Nice story...thanks for sharing. We, on the other hand, have had a few problems with youngsters. Loud music playing all day and night, and not a person in sight! They took off for a walk for two hours and just left the music blaring. Our group was also robbed by three teen boys staying in a tent across from our site. They got a laptop, some golf clubs and took some firewood. They broke the center console in my Durango in the process. They also stole firewood from the camp host and a few other sites. They only stayed the one night and were gone by 8am the next morning. Seems they just wanted to see who they could rip off. Since then we've been much better at locking everything at night and paying attention to who is staying near us.

Over the 4th of July we were the loud ones. Most of our neighbors were listening to the Detroit Tigers playing so we turned on our outside speakers so we could all hear. A neighbor from across the street came over and asked us to turn it down, which we did. They said they didn't listen to baseball and they sounded a little foreign. But every time a song came on about being a Proud American or a Patriotic song came on our radio did get turned up for that song and after we turned it down.

Edit: FYI I do not have anything against anybody camping American or Foreign but not wanting to listen to the Detroit Tigers is just not right.

I don't mind so much the loud music( except the hard headbanger and gangsta rap). I can deal with it. What I can't stand is thievery. I've had firewood stolen many times. And it's usually teenagers or the unruly drunkards that I have a plague of camping next to.

The only time I turn up the radio for others to hear is for when I play the national anthem at noon on Sunday. Most stop, stand and take off thier hats. Then cheer when it is over.

I've fired out Jimi Hendrix version on occasion and have had similar results. Interesting watching veterans getting impatient half way thru that homage.

I always wondered why they put outside speakers on my camper, as I would never consider turning them on. I go camping for peace and quiet, and have no use for listening to anything my neighbors think is worth sharing. So I certainly wouldn't subject them to whatever I am listening to.
Are people so used to noise that they think it is ok to make even more of it?
I simply don't get it.

I am the generation you kindly speak of. It has nothing to do with age or generation. It has to do with respect. I respect those around me and assume they like peace and quiet like bakken does.

My oldest DS , and his family camps with us from time to time
I have a son and daughter , 28- 26
They have been taught manners , respect your elders and your betters

Me and him can start a conversation with anyone , my DD , is more quiet
We have really never had a problem with folks or with stealing , but we do Take care of business
Lock things up , cover things up .

We are both have CHL , and we do exercise or right.

Most people are the same , come out to have a good time , family time , party time .
Sometime they just need a little coaching , on how to act in public ???
