talking about this show called "Grizzly Diaries"
Of course in the end he was killed by a bear but he was so good and the bears were so friendly with him in the beginning.

Actually, I've been pondering this. The machines I would need to take with me are much more portable than they used to be. Not sure I could actually camp out, but i'm starting to think that maybe day trips (road only trips) might be within my reach. Assuming I can afford the gear i'd have to take.

Won't ever be able to do the lone in the middle of nowhere thing, but the places that can be accessed by car are better than nothing.

Theres a place up by Gallina where you can take a short hike and end up on the top of a cliff. The valley beneath is beautiful. The road up there is probably still too rough for my current vehicle tho so i'm guessing that option is out.

Ah well, guess i'll start looking at the hoops i'd need to jump through to go much of anywhere first, then decide how much freedom it would allow me.

I think the right choice of 80s music would be sufficient. A new use for mp3 players! Bear defense!

The roads here in the mountains are rough too.
You pretty much need an atv to get around here in most places.
Camping out might be a little much but day trips sound like a good idea.
As far as 80's music, 6/3 can be in charge of that.
Wow, that would be a sight. Have you all ever seen that print, I believe it's called 'dancing bears?' There's a bunch of bears dancing in the forest. That would be a blast to have some music from the 80's that 6/3 put together (because he is the 80's Guru) and we can all dance around with these bears. I'm dreaming but it would be nice. I have strange fantasies. LOL

A nice Oct-Nov morning at the Bosque Del Apache might do you good. Very easy access if needed. They even have a mountain lion or two there, if you are lucky enough to see them.

good luck.

Some of the places I used to live, an atv was my main mode of transport. I miss those days.

Havn't seen the dancing bears print, but would love to see some bears having a happy dance. Does anyone remember the old cartoon where the bears go around picking up trash in the park? Pick it up put it in the bag BOOP BOOP... dancing the whole time. Loved that cartoon.

Bosque Del Apache just might be what the doctor ordered. Close enough to places that I can get help if needed, but still full of things to see and photograph. Its been probably 25 years since i've been there. Guess i'll stock up on some bottles (the oxy filled kind not the whiskey kind) and my other stuff and give it a shot.

I appreciate the encouragement, it helps. Staying home/housebound can become a habit.
