Boy, Westinghousse really knows how to sell this place. Among 300 odd million people you will get the occasional fruitcake, pay close attention to Fox News or National Enquirer they are on top of them. Or not. Your chances of meeting said fruits are about the same as your chances of winning a state lottery, pretty small. I've crossed this country solo a couple of times E-W and once N-S plus done some big chunks in amongst and the major objective hazard, as the climbers say, seems to be dogs particularly in reservations. A can of Halt readily accessible fixes 'em. At least the two times I used it it did. One thing to avoid is going into Mexico, Do not do it. The chances of coming across bad guys rocket in Mexican border towns. My main recollections are of kindness and polite curiosity in this awful and crime ridden country.
Do it. You'll be fine.
