a new favorite

As some of you know, I prefer isolated camping spots. Iíve come across quite a few since I started with this lifestyle and now there is a new one on my favorites list. I came across this spot at the end of a double-track in Utahís rim country. It took some time to get turned around in there and I had to break out my straw broom to cover most of my tire tracks in the sand (the old leave no trace). I have some more photos on my blogís October entry. While out mountain biking or running during the two weeks I was there, the closest camper I saw was two miles back along the road. Not bad. I do like solitude. Well, back to camp.

Looks pretty good. I like those kinds of spots too! Out of curiosity, what elevation was that?

I'm betting the only safety/security issues have to do with the occasional roaming critter.

Sorry for my slow response but I only have web access when go into a town for supplies. So far I havenít had any safety/security problems. Maybe itís just good karma. I try to camp off a spur road, out of sight of a main forest road; stealth camping. I need to be out in Nature so campgrounds donít work for me. There are some little things I do about the issue. Donít know if they are effective or not.

i am glad to hear you've not had any problems...i guess i was most worried about being isolated....and being vulnerable. however, since that has not been an issue, terrific!! and keep doing whatever you are doing to stay safe!!

Perhaps it has something to do with my gender (although I'm a measly 5'8" and no muscle to speak of), but I do not equate isolation with vulnerability. If no one else is around to see me camping, there's no one to do me harm either.

But even if they see me and in the unlikely off-chance they wish me harm, there's the .45 by the bed or the .32 in the pocket. Sometimes bear spray on the belt too. Why feel vulnerable unnecessarily? The right tool for the right job, that's all it takes. While caution is prudent, needless fear can rob us of some good experiences.
