An exhibitor at the bi annual Outdoor Retail trade show featured the “great bear escape” photo shoot, reminding us of the classic campfire song, “The Other Day, I Met a Bear”.
The other day I met a bear. Out in the woods, oh way out there.
He looked at me, I looked at him. He sized up me, I sized up him.
He said to me, Why don’t you run? I see you ain’t, Got any gun.
And so I ran, away from there. But right behind me was that bear.
And then I see ahead of me, a great big tree. Oh, glory be!
The lowest branch was ten feet up. I’d have to jump and trust my luck!
