I need advice- I recently returned to hiking, and I'm loving it- a great area, Saugatuck Dunes State Park. Many very isolated remote areas and trails. I go with my husband who's a big guy, 6'4, about 210 lbs., (I'm 5'1, 105 lbs.) and our German Shepherd. I love it and feel real safe as to location and security. I would like to do some of these hikes solo, but I'm afraid of being accosted, though this is unlikely.
I was robbed at gun point when I was 13 at our family store. That ended up affecting me in ways I never imagined, or even acknowledged for a long time. Even now. I don't like to put myself in a position of vulnerability in any way. The Solo bird is much easier to take.
Did any of you experience this feeling of vulnerability, and how did you deal with it?
