When I don't code, I climb, cook, or cuddle my wife.

revised What are the proper precautions/protocols for storing food while car camping in an area with bears?
Changed the title of the question. The question refers specifically to travelling by car and hence the previous title was misleading.

Since this question asks about food storage while traveling by car and this question asks about food storage while hiking, I think it deserves to stay open.

comment Anchor without cordelette?
A climbing anchor has two areas to which a climber can clip him/herself. In most scenarios the auto-blocking belay device is clipped to the master-point, and the belayer is clipped to the shelve. Clipping to the shelve means taking one strand coming from each piece of protection. For the shelve to be a safe connection point, something has to be clipped to the master-point! Ask someone to show you in person to do this safely. When the second reaches the belay, he/she then clips to the master-point.

Welcome Peyton Fearday! It might be nice if you elaborated a bit on the exercises you suggest. I personally are not familiar with vertimax and box jumps.

comment When climbing should a carabiner ever be clipped to the tie-in loops, and should anything other than a carabiner ever attach to the belay loop?
You can buy harnesses with two belay loops. You should NEVER attach a carabiner to your tie in loops. Carabiners are designed to be loaded on two points only, loading the spine. Unless you use twin or double rope technique, your rope is not redundant, your harness is not, your belay device is not, your belay carabiner is not...
