We’re staying in a very pretty, heavily wooded RV park in Burnaby, BC. The first site we choose backed onto a busy road and was way too loud. The second day we moved deeper into the park and chose a spot next to a walking trail, which may not have been a good idea.
Unlike most, we chose a spot that doesn’t have room for us to park our truck next to it.
Two nights ago we were startled at 4 am by a loud pounding on our door. It was pouring rain and very dark in our little corner of the campground. My husband called through the door, asking what they wanted. A man’s voice yelled that our neighbor Jim had had an accident and needed help.
Seriously? My husband asked what they expected us to do about it… then suggested they call the police. We assume when they heard my husband say “call the police” they thought he was telling me to call because they took off running, fast.
We were spooked and it took a long time to fall back to sleep. The following day we bought this.
Being in a trailer rather than a Class A or Class C means we have no access to our horn which could alert people if there was trouble. My daughter suggested we also get Bear Spray so we may buy that too.
This is our first experience feeling vulnerable while RVing. It wasn’t serious but reminded us that we’re more susceptible here than at home.
Now for some retail therapy…I could use some.
There are amazing sales going on this weekend if you’re so inclined. I ordered 2 sale items this week, but of course, can’t wear them until we get home next month.
