USA Travel Stories
Florida: Key West/hemingway Home & Museum Ernest Hemingway seems to haunt every part of laid-back Key West. Here, at the literal end of the road, everyone has a story about him.

For Bear's Eyes, Not Yours Pepper spray in small, fire extinguisher type cannisters is widely touted as non-lethal protection against the slight chance of a bear attack. It has been useful in curbing interest from curious bears, and driven off a few during a mauling. However, there have been no reports of it actually stopping a serious charge. One very large threat, is not from bears but from the spray cannister. Should it... Read more >>>
