Sounds like your wife is an excellent companion.
There are also lots of bears. Remember for bear watching, always stand behind someone who is out of shape and runs very slowly. You don't have to worry about bears getting through the screens because they don't careóone swipe and you didn't have to worry about screens anymore. Barely seriously, watch where you leave the door open. Bears, who have poor eyesight, just walk through screens and unlike other visitors, you don't have to serve them anything. They'll help themselves.
Bears can tear off car doors or the side of an Airstream (there was a photo of the latter posted on the Forum some years ago). They have an excellent sense of smell and can smell food miles away. We always brought bear spray (it is allowed at the Canadian border), but never had to use it. Bears are opportunists and don't want to work too hard so the bear who tore the skin off the side of an Airstream found the back of a cabinet and gave up.
