There is an old proverb that "good fences make good neighbors."

Benjamin Franklin also once said to "love your neighbor, but don't yank out your hedge."

Who Said "Good Fences Make Good Neighbors"?

Our sense of "space" (or territory) defines us as a species from the beginning of our awareness of self. While homo-sapiens are social beings, they are fiercely territorial. Some branches of our tree are comfortable with less (like the Japanese for example), and some require more. Folks who live in the wide open spaces of the American West know what I am talking about when jammed into an elevator in New York.

This concept of defending "our space" leads directly to our hard wired need to defend our property as well (since by definition they are IN our space).

The opening scene from the movie "2001: A Space Odyssey" depicts the entire concept very well. No amount of social engineering will eliminate the need for personal space and no amount of wishful thinking will eliminate our need to defend "our stuff". RULES (laws) are made by humans to allow larger groups of humans to coexist peacefully.

When aggression against the rule of law, (and we rule keepers), becomes common place, the breakdown of who we aspire to be becomes blurred by who we were from the dawn of time.

The "rule" about cutting through another's campsite is unwritten, but is based upon the respect of one family group's space as you would want that family group to respect yours.

I am not surprised the confrontation became heated, because defense against aggression is a natural response. Just be glad you did not need to use a jawbone to send them packing!

I'm a mallard duck. I fly with mallards. Pintail can light on my pond and eat my acorns though.

Folks misuse words these days. Big difference in racist and being racial.

Probably camping newbies.

#1 Rule in camping is NEVER EVER walk through another camper's site.

Sorry they put a damper on your weekend. I agree with others: Camp On!

P.S. DISCLAIMER! This statement was made in jest, with the intention of making a humorous remark on a difficult situation. If you find offense with this statement and cannot contain your outrage to the point where you must register your righteous indignation wiht the moderators, (as apparently some of you have before over some of my posts), Can I recommend an Advil, a Glass of wine, and a brief lie down till you are feeling better? KthxBye!

A few months ago during all the uproar over the confederate flag I pulled into Sears and lady called me a racist. She said that flag on my license plate proved it. Well, the flag was red and white scuba diving flag. I tried to explain to her what the flag stood for but she won’t quit yelling four letter words at me. When I came back out of Sears my plate was bent and scratches on my truck.
