1066. Wake-up Call

Early morning
awakening...bear paws
on the tent.

Link with 1065: Collapsible.

[On our first camping trip in the mountains after we got married we had a frightening bear experience. That night we were abruptly awakened shortly before dawn. It was the sound of a bear putting his paws against the tent. The tent shook but it luckily held up. I instinctively yelled out a roar as loud as I could and fortunately it scared off the bear. We, however, remained anxious until we had packed up and moved on. I think that morning we had skipped making breakfast.]

nice story
i've never had anything as worrying as bears - but even inquisitive cattle can make a good alarm clock :)

Floots: Me too, I wouldn't be happy waking up to the horns of a bull (or a cow for that matter).

Andrew: That's for sure.

Pamela: Right...I'm surprised my wife was able to continue on with our trip, and even to go back camping the following year.

John: It is one wake-up call I would not look forward to getting again. :-)

Borut: Ho, ho! Well done. :-)

GZ: And well-founded, every so often you hear of bear encounters that do not end so happily.
