In response to the increase in Alaska bear activity, here is a great public service announcement on when to call 9-1-1 and additional steps to be bear aware: https://local.nixle.com/alert/6027597/?sub_id=2552540

Dear GearFlogger,

I'm responding to your most recent email about Bear Safety, a subject of much debate. I've talked to professional guides in the Canadian Rockies and I've read a few authoritative books that support your advice. I thought you might want to recommend this book about bears and bear safety. It's a really good read and very educational.

Thanks for considering,

Vincent Palmieri
