    • Thank you! Ours are always leashed when not enclosed. We also use x pens to create a safe area under our awning, not so much to keep ours in, but to keep the "never left my side before" pets, and other wildlife, out. E vets are not cheap or plentiful, and we have a duty to our pets to keep them safe.   We have greyhounds. 40mph in a few strides... even as seniors, if they are awake. They have been rushed several times, but never attacked. We stop the rushing animals as needed, within the law. For night walks, they wear flashing collars and leash. Always have a reflective collar on as well.
    • I stayed in AZ last winter and pack rats are a known problem there. I used bright rope lights, a 100' roll around the camper and truck, also draped around the engine compartment with a timer to come on at dark. In addition, I put bags of Cabin Fresh around the camper and truck. I do not like leaving the hood open with the motor exposed to the elements, so that was not a option. Also, check your truck every couple of days and if you see a mouse/rat around your vehicle then you know you have problems and will need to set spring traps or poison.
    • As one that boondocks nearly exclusively, I always find conceptions like this interesting. Be it generators, screaming ATV's up and down the road all day, blaring music, light strings or dogs off leash... it seems there is the general misconception that just because you don't see anyone on your way in to a campsite, or hear anyone yourselves, that you are the only souls alive for miles. Especially in heavily forested areas you may pull in to camp with neighbors only 100 yards off that you may be completely unaware of. Dogs off leash? I quite often have vistors of the, obviously, pet variety pay me a visit. Likely attracted to my camp noise or smells. (Probably much like their owners... I had no idea anyone else was nearby and have no idea where they came from. ) I don't "especially" mind them, per se. Can't really fault the animal for following it's instincts/curiosity. I don't travel with a dog or cat so I'm not concerned about pet attacks, but in my years I HAVE had food stolen off my table by dogs, have caught them trying to tear my temporary trash baggy down and had one run off with a dish towel on one occassion. I think the only times it's especially annoying is during hunting season, you have game hanging and they try to sneak in for a taste. Once they do they just keep coming back again and again. Even firing a shot over their heads won't keep them away for long. Of course, even if you try and talk to the owners it's always the same. "Our dog/dogs never go further than we can see them". (Ever wondered how much ground a dog can cover in 5 minutes? Look it up. ) I can count on two fingers the number of times an owner has actually just said, "Sorry 'bout that." One bright side of the coin though. Away from their owners (not in "protective mode") and in foreign territory themselves... they are very rarely "ever" aggressive.  But whatchagonnado? Where others may go to greater efforts to be able to enjoy the beauty and solidute of nature... and where camping etiquette "should" be more closely observed... it seems that, for many, "boondocking etiquette" is either completely foreign to them or goes right out the window as soon as their tires break pavement.
    • Looks Good,    It's a start but there only a few chicken lights on that truck,  I noticed that the back wheels are Pete oval, the front are generic round hole.     If it has all aluminum wheels perhaps the backs are all oval take a couple of inside IF they are oval for the front.   Steve
    • Not a class A but we do have a little 32 foot class C floating around for shorter trips and small spaces.
