Two RV Gypsies: Full-Time RVers

Alaska Bush floatplane adventure
(page 2 of 3) and a surprise....
The two RV Gypsies were dropped off at a dock on another lake while the pilot flew back for John and Tina. Fish Lake was too small for the floatplane to take-off from with the weight of four passengers and Jason the pilot. The second lake is bigger and the floatplane can take off from there with everyone on board.

The two RV Gypsies were all alone on a dock with a closed-up cabin at the end of the dock. They decided to take a closer look at the cabin while waiting for the pilot to return with John and Tina.

The cabin was closed up tightly but two beautiful chairs hung from the porch roof along with two kayaks.

WOW
On the porch it appeared that beer cans were torn out of a plastic bag and clawed open. The flip-top lid of the cans were NOT opened. Upon further research, the two RV Gypsies found bear footprints and a trampled path leading from the porch into the woods. SCARY

Now if a bear drank this beer, the two RV Gypsies do not want to meet that drunk beer in the woods! No thank you! And guess what - there was no place for the two RV Gypsies to escape to should a bear appear. Drunk bear or sober bear, it really would not matter. There was nowhere to go for safety and the two RV Gypsies were totally alone in the middle of nowhere, with nobody else around, no cell service, and no way to get help if needed.

Native Alaskans told the two RV Gypsies to back away from grizzly bears, wave their arms and look big, but as seen in the below photos, the only place to back up to would be the end of the dock. It wouldn't help to jump into the lake because bears can swim too. There were a couple of cabins on the other side of the lake, but they were empty too, and even if they were not, they could not cross the lake to be of any help. So if a bear did come back to this cabin, there would be no place for the two RV Gypsies to go, and no one around to help them.

Above - is Karen Duquette giving a fun "thumbs-up" sign or a hitch-hiking sign? - LOL
 
The small dots that are barely visible in the photo below on the left are tiny bugs swarming all over by the dock.
