I have been reading a couple of RV "vagabonding" websites and have become fascinated by the lifestyle. One is: rvsue and her canine crew | Living on less and enjoying life more and the other I just started reading this week: Cheaprvliving.com and I really enjoy them. Both are choke full of commonsense advice and wisdom. I don't think you are safe anywhere anymore so why bother over-thinking the whole thing. We moved to a new neighborhood in Nov and on Thanksgiving, 2 pitbulls got out of their pen and came after my dogs but, as they charged toward us, I didn't know what they would do. I was lucky to have my "Knuckle Blaster" by Zap with me and although I could not make good contact, I was able to discourage them with it each time they tried to grab one of my dogs. Now, I had to make the choice on whether to ever go out for a walk again with my dogs but this was not a good experience but still I handled it. I did purchase a Zap baton with 4 hot spots which I think would have made the situation go a little better. Dog bites are very frequent here as I was talking to a policemen in the wee hours of the morning about a barking dog. I love these ZAP products. I got a free pepper spray but it is still wrapped. I am angry enough to harm someone because I am so tired of the people that are limiting our freedom to live our lives. My dogs are pretty good at determining who we do and don't want to visit with. I was in the military years and years ago and when I look back to traveling by myself and just going places in bigger cities (I grew up in a town of 2,000 as a shy child), well, I kept my guardian angel hopping! I am learning that "what ifs" will consume you and take your life away. At 58, I am asking myself every day what it is that I want to spend the rest of my time doing and I am sure what I am doing now isn't it. I appreciate quality over quantity any day. So, maybe I want to be an RVing vagabond. I love pretty places and meeting lots of different types of people. Freedom.

Go for it Cathy, life is short!

Deryk, I think it took a whole lot of guts to leave your life as you knew it and go to the place called "Ellis Island" to start anew... you can be proud.

I camp alone, beause my hubby does not like camping.

So I camp in safer areas, have my cellphone on me, and my hornet spray, lock my door at night, and just go with the statistics that more people are going to wind up being 'safe' than not.


I suppose could just stay safely at home, but I like camping much better!!

It's just called common sense Pam. Safety at home is about the same as safety on the road. I'm just as careful at home as I am on the road.

I do believe I read somewhere that 50% of people die at home and another 25% die within 20 miles of home... so, I figure if I'm at LEAST 100 miles from home I'll live longer! GO, DO... MAKE MEMORIES!

How funny Donna! They also say laughter is the best medicine and you just gave me a good dose, so you've helped my longevity as well. Happy trails to you and a long life!

Add to that according to the National Automobile Dealers Association, motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of work-related fatalities in the United States.

So Donna not only do we need to stay at least 100 miles from home but everyone needs to retire early

Like everything in life, take it easy, use a little common sense and things will work out exactly the way they are going to work out.

RVing is a minimalst life style, particularly in a small fiberglass trailer. To me this means less stress which equates to the possibility of a longer life.

Go slow, see much, be stimulated by every day and share your smile.

I love the turn this thread has taken. Accentuate the positive.......don't dwell on the 'might' happen. Camping is about relaxing and enjoying nature and the company of like-minded friends. What could be better?!

Well, lets be honest, the reaper will come for us 1 day... no point in dwelling on it. Im very solitary by nature and started going to NYC at 16, alone. I just follow the same strategy I did then I hold myself upright, I have a postive mental attitude, Be Self Assured, Be Confident.

Honestly, the criminal element looks for an easy mark, someone who looks timid and afraid because they are not as likely to resist. Don't be that person...ever!

There is so much amazing things to see and do, and sitting home afraid is boreing. Don't take obvious risks and if your gut tells ya something(besides FEED ME lol) listen to it.

And have fun kids!
