I've never seen one either, except from a car back when we had public dumps everywhere. I suspect that they must smell me coming, because we are supposed to have one of them every 2 square miles. On the Fundy Footpath the distances are marked every kilometer, so every 2 kilometers I politely knock before I enter. Thus far no bear has answered, but I go right on in and make myself at home anyway. I bring my own oatmeal. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
