^ I loaned my Garcia to my next-door neighbor for his first big "backpack/camping" trip out to Sand Point last summer. It made the difference between him going and not going - loaners from the WIC were in short supply, and PA was too far to drive.

Contra-wise, properly setting an ursack really only requires one skill, tying a figure eight knot. That can be learned in just a few minutes. And even if a person forgets, there is a little tag in the Ursack which illustrates how to tie it.
To me what's difficult about the Ursack is finding a tree or limb of the right diameter at the right height above the ground. Harder to come by than a hangable high limb IME. The Ursack's cinch rope is too short to go around a big tree or limb, and all too often the right size is found just a bit too high to make tying that easy figure eight easy. I like the Ursack in the scrub zone just below treeline.
Regardless of what method one uses, proper food storage is something that is only going to become even more important in the coming years.
Indeed. One thing all places with problem animals have in common is they used to have no problem animals.
