        This might be true. I have zero fear of camping alone and thinking of it as super comfy. But when I was a teen I remember wandering around different wildernesses freaking myself out over ghosts and shit for no reason like a 24 carat retard.

      I did camp alone in November and it was kinda a mistake:
      >already dark at 7pm
      >just lay in my spleeping bag and try to sleep
      >can’t read book because I’m just too exhausted from day hike
      >can’t do a big camp fire thanks to being in a shit and densely populated country with gay laws.
      >bad camp spot with no water
      >didn’t even had good food with me, just rice
      So after 3h trying to sleep I say gently caress this shit and did a night hike back to my car. Took nearly 4 hours and at the beginning its stress me out like some Skinwalker is after me. I relax after the first few hundred meter and spotted a few deers. Its just better if you go with a mate.

      I get less scared of people messing with me the further from the trailhead I go, especially on trails that only allow transportation by foot, bike, horse. If you’re 12 miles up a trail, it would take serious commitment and planning from a psycho person, and often there is just one or two trails exiting the area, so they might not feel secure fleeing the area. I’d be more worried camping with a mile or two from a road or homes.

      My fondest memory camping is sitting in the dark clutching my rifle while some critter paced around my tent. It was in the Colorado Rockies and I know it wasn’t a raccoon or possum or skunk from the sound because those walk by my window every other night. Do coyotes live up in the mountains? I was at over 12k feet. I wonder if it was bigfoot or a cougar?

        Exactly when I was younger I was afraid of going in the woods by myself. Now I’m 6’6 and constantly carry a machete every time I’m out and about. The moment it dawned on me that I was the thing people feared seeing in the woods gives me a strange feeling of security like I’m the largest fish in the pond I’m the apex predator and this is MY woods. It’s a really hard feeling to explain unless you experience it yourself

      I bought a minivan took all the bucket seats out and put a foldable stand up cot and -15 sleeping bag inside i also took the passenger bucket seat out and i store my 10 foot fishing kayak inside i got my axe some firewood and camp stove and cooler. I would never sleep in a tent. Watched way to many videos on the internet of bear attacks that have permantly spooked me. All i have if i run into a grizzly while im hiking is bear spray and buck knife and if he wants to eat me well then im gently caressed they will never let me own a gun. Camping alone is the best thing in the world but i do get spooked sometimes when im in very remote places when its dead quite you almost anticipate hearing something very loud. Best to dessotize yourself over and over to get over that i would think. I would also just want to add gently caress diverse folk gently caress garden gnomes and gently caress jannies

      A few weeks back i was hunting alone on a multi day trip for deer. Got a doe on the first day and was horny as gently caress so i decided to gently caress it. Was one of the best nuts of my life. I sent videos to a bunch of hoes on my snapchat and they all liked it. Kept the body warm next to a fire and went for five rounds that day.

      I followed a lot of the advice in here and went on my first long hike alone at night, deep into the woods. After I got over my anxiety and sense that everything was looking at me, or stalking me, or my sense of human figures in my peripheral vision, it was actually quite nice to spend so much time feeling utterly alone under the beautiful full moon. I felt like I was actually becoming part of the woods, not an interloper, and at some point I stopped straining my ears against the wind to listen for murderous footsteps, and I stopped hearing what I thought was whispers of human voices in the distance. It really does become comfy to be out/alone in the dark, and I have to thank you all for helping me to get over myself. All I brought with me was a knife, which I laughably told myself would be useful if someone or something had decided to set upon me. The only thing is that now that I am back, the world seems somehow slightly distored in a way that I can’t really place, and I keep hearing something that seems like fey voices at the very edge of my senses. When I look out my window into the darkness of the forest behind my house, my eyes play tricks that there is something out there moving, dancing even. I want to join them. I need to join them. Anyone else have this problem?

        If you aren’t a larp—- I’m not a mental healthcare practitioner, but sounds like your anxiety and anticipation show up as the voices and movements see from the corner of your eye.

        Any time I come back from the woods or vacation I always wonder why I bother with daily bullshit like work and other people. It’s normal to want to go back to the trees after staying there for a while.

      gives you time to reflect

      Any noise you hear is probably me or someone like me arriving late after some unexpected work shit.
      Then again, I only go hiking every other week…
      Save a bullet for yourself.

      Solitude in the wilderness is a fantastic thing
