Hello, this is an awesome topic. I am trying to do pretty much the same thing with the pacific coast route in 3 weeks. I will have some issues in Washington finding local food, but after that I will be OK. What I am going to do is put all my food in a bear vault, and tie that on my rear rack. I know it weighs a couple of pounds, but I see some real benefits: I don't have to worry about ANY animals, ever. I won't have squirels chewing my panniers, or chipmonks digging through a bag of rice. Also, once everything is inside, it won't get tossed around and end up with a tool kit that was in the same pannier on top of my apples. I have also toured with a BOB trailer and my bear vault fit so perfectly it seems it was made to go there. If you are still in Bozeman, that is where I am as well and if you have any other questions, please ask. I have done about 4000 miles of touring, so I mught be able to help.
