    Hammocks are tortillas for our grizzly bears.

    Taco shells are tortillas. Easy to make. A tent could be a tamale with a bunch of burritos inside.
    Quite clear now that pepper/bear spray alerts the bears to people and food = hot sauce.

    For more information on knot techniques for some of the knots described here the following may be useful.

    Animated knots app available for Android or iOS

    A climbing book called The complete guide to rope techniques by Nigel Shepherd. This has some useful information on how to tie tape knots and how to tie onto carabinas.

    There's also that Ashley book of you lots but is not cheap and some of the animated tutorials are easier to follow.
