New to Alaska beginning of last year. Overall quite experienced outdoors, a bit lacking in the solo backpacking department. Physically and mentally in good shape. Plan on doing the RL460(upper Eagle River black bear) and spending 5-7 nights way back. Wife is making me take a sat phone. Camping solo in bear territory is a bit intimidating, but by no means am I "scared". My wife on the other hand is not overly happy with me. When I told her that I am way more worried about falling off the side of a mountain than being attacked by a bear she failed to see the humor.... haha.
So, any really good advice for camping solo? Who has done it, experiences, good, bad, and ugly? Any good advice on the ER hunt itself? I plan on getting a long ways back, and doing a hell of a lot of glassing and walking. Thanks in advance!
