Leaf blower guy

Dear leaf blower guy-
I know the acorns and leaves are bothersome at your campsite. I too stepped on a few with bare feet last night whilst fetching a brew.....but please refrain from letting your industrial leaf blower sing its warrior song at 7:15 am. My kids rarely sleep past 6:30 at home, so thank you.

Some folks just don't think about others. I don't like the sound of a leaf blower any time of day. I really hate it when I have to deal with the sound of a campground's grass cutter for a whole day. But at least the grass cutter is necessary.

ryand, I'll be checking out Wakonda State Park near La Grange, MO next week when we stop for a couple of nights on our way to the Amana Rally. I don't know if you've been there, but it looks like a very interesting state park.

Only time I make enough noise to bother the other campers is when we pack up and there isn't any choice but this one your saying is excessive and unnecessary, plus most campgrounds have quiet hrs and every one we have stayed at until 8am it is still quiet hrs.

I feel for you, ryand. Some people just don't get it.........and probably still wouldn't even if you explain it to them.

Most quiet hours around here are from 10pm till 6am. But don't worry I do not own a leaf blower.

What is even worse noise is a clacking diesel truck driving to the camp store or the shower house at 6 am in the morning leaving it running because it is in regen mode!

I don't like the late nighters cranking there music up and loud talking when I have little ones trying to sleep. Not as bad with the 5er but when we tent camp it is bothersome.

Or the sound of the guy in the TT and his WD bars with stab bar grinding all the way around the campground

Or the screams of the DW after the DH backed into a tree with there $300,000 Motorhome. Saw that first hand at a KOA, she never looked up till 6 ft of roof was peeled back. My 100 mph tape and plastic sheet saved the day!
