Ah, very kind of you. I actually have my dad's old Garcia available to me, but it's a heavy beast. I think the Bearikade is 3/4 lbs or so lighter -- and the Bearikade holds more food. I'm planning a week long trip in the Sierra next month, so I wanted the extra capacity -- and I wanted to shed some weight. I thank you for your kind offer.
They are both in excellent condition and have only been used a hand full of times. I am looking to get $225 for the weekender and $275 for the expedition with free shipping. The weekender is currently listed for $288 and the expedition $349 new on the wild-ideas website with a two - four week back order. Let me know if you have any questions or need additional pics.
