What is your worst fear of being "out" in the wilds?
I love to camp.I love it year round.
And I have found that my fears change with the seasons.
I love to go camping in all seasons, and I really sat down one day to sort out my fears.
Love to tent but now liking my camper.
This is my biggest time of year to fear bears,at least for me,in my mind.
They are coming out of winters deep sleep,they got young to feed,,and have come around my camp many times over the years,but no problems at all then just the surprise to see them.
I keep a clean camp,but fire smells seem to bring them in.
A few yells and shouts and they are gone.
My biggest fear of the year comes around July and August.
Once again the night is full of sounds.
The fear not comes from just the animals,but what if I should get bit by a coon,bat,or skunk?
That bite scares me to death,,cause if I can't capture that critter,then it is the rabies treatment to go through.
Little later,it seems the wildlife spreads out,not all of them in your back yard.I calm down.Can sleep on the ground,or just a sleeping bag.Don't need any shelter other then a tarp for rain.
But then you got the ground critters. Spiders,snakes,ANTS!!!frog or toads,and skeetters!!
All are pretty much harmless,but can ruin a good nights sleep.
Then comes late fall.
What a great time of year!!!
You tune into all of the sounds and rustles in the night.
You now know them all,and I sleep my best.
Dead of winter and I really like nothing more then a good heat source and the wind in the trees.
Wildlife,,,,,They are still there,,but not in the numbers they once were.
Co-worker and buddy of mine likes to go along camping,,but that poor man goes through the batteries in his flashlight like no other.
Every sound,crackle,snap,,his head and light go turning around.
He sits 5 feet from the fire,not because he is cold,,but because "nothing" will get him.
If left alone he will follow you within 10 feet of you.
You go to bed early,he will go inside as soon as it gets dark.
After dark,he sits with his hand on the butt of his gun.
He loves to go camping...........BUT only before it gets dark.
So be honest,,,What really scares you ,,if anything???
true pleasure is a pair of red eyes coming at you in the night
