Hi Folks. First please may I make it clear I am not camping at Yosemite. I am knowledgeable about bears when it comes to tent camping. (No food in tent, no ice chests left outside, no clothes you've been bar-b-q-ing in near sleeping quarters etc.)
That brings me to my point. All the food storage advice and info on how scented items attract bears leads me to a question...
I recently bought a Four Wheel pop up camper. It's hard sided except for the top couple of feet or so when popped up. Does anyone have any info or advice about cooking in the camper in bear country? It seems to me that bears could still be attracted to the food scent while I'm sleeping inside the camper. I've seen the Yosemite videos at the lodge on the bears breaking into cars and opening the doors like they're nothing.
It would seem to me that a pop up camper might be fair game to a bear if they smell food inside?? Please advise if you have knowledge on this issue. With all due respect to all the fine posts on this site, I'm not looking for guesses or speculation, but some knowledgeable feed back.
