As I posted in his comments, If they really were "old", as he described them, they didn't get that way by letting uninvited strangers into their van at night.

Interesting RV picture I found online several months ago. Sounds like the "old" couple need this on the window of their camper.

Roger that! At the very most that might be called harassment(both parties). Nothing life-threatening.

Its getting like Dodge City and if you don't take care of yourself and love ones you may not see tomorrow! I have plenty of fire power to take care of whom ever is with me. I also have a open/concelled weapons permit.

The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms.

[QUOTE=wyorancher;2450740]Start driving around my RV and taking pix and stalking I would dial 911. Not stalk you back if that was the case. If someone came to my door and demanded entrance the proper procedure is to report it. Isn't that what law enforcement is for? Damn, this ain't Dodge City in the 1800s. We do have police departments in the 21st century. All we need is some wanta be cop that ends up being shot for no reason except for stupidity. Jmo

Self defense is not "stalking someone back"... Being prepared to handle an escalating situation is called backbone. There are not enough cops on duty to respond to every victim or call for help that occurs on a given night. By all means escape the situation if possible by locking your doors and driving away, and report the situation. Getting the perps lisc plate might prevent someone else from becoming a victim but actually the nut case broke no law, so the police response would be rather slow. A lifetime of police work has formed my not so humble opinion...

I was considering trying out Wally Worlds for overnight stops but maybe not now. That is beyond creepy.

They might have followed the "old couple" down the road and really caused problems.

The guy is an idiot and dangerous, too, if he thinks it's okay to approach someone in their RV at night.

I don't get it, why would stay anywhere where you don't feel safe. Is saving $35.00 worth your safety?

We got stuck out late one night and ended up in a Walmart parking lot north of San Francisco. It wasn't bad, parked next to another RV and chatted for a while. Just have to watch your surroundings and make the best assessment you can re the safety. This one was in a nice area, clean, and no strange people walking or driving about( at least where the RV's were parked). Felt safe, slept well and left early in the AM with no problems.
