We cook outside at least 3 time a week in the summer. More if I’m not working the weekend. When I’m on vacation we only cook outside. We are also good to go in the winter probably 2 times a week.

Well at average I grill out 3 to 4 times a week. The only thing that stops me for now is rain , but that is gonna change going to build a cook houe for myself in the back yard big enough to accomodate my gas grill , 55 gallon drum smoker , and turkey frier with room for tables, chairs, firewood and of course a frig for food storage and a spot for all my tools. Once thats done I wil pick up the pace .

Hey. I've just been on vacation-- a raod trip over to the Yukon Territory. We rolled back home late last night. I was fishin at a remote lake (float plane access only) in the Yukon with no electricity or internet access. Then we went to Dawson City, Yukon and between the dance hall girls and gambling didn't have time to run down internet access. I'll post the grizzley bear story later when I get things caught up here at home.

My wife and I have been using this same outfitter in the Yukon for 12 years. He takes off with his float plane from Whitehorse and drops us off at a lake with a cabin and boats/motors and then picks us up a week later. Each lake has only one cabin.

This year he explained that a grizzly bear had broken into 4 of his 8 cabins and besides breaking out the windows it had thrashed the propane refrigerator in the 4 cabins. Each frig costs $1500. Knowing that I always brought a rifle, he said "If the bear comes while you're here, kill it." My response was "What do you want me to do with the carcass?"

We didn't see the bear for the first 6 days. On the morning of the last day there was a fresh pile of bear crap 6 feet from the front door of the cabin but no bear to be seen. The plane that came in to pick us up brought in 2 guys from California. We were all down on the dock dealing with loading with loading and unloading the float plane. We got their gear unloaded and most of mine put into the plane when someone said "There's a bear at the cabin!" I looked up to see a bear stand up and rip the screen off one of the windows. We hollered at the bear and by the time I got my rifle out and loaded it had split into the woods. I asked the 2 guys from California if they brought a firearm to which they both sadly shook their heads "no". Having missed the opportunity to kill the bear, there was nothing further to do but load up the plane and fly out. I'll never forget the look on the faces of the 2 guys. I haven't heard back from the outfitter as to whether they stayed or had him fly them back to Whitehorse. Bet they didn't sleep soundly. Wish the bear would have showed up at another time when I could have solved the outfitter's problem. He would have been forever grateful.
