If you wanted to be a hermit (or at least, take a vacation from humanity for awhile) as a vehicle dweller, where would you go...?
the slab
??
Some of us (me included) would choose southern Nevada/ northern Arizona, alone is a frame of mind you are always alone even when you are with people embrace being alone among people. I said that??? Where are you located.
The "slab" in a morgue?
Or "the slabs" near Calpatria?
Then we can wander off into categories of "humanity" to be avoided.

Places very hard to reach would keep most of humanity away. Most like to park close to the storefront.
Places with climate extremes. Hot days and frigid nights.
Places that are not "destinations".
I prefer the West. As my father said, it's miles and miles of miles and miles.

But for me, getting away from humanity is mostly a state of mind. I can be alone and happy in a crowd.

Here's a link to a blog post I did about where the people aren't: http://rollingsteeltent.blogspot.com/201...arent.html

By the way, in the lower 48 you're never more than 107 miles from a McDonald's. http://www.datapointed.net/2009/09/dista...mcdonalds/

as you just said vehicle, i will step outside the box and retreat to my sailboat. the gulf islands and inside passage in summer, or sea of cortez in winter.

if i've gone tofar and must pick a rubber tired vehicle to get there. then in my short bus skoolie i have found that once i get 10 miles off the paved road. i am quite alone and away from people as long as those 10 miles are not along the path to a marked destination, like verde hotsprings. then even if i happen to see someone, they are vary likely to not be normal humanity... also i am careful to observe the "seasons" and avoid the forest in hunting season, the beach in the summer, the southern desert in the winter and so on...

27,000+ Subways
14,000+ Starbucks
