FR: Did you get the phone call?
Me: What call?
FR: There was a bear spotted in the area last week and we have been calling to let people know.
FR: It is your choice to stay here but we have to warn you. I don't think he is still in the area. But he was in the camp across the road last weekend. Do you want to move?
Me: (Looking around. Talking to dad. Thinking about the odds that the bear is still around) We'll stay.
FR: Okay. I really think it has left the area. You should be fine.
Mom: I am scared to death of bears.
Me: (Hands mom my pepper spray) Keep this with you if you want.
Mom: I don't think I would be able to use it. I would be too scared.
Me: Don't worry. You have the pepper spray and Dad and I have our guns. You'll be okay.
There were no bears....at least not last weekend...that we saw anyway.
