But again, I CAN understand your argument.
I have friends like yourself. They are upset frequently with the 'infringements' of others to their camping experience. We hear about it the whole trip and they never let it go, or do anything to remedy it. If the lights are too bright, move your chairs, pick a less populated campground, or heaven forbid.. go talk to them politely. As long as folks follow the rules, and turn off the noise/lights at the appropriate time... that's just part of sharing the campground. Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things

X's 2 I agree, you will meet what people may think to them is rude, but the person is really in his old dumb right, why ruin your weekend worrying about my neighbor....

I really only care that my neighbor does 3 things when camping:

1. Stay off my site unless invited.
2. Clean up after yourself and any pets you may have.
3. Respect quiet hours.

I have the perfect answer for noise. Install a second AC in the bedroom...make sure it is a dometic whisper quiet. You will not hear anything outside your bedroom door. Infact after another season I am sure my wife and I with both need hearing aids.

Staying at Locust Lake in Penn. We came back to our campsite late in the afternoon just in time to see some kids stealing our wood and taking them to the next campsite. I approached their father and he said that they thought we were leaving the next day so we shouldn't need it that night and they wanted a campfire.

I told him that was completely unacceptable, that they should ask first but since I had more in the truck I thought, what the heck and let them keep it. They were having so much trouble getting it started that he took a jar of gas and threw it over the wood then lit it with a huge fireball. He did this several times but to no avail.

Later on as we were sitting around our campfire my DW said I should take over a bucket of coals to help them get their fire started. As I gathered them up I heard him complaining to others with him the reason he didn't have a good fire, the next campers (us) had stolen his wood.

I dumped the coals back into our fire and sat down and enjoyed the fire. When we left the next morning, I left them some kindling behind with a note saying that asking would have gotten them a lot more.

this is one of the many reasons I avoid campgrounds like the plague.

Good one! Very true.... Kind of wakes you up a little when it shuts off.

The 5er came with pull down shades by MCD (?) and when down it is dark even during the day. Doubt that would bother me but some of the noise could be a pain. The 5er has outside speakers and doubtful they will ever be used. It also has an outside tv that has not been turned on since the PDI. We are usually gone exploring the area all day. Other than the smoke from a fire being ridiculous or obnoxious children little bothers us. We have not had a complaint about neighbors in years. Just lucky??? We usually stay in private CGs. Almost every time a pull through site where it seems fewer families prefer.
