What a story of survival. Always carry bear spray when traveling in outdoor country where bears are known especially when cubs are around. To be effective, you need to let the bear approach you within 15' before you spray. This will literally create a wall that the bears won't penetrate. I have used it once and it is like being sprayed by mace. Hopefully, you will never have this up close experience.
