Weirdest RV Moment: Werewolf shows up after dark at campsite. Scary!

Reader John W. sent along his Weirdest RV Moment:

Many years ago we were traveling through New England in a Class C motorhome. We got into a state campground in New Hampshire’s White Mountains later than expected. It was really, really dark. We managed to get into our site and set up. No lights anywhere, and it was like we were the only campers there.

A couple of hours later my wife was cooking dinner. Next thing I knew she let out a bloodcurdling scream. I jumped up and there looking in the large galley window was what appeared to be a big guy wearing a very realistic werewolf mask. At least we hoped it was a mask!

After regaining our composure, I grabbed the brightest flashlight I could find, along with all our exterior lights on. The guy or werewolf was long gone. We didn’t sleep well that night and had weapons by our sides.

Might have been a black bear?

I see there’s a new facebook group for campers over 70. That would be of interest to to me if I didn’t view facebook with a level of contempt I usually reserve for politicians. Aren’t there any websites for camping old fogies that don’t support facebook and the rest of that ilk?

I wish I could help you. I’m on FB a lot and have joined many rv forums and have helped a lot of campers. I share your contempt for what you’re talking about but if you can get past that it can be beneficial. Have you joined irv2? -It’s a great rv resource with plenty of mature and knowledgeable members.

The fool in the mask is lucky he’s still alive! Assuming, of course, that it was a fool in a mask.

That’s an easy way to get shot.

Yeah, that was my reaction, as well. A lot of folks carry firearms with them when camping, and not without some good reasons. If that was supposed to be some kind of joke, he ought to reconsider!
