she told us stories of the need to go berry picking in pairs, apparently bears wont bother you if you are talking back and forth.
she gave us the scoop on what to do if you see a mountain lion (raise your arms up as high as you can and walk backwards away from it maintaining eye contact)
and gave us the age old line the animals are more scared of you than you are of them, i guess this does not apply to a mountain lion, never run from a mountain lion.
sounds like a super fun vacation (did i mention the part about -24 degree nights) but please, please dont ever invite me to join you in rural Montana. you can bet your boohiney that the answer will be a firm but polite "No Thank You".
