SHOUT OUT, and THANK YOU, to @yakimaracks
We truly believe that three main things saved our lives, when the grizzly bear woke us up 9/26/18, in WY... the YAKIMA TENT BEING 7 FEET OFF THE GROUND, UDAP BEAR SPRAY, and the GRACE OF GOD! If the tent were on the ground, we probably would have been bear ‘takeout.’ And, THANK GOD M grabbed the bear spray when he did, and the bear didn’t like it!
The most terrifying experience we’ve ever been through... The view of the bear under the moonlight was INCREDIBLE... the massive head in our face, the height when standing on its hind legs, the ears, long boxy nose, the claws, etc...AN AMAZING FRIGHTENING SITE!
We can say with certainty, this experience has changed our outlook on safety, in many ways. In the past, we’ve taken for granted there are predators, and haven’t always been ready to react. It’s so easy to get lost in the beauty that surrounds us, and complacent with our steps, not thinking of the dangers around us. We’ve also learned there’s no way of knowing how we’ll truly act in any situation, until it happens! It happened SO DANG FAST!
This ‘grizzly’ day... we had a plan, we were prepared to react, we respected the wilderness, all while enjoying everything the wilderness had to offer... The views were incredible, we had an amazing trip, we enjoyed every minute, (not the grizzly moment, of course), and the plan worked! WE’RE ALIVE! Traumatized, but ALIVE! THANK GOD!
Bottom line... Udap Bear Spray is a LIFE SAVER, and bear spray is our first choice for protection. *BE BEAR AWARE! Carry bear spray with you while you enjoy the outdoors! Know how to use it! Practice using it! Have a plan! Be ready to react! (In the future, everyone I camp with will know exactly how to use it!)
*Yakima Tents are AMAZING! Definitely recommend if you’re an outdoor lover! *THE WILDERNESS IS AN AMAZING PLACE! I’LL CONTINUE TO ENJOY, SHARE, RESPECT, AND LOVE ALL IT HAS TO OFFER!
