@jinxypop Happy to give you some tips if you're curious.  I'm a very petite woman (hello, easy target!) who really enjoys getting to some super remote areas on her own....no dog, no gun.  Avid hiker and lover of nature therapy.  I've even stumbled upon some not-so-friendly-to-POC areas by myself but if you're prepared and confident, you should be fine!  I've felt nervous, sure, but the enjoyment I get out of a solo adventure in the wild is well worth it!
