Getting the gear right

Bear-viewing-gearTourists have a lot of questions, understandably so—many people are getting on a small floatplane for the first time, going on a wild and scenic flight to remote destinations they have never been before. But today we had to call in a translator for an onslaught of questions about what to take bear viewing. Just when we thought we had covered just about every item that could be packed and every eventuality, things got technical. It had been established that bear viewers should wear comfortable walking or hiking shoes, but apparently the EXACT height needed to be known. Luckily, we were able to establish, by sorting through many examples of shoes that the customer packed into the office, how high bear viewing footwear should be, give or take one centimeter.
