    Nope, I cannot. We clean it after every trip though.

    As I said, I'm not trying to change what you do. But I'm not going to forgo features of my own camper and diminish my own camping experience (and that of my family) out of fear. I've been camping for decades and never had any issues.

    My comment was for me. I don't care what someone else does. I don't follow that practice out of fear just common sense. Plus I don't like sleeping in a kitchen.

    Common sense to me means that if it's pouring rain outside we're still going to cook dinner, and if we're playing a board game inside we might snack on some chips. But everyone's different. If you see a news story where I'm eaten by a bear you can say I told you so ;)

    Like I said, I was speaking for my self. The first words I ever heard about camping was "No food in the tent" I don't break that. Anyone else can do as they please.

    Do not eat pizza on the right or left coast and do not eat seafood in the midwest.

    Go back to bed. They know what they are looking for.
