I recently wrote an article on the 5 Basic Snake Safety Tips Every RVers Needs to Know. As the title suggests, I covered the basic safety measures every RVer should take whenever they go camping in snake country.
As we learned, ALMOST ALL of the United States is snake country. In fact, 46 of the 50 states are home not only to snakes but venomous snakes. So, it's important that you and everyone in your travel party learn snake safety.
I covered the basics in that article, but now I'm going to go into more depth. I'm going to list out the Dos and Don'ts of snake safety.
