Be very careful when you are on Market Street and Powell Street in San Francisco. These areas are the heart of cable car routes and feel very seedy especially after hours. I have found, however, that if you walk with a purpose (and preferably with a group) people don't bother you. Make absolutely certain that you know exactly where you need to go (such as the Powell Street BART station) BEFORE you leave wherever you are leaving from. USE COMMON SENSE!

Make sure everyone in your party is carring their own Water supply and Blanket....Just in case you get seperated at night! Trust me!!! No silly, I carry all my own gear! It wasn't me who had to sleep in a stump ALONE and thirsty!!!! Wow,glad we found them way later the next day!!! Without the Rangers! Thank God!

Be careful when travelling for long periods between states, like Arizona to Nevada and back. The roads can all look the same and it becomes monotonous. Makes sure you have another driver with you and take regular turns and stop once in a while.

Rest areas on us interstates can be breeding grounds for criminal activities such as prostitution,drug distribution and various cons.
While traveling in big cities people will try and sell you things on the street, My tip, if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is !
If you would like more information about travel on the interstates e-mail me at vt

If camping in North America,watch out for bears, wolves, skunks, hornets, badgers, possoms, foxes, mad deer, and poisonous plants like poison ivy. nless your in a camping resort, these encounters rarely happen. But if at your own risk, be careful!

When scuba or snorkling beware of the Sea Urchins. They look pretty but seem to be everywhere. Just walking out to deeper water to swim I stepped on one. There are no signs & if you dont look for them when walking bare foot, you can easily step on one. Hopefully if you do step on one that the spikes do not go in too far. If they do, immediately try to get it out. I know this might sound a bit gross, but they say that if you step on it that urine helps take out the pain. Believe me, its true! This picture was taken underwater in only 4' of water!
Well you have to remember that...
Well you have to remember that North America is one of the largest continents on Earth, so all precautions should be taken. Ladies dont walk around on your own at night. Place all valuable out of sight.
As with any big city, be...
As with any big city, be prepared! Watch out for gang activity. Keep a cell phone and something to defend yourself if the need arises. Make sure to keep your car in good working order, having a breakdown in L.A. or Fresno is no fun! It can be downright scarey at times!

Weather in the moutains ANY time of year can turn deadly cold. Be prepared for it.
The higher altitude and low humidity in mountains dehydrate a person even if not doing strenuous activities. Drink extra water and then some more.

In B.C. watch for rattle-smakes in the national parks and DO NOT FEED THOSE CUTE LITTLE BEAR CUBS that you may see at the side of the road. Momma Bear will be very close by and she can flatten you quickly. An angry Momma Bear is extremely dangerous.

You would have to be caefull if you lived near the shores because a hurricane,twister, or even a tornado will come and strike you. Or if you live in very HOT HOT places a fire can start easily. Anoher danger is driving, you should becareful because the roads are not so great.

If you go to Miami, you need to be sure and know what routes that you need to take and do not get off the beaten path. If you get lost, do not get out and ask questions. Either have a cell phone or find a public place.
Be extremely careful not to...
Be extremely careful not to get off the beaten path while in the French Quarter in New Orleans at night. Stay where there are people and lighted establishments. This has been the murder capital of the US for years. It is a lovely city, you just have to be cautious.
North America -isn't- the...
North America -isn't- the scary place the news might make it out to be. We're actually a pretty friendly lot. However customs officials can be very frustrating for non-nationals to deal with in airports, particularly if you favor dark/black clothes.
Waiting for a bus in the middle of the night -anywhere- is generally a bad idea, regardless of what city you're in, just to be safe.
