I'm sorry to hear about Jenny. I never met her in person but she seemed very nice in the videos and I'm sure you'll miss her.

Justin, I am so sorry to hear about Jenny. She was such a pleasure to watch in the videos. I was hoping to meet her in person one day. Sincere condolences and best wishes.

Thanks a lot guys, that’s really nice. My apologies for the unintended thread drift....I tried to sneak the somber news in there subtly & totally got busted haha.
As far as bear bags I’ll probably just go back to using a generic food sack like I used to use years ago. Again, never had any issues with bears then either, but then again I never really camped in areas where bears are a nuisance however the mice & squirrels usually are the bigger threat for stolen food.

I am sorry for you in your loss, dogs leaving can hurt more than anything else.

I’m heartbroken hearing this Justin. Every time I hike with my best buddy Frances I think of you and Jenny. Very sorry.

Justin, I'm so sorry to hear this. You and Jenny were an inspiration for many of our adventures with our old dog (who we lost 2 years ago) and our current dogs (who have a long way to go to live up to Jenny's example!)

My deepest condolences to you. I have so enjoyed the videos of you and Jenny exploring the Adirondacks. It's clear you two had a special relationship. You must be heartbroken. We will all miss the stories of your adventures.

Justin - To add my thoughts regarding Jenny...thanks so much for sharing your adventures with her over the years. I really appreciated your comments in regard to getting my current pooch acclimated to doing trips and being in a canoe. Many of your suggestions have been very helpful so know that she will live on in the actions of our own pooches when in the field.

Until next time...be well.

Now...back to our regularly schedule program...

Been gone for a bit but if my memory serves me correctly, the OP stated that he'd be renting a bear canister while in the High Peaks. The suggestion about using an Ursack was only for when he travels outside that area. Don't mean to ruffle any feathers for all the dedicated canister users but an Ursack, in areas where they are legal, is a viable alternative to using a hard canister. Just my two cents. Take it for what it's worth.

Until next time....be well.

Not to , but why not just get a canister, no ropes needed.

Charlie - If you use the Ursack the way it's recommended you don't need any ropes either. Just a matter of choice; again, where it's legal. I'd never use one in a region where canisters are required. That being said, I like them and will continue to use them where I can. Bottom line, to each their own. Do what works for you and forget the rest.

That's all for now. Take care and until next time...be well.

I use the black ADK-approved bear canister. Would not mess around with anything else. Never had issues with bears when using them. Why bother with a bag and risk your provisions?

Hmmm... should put my wife's left over meat loaf in one of those.

But that might constitute cruelty to animals
