Looking over this question again...

Are we tent camping in bear country?

Anywhere near correctional facilities? (I ask because I do and have camped during prisoner escapes... unsettling at best...)

Are we camping in a 5th wheel or other hard sided camper?

Are we backpacking into the waaaaay back country?

Good discussions all.

 


I guess it would be all of the above.  But chiefly tent camping “waaaaay back” into the country with bear, cougar, illegal aliens, smugglers, poachers, Bigfoot/Fouke Monster/Skunk Ape, toothless guys that want other men to squeal like a pig; via foot, horseback, 4 wheeler or jeep/pickup.

Sorry but my idea of camping out is a Holiday Inn Express and really don't need a fire arm there
Bunk

Mrs Marvel still thinks a Holiday Inn is pretty nice....
but a Motel 6 - THAT's camping! bring the UV light to check for bedbugs  :P

Doug,
Here in the Deep South we have all the beasties you mention in your last post. Plus a few that you may not expect to find in other parts of North America.
This is my reason for posting # 7, (I believe) a Shotgun, various ammo and a large cal. revolver. I assumed all camping was to be rather primitive.

My best,
