Leave Me Alone

I don't know if it is all the years in the Navy, or that I am just getting older.

I like to go to places where it is just me...no one around. I will be mingle with other people when I want! You can't make me!!!

I think your best strategy would be to find remote boondocking locations to camp. I would stay away from the traditional RVparks. I am not there yet. I like visiting with my neighbors and socializing with people.

It's so weird being the same age as old people.

Too much time standing "checks" can do that to you.

I can sympathize, I worked for years where I HAD to answer the phone when it rang ( which was constant ) now if it wasn't for communicating with family ; I wouldn't have one.

Most times my cell phone is somewhere out of hearing range ( with a dead battery ) if it's trouble , I don't need any ; if it's important they'll call back.

I do a lot of camping not too far away at various San Diego County parks, and they all have spaces that are fairly well separated. I often go alone, and I've found that people don't really mingle much anyway. Wouldn't bother me if someone came over to talk, I'm not antisocial. However I tend not to butt into anyone else's business, and I do like to get away on my own, and do some easy hikes just for the peace and quiet. However at the gas prices right now, almost $7 a gallon here, I think I have my peace and quiet at home, and with bike rides along the local beach path.

If you want people to stay away just put on some Barry Manilow.

OP
Were you a submariner?
If so, I can see why you would want some privacy.
I just toured the one in Mobile, and that is something I could not handle..........

I use to think I was OK with no one around, and often would be for a time. But after Covid hit and we all started working from home, I realized how socially dependent I was. Yes, it took several months, but after a while I started going crazy.
