Bonneville USA Worlds Fastest Bear 

Tracks of the StoneBear has a couple of different origins. One is as early as the scouts, from being a member of Cherokee 50 lodge given the name StoneBear. The other comes from life on the road as a Stand up Bear.

A while back traveling thru the west was listening to some ladies getting all frothed up about getting to see a bear. they were rushing out to go see a bear. "Oh we're going to go see a bear". Truth is ... they just thought they wanted to see a bear. Truth is... you don't want to see a bear. If you see a bear.... that bear has already seen you for a while and has been stalking YOU... for his dinner. A Bear can smell 1,000 times better than a human. & so it hit me... everybody wanted to see a bear....

well,... I learned from wheeler-dealer Dad from his trading/ hustling in the Marine Corps... we'll give them a bear.... for a price. I remember Dad saying "?You want that jeep where it sits, or do you want it delivered FOB? Doesn't matter to me; I'll give you a price for either." "?You want that Tank delivered? FOB? ,... it's as is!"

So I got a bear suit and went on the road as a stand up bear.

You want a picture of the bear $5

Picture w/ the bear $10

See the bear zydeco dance $15

Zydeco dance WITH the bear $20 (but bear gets to lead)

Drink a beer w/ the bear $25

Tap a Keg w/ the bear $100

It's a profit Deal.

*** & from a previous trip west... ran an entry for land speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats, Wendover Utah

World Record holder: The Worlds Fastest Bear 129.242 MPH
