I would love to tell you the harrowing escape that Geraldine and I made while camping. How bears raided our campsite and we were soon yelling warnings towards these large mammals to keep them at bay but nothing like this even remotely happened. The closest bear I came to (that I know about) during the trip occurred when I saw this bear crossing sign. Now I will admit to you that I was very scared to camp in bear territory and those bear canisters at our campsite didn't relieve my fear but encouraged it. I guess I rather camp where the bobcats and alligators roam than where bears live.
