  • I live in the country as well and it's quite a walk down to the road to take the trash out, i dread going and draging the trash can to the road at night time. If I have to do it i carry a flash light with me and that makes me feel somewhat better a mag light just incase you need to beat something with it lol just kidding. However the critters out there are more affraid of you then you are of them, everytime i see a racoon, they run away so do possums but they still about make me pee my pants, a flash lite is your best bet or if you don't have one turn your vehicle on with the lights facing toward the path that you are going to walk. Hope this helps.

  • do it the evening before, thats what I do. We live in Alaska and there is a very good chance of something coming out to get me. I know your supposed to wait till morning, but if you feel better you can get a "bear proof" can. (Anon 7:31 must live in the city -lol)

  • Totally not lame. There are lots of scary animals out there in the country (I lived there for a long while and even deer are pretty damn big and scary if you don't have a gun). Get up early and put the trash out just as the trash men are coming down your road so that way you aren't alone out there.

  • Don't feel bad, I have the habit of taking a bag of trash out to the trash bin at 1am and I'm all cool about it and then as soon as I lift the lid I scare myself with the story my brother told me about a ghost that sits on my back fence. I then run back to my house and break out in a sweat. NEXT TIME take it out before dark! lol.

  • LOL I'm scared of doing that too. We get bears on our trail came all the time, we even got one thrashing a deer carcass around so yeah its pretty scary to go outside in the dark.
