I did a 5 wilderness camp/ride on my atv last year. It was awesome! We rode 450 miles and had a new camp set up every night. We couldn't pack much on the quads so we was really roughing it...lol
Well good luck to you it sure it a lot of fun.

Sounds like a place you shouldn't be in then.

Also heed any bear warning signs you may come across. Such as this one:

:cool: Take a little food and a lotta woman !!

Take a decent firearm and ammo and as a precaution to any four legged danger, have a spray can of ORTHO/ACE WASP-HORNET SPRAY

That'll temporary blind ANYTHING at 20' and it has a very strong/substancial stream flow--works GOOD

I also have my S&W 1911--just in case, but I haven't had to use it while camping !!

LOLOLOLOL...

I was going to say some sort of Personal Defense Gun.

Sign also could have said,,

1." You cant out run a Bear,, but you might be able to our run your Friend".

2. " Only camp with fat out of shape friends ".

Weren't any of you people in the Boy Scouts? Ever do any minimalist camping? You don't need a chainsaw to go camping. You don't need a gun. You don't need to worry about bears in New Hampshire.

I used to work with Outward Bound, and we worked really hard to get people to the point of being able to spend a night in the woods without it being a "big thing." I'm not suggesting that you go with what's in your pockets (although I've done that a lot, and it's a fun challenge). But relax. In this day and age it's hard to get a true wilderness experience. Partly because people with chainsaws cut a cord or two of wood for a campfire.

I'd also suggest that it's possible to walk more than a 100 yards from your Jeep. I know, that's shocking. But it makes for a better wilderness experience.

Yes. Black bears are capable of killing people, but it is an extremely rare occurrence. The last time someone was killed by a black bear in New Hampshire was 1784.

X2

when i go camping, all my gear fits in my hiking pack. ive lived for a week at a time out of that pack. might weigh 30-40 pounds at most for those trips. and most of that weight is food and water.

all you really need is a tent, sleeping bag(or blanket, depending on the weather) camping stove, a hatchet, small knife, water, food, and cloths that you can layer.
if you are taking the jeep, then some basic tools might be a good idea, but i would have those in there any ways. never know when you might need them whether you are out in the woods, or in the middle of the city.

oh, always cary a first aid kit, that is a must.

OK the chainsaw was meant to be a joke. seriously. i could survive on next to nothing but food and water.
the reason i asked the original question is for the wife. she never been "wilderness camping" we always had a travel trailer. i know boring.
heck if were me and the dog, i'de sleep in the back of the jeep.

BanditDarvel 09-08-2010 12:48 PM

There are more black bear attacks then grizzly attacks.

A chainsaw came in handy for some friends of mine on a recent trail run in the Sierras. Some Canadians will tell you it's an essential part of their wheeling gear.

bobjenkins 09-08-2010 12:50 PM

bring a gun too for the bears and any streakers you might see

well in that case you will need an 8 man tent with blowup air matress, portable toilet, shower, and if you can manage it a power inverter for the hairdryer and blender!
