I'm going to spend about 6 weeks travelling the western US next may in pic related. How do I keep myself safe at night?
tell us where you'll be and we'll help find a good place
666? And you're worried? Also brofist to a fellow jeeper
> get's me /out/ real nice now
Because it wouldn't do that before without a winch and a light bar.
Jeep fags are the WORST gearfags EVER!
> if only I had 33" tires instead of 32" tires
the problem is the jeep not the owner. they look like fine off road vehicles, on paper the spec's check out but they're mechanically unsound pieces of shit built by a workforce more interested in reaping benefits and securing a comfortable retirement than quality.
Sleep in your car if your so worried. The sound of shattering glass with give you just enough time to see the clutching claws and dripping fangs of your assailant before being taken to the void.
Some of us have jobs and can't stay up all night on Mountain Dew and Call of Duty in our moms basements...
Lift's and taller tires make a larger difference than you think. Yeah most of the time one a subaru or a truck is fine, but a Joop can go over much hairier terrain than nearly all things under $10k. My joop in pic related as a 2" lift with 31" tires which stock are 28". Srs, having that extra articulation goes a long way.
What makes them unsound? Not sure what you're comparing to.
If you're that afraid of the /out/doors, stay /in/side. I spend weeks sleeping in a bivvy on the ground and don't bother with carrying a gun. I've woken up in the middle of the night to bears walking through my camp and once a doe nudged me to see what I was. If you're such a pussy that you'd freak out over shit like that, you'd probably get trampled. Buy yourself a RV.
if you can sleep near a light source do that.
have the jeep unlocked with the keys in the ignition so you can be gone in a flash.
try not to go too remote and stay away from forests.
sleep in a sleeping bag with the following:
water, food, your handgun, a very bright flashlight and a personal locator beacon.
Traditionally, it's a set of BDUs with the buttons cut off and a hunting knife dull as fuck plus all the supplies you can fit in a standard band-aid tin. You get picked up two weeks later, but you fail unless you're clean shaven, have a razors edge on your knife and buttons on your shirt.
not the most chinese ninja in all of japan can creep up on that motherfucker
black bears have the most amazing creep ability at night in all of planet earth, and they sure as fuck wont be able to get anywhere near your perimeter
they wont even bother because they can smell your fucking dog
or bring your pet bear. Remember the best way to stop a bad bear is with a good bear
>tfw you'll never have a bear as a pet
Why even live, senpai?
bears are dumb animals like niggers
if you dont have the balls to shoot a fucking bitch mother with her cubs dead, then you can just throw some chicken at the nigger bear mother in exchange for one of her cubs and raise the fucking cub as your son
SLEEP WHERE THERE WILL BE MANY PEOPLE OR NO PEOPLE
DO NOT SLEEP IN SHITTY NEIGHBORHOODS OR THE HOODRATS WILL GET YOU
DO NOT SLEEP IN NICE NEIGHBORHOODS OR THE POLICE WILL GET YOU
SLEEP IN 24/7 PARKING LOTS
SLEEP IN REST AREAS
SLEEP IN SMALL TOWN PARKS
IF THE COPS ASK YOU WHAT YOU"RE DOING, TELL THEM
ASK LOCAL OFFICIALS WHERE YOU CAN CAR CAMP FOR THE NIGHT
Seriously though, Sleep in your Jeep when justifiable paranoid(cops more likely to let go if drive/get out right then and there)
As for security, look in the kid toy isle for trip wire alarms, jerry rig better wire and pulleys for setting them off, get 25' solar powered motion lights/attach buzzer to said lights, for motion sensitive proximity alert/not in plain sight of course, don't be camping in the middle of little Timmy's MOM's favorite park/parking-lot. Think about what people will get away with in a given situation, cover your ass, good to go. Go to ultra cheap hotel/motel once a week or so for credibility for your travels/background checks/keeping locals happy(he's paying his taxes/not hobo)
