I'd be one to camp pretty much the whole way, so curious on bears, spray, ... Thanks for sharing this with all of us!

No - never had any problems with wildlife at all.
I had thought of buying bear spray when I got to Canada, but didn't get around to it.
Several places I camped, I could hear coyotes at night, and in Tok the coyotes quit, and I heard a wolf howling in the distance. It was awesome, but my iphone speaker just couldn't pick it up very well.
