I met someone today who says she has been followed in her travels by people who watch her and steal from her motorhome when she is gone.

She seems to think this is a real problem and that there is nothing to do about it. They watch for her to leave her motorhome and then they strike.

This whole thing seems unusual to me. I think you are fairly safe in an RV park?

People follow her in her travels? ...and watch her movements? ...and then steal from her motorhome when she is gone? What are they stealing? ...and if she knows she is being followed, wouldn't you think she would or could give the authorities a description of her sightings? Not saying it is not happening but it does sound somewhat far fetched.

In the 30 some years that I have been in RV parks and campgrounds I have never "lost" anything. I do not advertise by leaving things sitting out or laying about.
When I leave I put the chairs and stuff up against the RV and they have always been there when I got back.

I find this a little hard to believe also. Like someone else said, if you know you are being followed and watched, then why not report it. I am a seasonal camper and leave everything out and about. The only things that have ever been stolen in our campground was beer left in the outdoor fridges. It is usually some local kids during the week while everyone is at work. Someone's fridge even got stolen because he put a lock on it and they took the whole fridge...lol. If they want my beer that bad, they can have it.

I've never been followed or robbed in campgrounds. I have been followed while in the Jeep (Chattanooga had a problem for a few months with a few guys preying on women who were alone and robbing them, so I quit carrying money and only paid for stuff with my debit card). I usually pull the pop-up alone or with my 2 girls. If it's just me, David meets me at the campground to set upo. If the girls are with me, then we can pop-up ourselves and don't see David until he gets off work. The lady sounds either paranoid or she knows who is robbing her.

Ummmm....is she being followed by black helicopters as well? Has she tried a tinfoil hat to ward the invaders off?

This woman needs a "Major Trank" not an antidepressant.

I am glad she moved on. She said that the people robbing her have followed her, at least from South Dakota to California.

She said she had a problem with medications as she could not even leave heartworm pills for her dog around because they would steal them.

Maybe they toke her antipsychotic pills and now she is getting much worse?

Just think what that poor dog goes through, Someone needs to rescue that dog (that's Murphy's view of the situation). Murphy! Get off the computer!

Probably not so funny. Woman sounds like she has real mental problems. Often times folks with such problems will refuse to recognize it and won't get help.
