I'm sure it might have been fun if they had invited neighbors or talked to us about it. We had a child with us, and their choice of movie wasn't appropriate for kids at all. (Lots of use of the "F-Word".)

We were in a state park known for its natural setting, wooded campsites and scenic beauty. Perfect night for stargazing ...

Unfortunately, the way they set up their screen had the light shining right into our campsite ... and our nice dinner at the outdoor table was ruined by blood and guts ... it was so loud that we couldn't even hold a conversation at the picnic table.

Making it a big event and inviting all your fellow campers over for a film evening with popcorn and s'mores and adult beverages? "Bring your own chair and drinks, join the fun, we'd love to have you!" Something suitable for all ages? Sounds like a swell time. I'd be there in a skinny minute. And if I chose not to go, at least I'd know it was there and could make appropriate plans for the evening.

And I'm sure, done properly and being mindful of the setting and audience it could be a fun evening for all.

I totally agree. It very inconsiderate to start your truck in the early hours and leave it idol for 20 minutes. Come on, have some respect for others, you inconsiderate b@#%@#.

As you can see in my signature what truck I own. I do not let it until I'm ready to hook-up and pull out. Now with saying that I do not really know the reason that MH such as Georgetowns have to warm up for 20 minutes which are a lot louder then my 6.0, gas or diesel. I suspect it has something to do with air pressure or levelers. Some people who travel have to leave early and it will happen. If a person can't understand that then your not a camper period go stay at Motel 6. I have never heard of such whining about a engine starting. As far as lights go I have scare lights all around my unit if you come within 20' they are going to light up. I guess some of you people do not go to Goshen. You will see lights on trailers all night long. You might even hear a couple of drunks enjoying themselves at 3:00 AM I know I did last year. I respect others and expect the same, I know that in Goshen I'm going to have to pull out 1 morning at 6:00 AM I have to be at the factory that day by 7:00 AM. My point is that sometime it is uncontrollable. I think that your trailer came with wheels if you don't like it MOVE. and it will be all over......

What I think is funny are people getting upset over people getting ready to leave in the morning, yet likely feel as if they're without their own sins.

Are you really telling me that you're the perfect neighbor? Stone silent? Your rig won't block my view? You or your kids/grandkids are silent? Smoke from you cooking fish on the grill doesn't waft over and turn my stomach?

There's rude and inconsiderate, the loud crowd late at night. Wandering through my campsite. Taking your dogs off leash.

But everything you do will irritate someone. You can fire your engine and take off straight away, guess what? The starter noise and just leaving will wake some people up. I've been disturbed by neighbors having coffee and discussing what time they're leaving........at 5:30 in the morning. I've also been the one leaving at 4:30AM to make a soccer game for my daughter. I had an older couple screaming at each other trying to set up, then heard them complaining about a barking dog.

Know what irritates me? Improper grammar. Engines IDLE. Not IDOL.

See? Something irritates everyone.

Well said, SKnight. The problem with these "etiquette" threads is that they turn into a complaint-fest and everyone sounds like a bunch of curmudgeons. You then start to get little factions - diesel vs. anti-diesel; movie vs. anti-movie; lights vs. pure darkness; outside music vs. quiet; dogs vs. monkeys; kids vs. well, they are monkeys.

Everyone is going to have a pet peeve and everyone is going to offend someone some way.

I just don't see these threads as being productive.

This past week, while camping at Ft Wilderness, we had new neighbors come in late in the afternoon. As soon as the camper was backed into the site, the wife got of the truck and left (they had family staying on the other side of the loop, I found out). The dad got a small child out of the truck and was walking past and mentioned what a bad trip it had been, but they finally made it. Then for the next 45 minutes the wife came back with her mother, crying, complaining, and screaming, how she was going to get stuck in the camper all week, wasn't going to have any fun, and wanted to go home. When I heard this from our campsite, I thought it was a young teenage girl whining, (I have experience ). I guess to ease the stress of this woman, their entire clan came to their campsite for the evening and carried on until after 1am, when my wife called the office. The noise could be heard over our bedroom A/C, the tv, and my snoring(although I couldn't hear that ). They quickly disbanded and all was quiet again.

Other than to possibly open the eyes of some, that may not realize what they are doing, is an annoyance to others. I'm guilty, but at 3am in Goshen, we were in stealth mode!

Point taken about the misspelled word. I should proof read before I post. I use Google Voice.

I have no problem with people leaving early or coming in late. What bothers me are those who leave their engines running for 20 minutes while they tend to other things. What would it take to turn it off? I find that very inconsiderate to other campers around them. Another thing that irritates me is someone who points out spelling errors. Was that really necessary?

Yes, something does irritate everyone.
