Redwine-We're in upstate NY and we've got TONS of bears, I haven't walked outside since last Thursday because I wasn't over it yet. But I'm heading back out today. I've been doing the Elliptical to replace all my walking, and I've been going even further than I do walking, but I just enjoy the exercise more when I'm outside in the fresh air.
Dee/Underscore/Lee-Yes, I was FREAKED OUT!
GCram-I agree, as long as they don't feel threatened, they are pretty nice. We have a restaurant out in the woods about 3 miles from our house that the Bear that lives out of their dumpster, is an attraction for the restaurant guests, That is one happiliy fed bear, I'll tell ya that!
Average-Yes, it is sad, its happening in more and more places...
