I had a couple general questions concerning overlanding through bear country (Wrangell St. Elias). What's the most efficient and practical way to store a month's worth of food? I've been told that I would need a sufficient amount of bear-proof containers to store all of the food away from the veichle (which I will be sleeping in) every night. Would I be okay rigging a line to suspend the food (not in bear-proof containers) from a tree? If I've left my veichle in the bushfor 4-7 days and gone backpacking, where should I put the food? Still suspended in the tree?
Also, anyone have experience with the bear-repellant sprays? Are they effective in deterring a charging bear?
Any general tips on travelling in bear country would be greatly appreciated.
