READ: Please don’t run from bears or push your slower friends down in attempts of saving yourself.
As a follow-up to our previous post, if you come upon a stationary bear, move away slowly and sideways; this allows you to keep an eye on the bear and avoid tripping. Moving sideways is also non-threatening to bears. Do NOT run, but if the bear follows, stop and hold your ground. Bears can run as fast as a racehorse both uphill and down. Like dogs, they will chase ﬂeeing animals. Do NOT climb a tree. Both grizzlies and black bears can climb trees.
Stay calm and remember that most bears do not want to attack you; they usually just want to be left alone. Don’t we all sometimes
Identify yourself by making noise so the bear knows you are a human and not a prey animal. Help the bear recognize you as a human. It may come closer or stand on its hind legs to get a better look or smell. A standing bear is usually curious, not threatening.
Find more tips at nps.gov and search “bears.” We apologize to any “friends” who were brought on a hike as the “bait” or were sacrificed to save the group. You will be missed.

Whew! That was a long break... what a year we’ve had. Multiple international trips. 🇮🇹 🇮🇶 Vehicle sales and vehicle acquisitions. Leaving the RV life. Getting into a house, yes... a real house and settling into our new life in Boone. We’re returning to the overland world with a new style. There are plans in the works for this TRD Off-Road Tacoma and we’ll be using @ashevillevehicleoutfitters for many of the additions. First on the agenda is an Alu-Cab Expedition Canopy. Stay tuned in the coming weeks to keep up to date with our build and to see where we’re going in 2020!
If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be
We can’t answer that question for you, but we can tell you what kind of trees #CCCTahoe Corpsmembers recently planted near the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. These are sugar pine trees. And a team from UC Davis hope they’ll not just grow, but help our forests survive drought and beetle infestation.
Tahoe Corpsmembers helped with the planting. You can read all about the scientist’s work in the Los Angeles Times and via UC Davis. 📰 LA Times: https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-11-18/sierra-trees-climate-change-adaptation-lake-tahoe
