I have always have used ropes and biners to hoist stuff up out of reach of bears.
Cooler, bag of cookery equipt all go up.
Tank bag also goes up, because it contains or did recently contain snacks or toothpaste.
I am looking for good ideas to purge my panniers all the rope required for all this hoisting. One of my tank panniers is full of ropes, some for clothesline, some for tarp, but most for bears,coons and critters.
Show me your pics of hanging away from bears
This pic is not in a bear area, the main concern with this elevated cooler is to be out of reach of coons.
