Reporter asking about gas prices and camping habits

Hi. I am a reporter with a major media outlet working on a story about how higher gas prices are affecting - or not - people's camping plans for the summer.

I was wondering if any of you recently downsized to a fiberglass RV in order to save money on gas, or if the high gas prices have affected your camping plans for the summer.

Please email me directly at
In addition to your thoughts, I'll need your full name, city, age and occupation.

Thank you,
Karen Schwartz

Why would anyone send you their personal information without knowing who you really are.
I would never provide my information to those I don't know.

Provide your credentials.

Might I suggest you check out the web site I provided. and/or you can google Karen Schwartz and Associated Press. If you read almost any story - for instance, the one I wrote on James Nieuhes at:

Ski trail maps use artist's hand-painted panoramas - GreenwichTime

you will see that it provides his hometown, occupation and age. Similar data is provided for people quoted in most features, as it lets the reader know that the quotes are legitimate. There is nothing provided in a name, age and occupation that I, nor anyone else, could use to access any personal data.
