Yeah something came up to the tent that night I solo camped

Probably a raccoon

Only thing I was worried about was a pack of wild boars

I know it seems like a funny thing to be worried about because they're not predators but in east TX where I was camping, they have a severe feral hog problem, and I've heard all kinds of stories about how they're super aggressive and will wreck you because they're so territorial

Idk tho lol

Hogs are insanely smart. They coordinate hunting efforts, and do consider humans as food items.

I had a pet pig growing up, that fucker was trained to a litter box in the first month or so, understood a shitload of words, and could hold a grudge for weeks and randomly piss in your shoes in return for being scolded.

A group of feral hogs is something to worry about.

I camped (not solo though, each time was with one other person) in the Grand Tetons and in Yellowstone several years ago. That was a trip knowing that grizzly bears and wolves were out there. Fortunately we didn't get any visits though, lol.

And by the way when I say solo camping, I mean solo. Not just camping in a campground by yourself with a bunch of other campers around. I mean true solo in the woods by yourself far away from anyone else solo camping.

I need to get brave and really take the dive in. And just try to become a significantly more improved and seasoned solo camper/hiker in general. It takes practice like anything else. Every time I bring it up though to family or friends or whatever they act like I'm insane for wanting to solo hike/camp. They say that it's not smart and that I could get lost and up a news headline :snub:

I already live far away from everyone and I own 12 acres of woods so does that count when I camp solo on them? Lol

I've not done a lot of solo camping, but I've done a fair amount of solo hiking in the Appalachians, Rockies, and High Sierras. Running up on any sort of large animal when you're 5-15 miles out will shake up your confidence. Black bears were fairly shy and just wanted to get away from you, moose just turn around and stare at you until you leave, and you should definitely leave if that ever happens.

The closest I've ever come to getting attacked was a fucking mountain goat on a 14er in the Rockies. She had a kid with her, and they were standing on the only good path down, and she squared off with me when I tried to squeeze past, thought I was going to have to bail off the trail on a pretty steep area of scree.

I've not yet met Elk or Grizzlies on the trail, and I'd prefer not to if possible :grizzlybear:

Meeting any animal big enough to knock you over in sketchy terrain is crazy for sure. Man I'm jealous. How was breathing in the mountains? Was it harder? Did your lung capacity improve when you came back down?

I currently live just a bit over a mile up in NM, so it's not a big deal now, although at 14k ft you still notice it.

Back then, I was living at about 300ft above sea level, so 14ers were several days of hiking at 8k, then 10k, then 12k, just so that I could actually get through the last 500 ft of elevation gain near the summit.

Hiking in the Sierras was the worst, mainly because I didn't have time to acclimate whenever I was there (usually long weekends or job interviews), so a 5 mile trail up to a 12k ft pass was enough to almost bonk on the way up.

Normally a week at altitude doesn't give you time to feel amazing when you drop to lower altitude. I've not been below 4500ft for the last 1.5 years since I moved, but I'm interested to see how I feel when I go back to 900ft when I visit the family in December. From what I hear, I should be able to drink everyone under the table at lower elevations.

I have fallen in love with New Mexico in recent years. Been to Ruidoso a couple of times in the past year. What an underrated gem of an area.

I also love the desert mountain regions of New Mexico.

I have a short list of states that I'd love to retire in and New Mexico is on that list.
