That reminds me, I liked this recent article on, A WOMAN WHO LEFT SOCIETY TO LIVE WITH BEARS WEIGHS IN ON “MAN OR BEAR” and thought it might be up your street (or mountain track).

The “Man or Bear” debate recently went viral online, with women sharing their thoughts on whether they’d rather be stuck in the forest with a man or a bear. In this piece, long-term bicycle traveler Laura Killingbeck reflects on the question and adds her unique perspective to the conversation.
