Hello Campers! I'm camping in the White Mountains (near Mt. Washington) next week and am pretty excited. Most of my camping experience has been at private, busy-type campgrounds. While I'm looking forward to a smaller, more "rugged" campsite, I'm also worrying about bears at camp. Like, waking up at 3:00 am, thinking "BEARS!!!" type worried.
We'll keep our cooler, packs, and cooking supplies in the trunk of the car - is there anything else I can do that will help discourage bears? Do I need to re-wash my bedding with a scentless detergent? Should we rethink the shrimp boil foil packs? Will a camp toilet (Cleanwaste Go Anywhere) attract bears? Should we put out a jar of ammonia to dissuade them? Am I being paranoid?
Any advice, or reality check, would be much appreciated!
