Inconsiderate neighbors!

Despite the thread title, I just got back from a great weekend at the lake. Really! Just look at some of the pics:

Let's see your 2016 Campsites

The only damper (besides the 95-degree heat & humidity) was my neighbor who insisted on firing up FIVE!!!!! 100-watt work lights from sunset at 7:30p until quiet hour at 10:00pm. The guy had an LED strip above his door, too. The first night, I though he was just using them to get backed in and setup. But I was dumbfounded the second night when he burned them for no good reason! That's my campfire at the bottom left

Must be an urban camper. He's afraid of the dark!

Maybe he has a visual impairment and needs the extra light after sunset to help him get around?

I have never had inconsiderate neighbors and do you know why? I camp alone as far away as possible from everyone else in the back country.

That is certainly a possibility. More likely this person likes a well-lit campsite. The park owner should have him shut it off. The lights on the RV should be more that adequate. Most folks are pretty nice, but some are real problem children who only think of themselves.

Some people (very few, but one is to many) are just oblivious to others around them.......what"s the old saying...."Ignorance Is Bliss !

We were at a campground a few weeks ago and a group played their music all day, even when they were not present. I don't think they will be a problem next year as when I got up the next morning, there were five people sitting in chairs,,,,,,on the roof. After that roof leaks all winter, they probably won't be there next year. Karma's really a pain isn't it!!

They had a toy hauler so I'm guessing a ladder on the backside from me. Amazing that some people have so little respect for others camping there or their equipment. I wondered at the time if they had borrowed the trailer from someone.
