RV Parks and bombs.

Here's an article I just read about finding an RV (motor home) with bombs and bomb making materials. This kind of scary given how close RV Parks put rigs together.
Here's the article.

All I can say is read the article before you make intelligent comments. I just fixed the link.

That was kind of scary, they said he was giving away money the day before, he sure had a lot of bombs!

If you are going to worry about having somebody with mental health issues camped beside you, you will never leave home. And then you can worry about your neighbours. Not sure why this incident is such a concern. Just stay out of Arizona.

Good advice. Since you can't stop the crazies , it is best to avoid them. The problem is my list of states to avoid is getting really long.

I think the best way to avoid these kind of crazies is to avoid RV Parks. Look at how close the sites to each other. That's a red flag to me. If you're going to try and avoid crazies by avoiding States you might as well stay home.
My concern is with the closeness of the sites and the RVs including our trailers to each other. A fire in one can spread quite rapidly to the next and the next etc. etc. or bomb going off can destroy several at once.

It's nothing to get really excited, but just be aware.

I guess I'm more likely to be worried about the firearms in the vehicles next to me than any bomb materials. I work hard not to antagonize my neighbors! Just my two cents...

.
Back to propane tanks and batteries.
Of course there's always the potential for being crushed by somebody opening their slides.

Let see how many decades have I been camping, how many times have I even heard of a bomber with explosives camping near me? This story makes 1 and.... oh that's it.


Risk is a function of probability and potential. So yes a bomb in a camper in a tight packed campground has a lot of "potential" to do harm but he probability that one will be there is really really slim. Now people that seem just a bit "off" are a bit more common in my estimation.

I try to stay home as much as I can. But the times I do have to go to the store i go at night when there's no one around. I just can't stand how stupid everyone is.
