Teachin' 'em?

So, Aaron...

What have they learned so far, how to rivet or how to cut aluminum sheeting?

You know what, funny you should mention a bear...my neighbor showed me a pic of what a bear did to an Airstream back in the early 70s up in Alaska. The Airstream took one heck of a beating...I myself was totally shocked at how far the bear could actually penetrate the inner sheetmetal. It was like one of us tearing into an aluminum can.....

I'll have to get a scan of that pic someday. You all will totally freak out if you saw that....made me feel less safe inside than I once thought!

Bear proof

In case of bear attack electrify the exterior of the trailer with a tazer gun.

In theory would the occupants not be affected because the bear would be grounded and get zapped?

mouse proofer

Guess that is one way to mouse proof!!!more interesting than Bounce sheets and probably more effective, too!

Well, if you had a CCD and had your hand on the inner skin when the bear was trying to get in, sure...the non-CCDs have either a rubber type material or a cloth one, so even if you rested your hand and fired to the wall, you'd most likely get nothing...then again...maybe wouldn't shock the bear either on the outside due to the insulation between the skin on the non-CCDs.

I'd also wonder what that might do to some of the electronics that work of the 12V neg ground.

Well, I say the heck with tazers and I'll take my chances with a 12 guage or .454 etc. Electrify that, Mr. Bear.
