HUUUUZAAAAH Finally! Something ken likes in one of my post!! even if it wasnt meant as a joke~

I would carry a few spray cans of Bear Repellent, a perfectly reasonable thing to have while travelling/camping across the top of the country.
Its stronger than pepper spray...

That stuff will knock an animalistic human down fast!

I don't keep my helmet in the trunk, too much crap in there that I have to have access to quickly...

so, I use Mr. JJ's ( John Johnson, er uh, Jobe05 ) neat little elastic straps to hold it down to the top of the trailer. On my trip home from Atlanta, I was parking a lot in open areas. I just threw a red T-shirt across the top of the helmet, placed the elastic band strap across that, and no one even gave the rig a 2nd look.

I travel to national parks all the time and I bring my .38 with me in a case, packed in my bindle bag of clothes and misc camping stuff. At night, I bring that gun case into my tent and in all my years I have never had a problem with carrying in and on national forest service, national parks or state parks. I don't advertise it, I just bring it along.

Going into Canada with one is not going to work. If I was traveling through Canada, I would leave the gun at home and buy an extra can of bear spray.

This next week, I will be traveling through several national parks in Utah and Colorado and that same gun will be with my girl friend and I, camping all the way.

We also have bear spray at the ready and that would always be my first choice of defense. After the can runs empty and there still is a problem..... then the .38 would be a good backup.

Then again, I am a 62 year old balding fat guy who doesn't look like anyone who is looking for trouble.

If you want to jump on me, go ahead. But consider this . . . I'm still here and no shots were fired.

I'm still here, too. Unfortunately, more than a few shots were fired along the way. I don't travel and live with a firearm on me to protect myself. I'm good to go at any time. It's to protect other people, most importantly my family, and then friends and innocents. When motorcycling, I like to carry a heavy weapon, particularly in the West. A .38 will only piss off a grizzly bear. A .45 Automatic Colt Pistol with one in the chamber and 10 rounds behind it, plus another 10 round mag, will drop anything that lives on this continent.

And, whether the threat is 4-legged or 2-legged, the first round would most likely be fired into the ground in front of them. I've never had any interest in killing any living being(well, other than those I intended to eat.) Sometimes, when you're young in particular, you allow yourself to be induced into such situations. And, you pay the consequences for the rest of your life.

Guns are like parachutes(someone said) You only need it once and if you dont have it you probably wont need one again.

Guns are allowed in all federal parks, just not in a building located in federal parks.
Im not "dying" to bring it with me but I prefer so.

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

Make sure you buy it in CDN since is illegal to just bring it across the border, will be confiscated.

In my case I can ship it to myself in Detroit but dont know what to do after that. Ill check out a few bus stations on line and ask a few gun shops or maybe I just leave it home.
If you totally (100%) disassemble the weapon and mark each part separately you can legally ship the item as "Gun Parts - Assorted" and not pay the premium you would otherwise.

If allowed by local statutes and you are a licensed CCW carrier in the state within which the National Park is located it is 100% legal to carry it into the park in accordance with a law signed by Obama in 2010. You are NOT allowed to conceal carry in any federal buildings within the park however.

I'm glad of this because a couple of years ago i rode my bike into Yellowstone and was approached by a wild animal when i was blocked in by vehicles on the road. I'm glad I had my Glock with me "just in case" but luckily I didn't need it this time. However, you only need one when you need one. If you need one and don't have one you will probably never need one again.

Or in a state that reciprocates with the state where the park is.
