My ds is 36,and carries a pistol when he camps,well him and his friends went to death valley and there was a young woman in the camp sight next to theirs,by herself,well she has a puppy but by herself.anyway so dusk comes she cooks and was in her tent,then came out and started a fire,3 coyotes came into her site and started growling getting ready to attack her dog.my son tried to scare them away first but when they snarled and snapped,my son shot the ground in front of them and they ran. The girl is now sitting in their camp waiting until she's tired so she doesn't have to sit by herself,my son isn't objecting lol he sent me a picture of her and her puppy and shes a cutie,they are all going to scotties castle tomorrow.
But yeah that girl is lucky my ds was there
edit* last night while she was sitting in their camp they were talking about stuff and getting to know her,my ds really likes her and texted me right before i fell asleep all excited because she lives 20 minutes from his house lol he then told me that he was determined to ask her out or ask for her number by the end of the trip to Scotties castle today lol my ds said "the only "problem" is,shes 15 years younger then me,the guys think shes way to young for me,but idc im still going for her" my son still acts like a teen age boy when he sees a pretty girl lol
oh also he found out that the rangers are some of her dads friends so they always know where she is,and that shes been camping since she was a few months old,been going to death valley since she was 4 and always has things to scare animals away just not a pistol
