"IT IS A BEAR!!!!"...Mille yelled out. "Are you serious?" asked Aaron, with a grin on his face. "YYYYES - Polar Bear - POLAR BEAR," Mille hollered frantically as she realized just how close it was. At that same moment Paul literally had his hand on the zipper of his tent's vestibule door. Recognizing true fear in Mille's voice, he unzipped and saw it - yes, right there, seemingly right next to Mille and Aaron's tent. Will basically pushed him out the door as he rushed while yelling, "Get out, get out; get out!"
