There's nothing more ferocious than a mother bear in defense of its cubs, unless it's an old Grandmotherbear in defense of her grandcubs!

Life member Florida Trail Association, backpacker, canoe camper, 1 troop trip to canoe the Okefenokee Swamp 1996- 4 troop trips to BSA Northern Tier High Adventure base(Ely MN BWCA 1997, Bisset Manitoba 1998, Atikokan NW Ontario 1999 and 2006. 16 years assistant scoutmaster/assistant district commissioner. Woodbadge trained and awarded District Award of Merit. Gardener x 30 years, Hospice nurse and educator x24 years. Retired 6/2014 due to chronic pain. Looking forward to getting back into camping with this Lil Snoozy RV. It's totally new to me (rving), so please be patient!

My spouse SWEARS he will be accompanying me, so we'll have to see. He's not thrilled about camping and since 2007 he's only accompanied me for 1 week of the monthlong camping trip I took with the 8 and 13 yr old grandkids- that was the trip where I took a month's LOA from my job, rented a van, bought a tent bigger than my first apartment(the Tent Mahal) and then traveled north with the spring. We flew him back out of Atlanta and we proceeded to Mammoth Cave, KY Horse Park, Kennywood Amusement Park in Pittsburgh and Niagara Falls. The other time was our trip to Boston when we stayed in a KOA with the Tent Mahal to save money.

Oh yes, we will be accompanied by cats- ONE of whom was raised by my spouse from a mouse sized baby abandoned in our yard, and thinks he's a person. 1 is a rescue from our niece, and 1 was a rescue from US27- falling from the underneath of a tractortrailer as a small kitten. The latest was a tuxedo kitten left at our house by a burglar who broke in while I was in the bathroom. We're the only folks in the world who had someone break in to leave us something.
