Bear Bags and Construction Crews
When camping, it’s a common practice to consolidate all your food in a bag and suspend it overnight high up in a tree (preferably away from your campsite). You do this in part to keep the bears from stealing your food while you sleep.

This past week, construction has continued on the Charles Creek Bridge in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. With some amusement, Ryan and I noted a similar practice being employed. Each evening the crew consolidates their supplies and tools in a trailer. Then they hoist it high above the ground with a crane. Only this time, they are trying to thwart the human thieves. : )
