Perhaps boondocking for me would be better left for when my kids are teenagers or it's just my wife and I. I don't know, I just can't shake the idea of being comfortable in any place other than actual rv parks for my children's safety. We have a 1 year old and 4 year old, and anytime I consider the idea of going out into the woods, I worry and stress deeply about the night time and their safety. The problem is the best sites are typically found out in the woods. I guess I'm asking on here to see if anyone else feels the same way? Any time I look at places online and see them remarking about bear safety in the area I just immediately scratch off that location for fear for my children. I know anything could happen anywhere but I feel I would be devastated if anything did ever happen, knowing I could have just paid a few bucks to stay a little closer in town. How do people sleep at night knowing there could easily be numerous predator animals right outside their door? I also don't feel comfortable carrying a gun yet with my children so that's off the table.
