Boondocking Horror story ... Blue Streams, Youngstown, FL

You can start about 8 minutes but best to start at the beginning. Worth the time to watch.

I think you need to change the title to 'Blue Spring'. Here's the link:

She’s too hard to watch, I’ve tried to watch a couple of her videos before, she drags the story out much longer than necessary. Watch her WalMart Dos and Don’ts video, worse than watching paint dry, or it could be that she uses “like” interchangeably as a noun, verb and adverb

I Agree she had a bad experience. Would not want my neice to go through something like that.

The person she reported it to and was aware of the issue is certainly a real gem. Hope her father had a discussion with him.

X2. We are sitting at home right now with massive bandwidth, but I really hate videos that take forever to say what could be read in a minute or two. I did a quick google of the location. Was she dry camping somewhere or was she really boondocking (which is a term I reserve for dry camping in undeveloped areas, not parking lots).

Attempting to watch and listen to this lady, for me, is impossible.

Well that was wasted minutes of my life. I found WiFi and watched a young woman spout paranoia. She was parked on rural property and heard a truck in the middle of the night. From that she surmised that there was evil outside her door. She left her travel trailer in the middle of the night out of fear and was surprised to find it exactly like she left it the next morning. She did find a pair of "dirty men's underwear", but I suspect she just didn’t see them earlier.

The only horror in this video is the bad acting and the ridiculous imagination this woman presents. If you haven’t watched it save yourself the time and bother.

With all due respect, I am with ok monkey on this one. I went back and suffered through the video a second time and still only saw a paranoid drama queen.

Could you please identify the point or points we are to take away from this video? (Other than exercise one’s second amendment rights)

Thanks in advance.

After the third "like" I was finished. If people can't put a sentence together without using the word "like", like I'm outta there.

Pretty typical of these wildlife management areas. Young people party and drink all night long. It can be annoying, but rarely will there be a confrontation. The lady was intimidated, but not sure if it was intentional or not. I have tent camped alone in those places and was more worried for my vehicle than myself when characters came around in the middle of the night. As mentioned, a mean sounding dog (or playing a recording of one) will generally send most people the other direction.

Regarding this video, I just used the pull bar along to get the idea of what she was getting at. I think I spent 3 minutes and got the point of the story. Definitely a case of a city person scared in the wilderness.

It seems a few people missed where she said that when she reported the incident the manager of the area told her there was a family down the road who did what she said to intimidate campers.
