Crime is going down but we humans like drama so we gravitate toward it, the news obliges our curiosity and the internet makes it even easier to see stuff from miles away. I am reading a book by Hans Rosling called Factfulness, the stats are amazing. There is a TED talk by Steve Pinker that lists everything as well. Be carefull and have fun, were only here for a short visit.

I donít think a skoolie with good locks is less secure than a house, but vehicles are targets more than houses. I donít park my house in strange places either trust people, lock your shiz.

I find it interesting that someone mentioned they would feel safe inside a city. I live in Portland and would NEVER want to park and stay the night in a bus. There are SO many homeless people here that can and will break into your bus. I've had my car broken into in my own drive way as well as people beating on my doors and windows at night.
I'd feel way safer out in the woods any day of the week.

In fact that is our plan. We are hoping to buy 5-10 acres in Washington, Montana, Nevada, & Colorado. Maybe not all of them. We will see. We want to winter a bit more southern than Montana and Washington. Anyways, my point is that cities don't necessarily equal safe. Really just depends on the city. Same goes for forests and woodland areas. Just depends on where you are.
Ex-school bus driver looking forward to living in a bus someday & traveling with my husband, 3 girls, & our dog.

I've been on the road for a little over 2 years now, mostly in a van but a Skoolie for the last 3 months. Coast to coast, but majority western states. I camp in national forests mostly, but have done some urban stuff. I've not had any real problems, but had one bad experience in Eugene Or. in a case of mistaken identity and recently in Prescott NF where a religious zealot woke me in the middle of the night to read me a bible passage. I feel safe in the forest, but not so much in urban areas. I think the key is to not visibly display anything of value and to be aware of your surroundings.
