Bear Bagging It On The AT

Usually the last thing that needs to be done at night before going to sleep is hanging the "bear bags". To discourage bears, mice, rodents, ants, and other pesky varmints from visiting the camping area it's recommended that all food & snacks be hung in a tree at least 200 feet away from camp 10 feet above the ground and 5 feet away from the trunk of the tree. Laurie got her first attempt at taking on this task. I figured it would take her several tries (like it does for me - LOL!). She nailed it on her first toss!!
