Our food was in one of the popular Coleman 48 quart ice chests so prevalent for decades...
it is anything but airtight....
it was annihilated, and that strawberry jam was smeared all over everything....
the bacon packaging was destroyed, and all of the meat obviously disappeared.
the funny part for us, was the can(s) of Spam had been opened and the meat gone.
This was in 1972 before our kids arrived on the scene.
We were alerted by the Park Rangers to NOT sleep outside of any vehicle period.
Tents were not allowed to be set up at all.
So, we slept in the car. We were awakened by noises on the park table, the front of the car was pointed at the table, I hit the car horn and the bear disappeared instantly.
was sure glad the horn would work even though the Ignition switch was off.
I hit the Headlight switch to see what was happening, and the horn button all in one fast sequence.
In 20/20 hindsight, the food items should have been put back inside the car... we were sleeping in the front seats, and the 1972 Renault R16 SUV seats would recline all the way to the floor nearly.
