What would you do?

Just curious what you would do if you had a knock on your door in the middle of the night.

It was between friends...

I was once the "knocker" in this equation. I announced myself as I knocked, and the situation was during a Fiberglass Rally. I was acting as a messenger for a person who witnessed medical difficulties in their pet, and the person who's door I knocked on had enough experience to make the determination if it was an emergency requiring summoning a local vet.

I'd yell out, "Who is it?" I'd also peek out the window and hope it's not a bear.

If no window then may try installing one OR what about one of those little " peep hole"cylinders you can get at the hareware store, used for solid doors. There is a wide angle one that gives a great Panaramic view, one one could avoid NOT beening spotted.

Not answer. Of course, that assumes I would hear it. Not likely.

Pop up out of the escape hatch with my big metal flashlight. It's sufficiently high enough on the 5'er to stay out of harms way while I investigate the intruder.

Several years ago, escaped convicts killed a couple that were boondocking out west.

This might be a great reason to Not Boondock, to have a Dog that will Bark, to have a Gun. I don't like those peep holes because the person outside could shoot through the peep hole, drive a nail through the peep hole, etc.

Yea, fiberglass is pretty bullet proof otherwise.

4,280 pedestrians died in 2010 in the US after being hit by car . Does that sound like a good solid reason for not walking?

Carol, For me, there is no reason to put myself in harms way. Camping in a campground with a plethora of campers, security and lighting gives me a better feeling of security than I would get out in the boondocks alone. There is safety in numbers.

After asking the knocker if they are afraid of 2 big dogs, I'd open the door!

I'd holler out, "Unless that's opportunity knocking, go away!"

Falsetto two octaves up: "If that's you again, Butch, you better beat it cause I called 911 on you the last time you knocked!"
