Travelling solo, what I really appreciate is when I'm backing into a new site that is at a tight angle and especially after dark, is if someone comes and offers to spot for me. I have people just watching me and not offer, sometimes I think they're jealous/ or cop an attitude because I'm driving a Mercedes Sprinter RV.
I am just the reverse, not looking for a wife! But I agree about the dogs.

1 general "rule" that I read about a few years ago; if someone is sitting outside near their rv and their back is facing the road(this could be other campers as well), they don't usually want to be disturbed. If they are sitting facing the road, they are welcome to interaction.

The BOSS sometimes comes back from the laundry and tells me all about some lady she met while washing clothes. Of course, this is just generalized conversation but it sometimes can lead to getting information on places they have seen, parks they have stayed in, restaurants they have eaten at. Sometimes little tidbits of info can make/break your traveling experiences.

I'll say this since this person no longer frequents FRF. I posted to a thread a few years ago from a person looking for some info from an area we go to often. He thanked me by PM and we shared email addresses and we have been passing emails back and forth for 5 years and have even camped together twice. When we see each other, it's as if we have known each other for years and have only seen each other twice! He recently sold his Palamino and inherited a SOB MH. But by being cordial and helpful to the original post here on FRF, we have gained a great friendship.

Glad to be out of that mess!

I hate all phones. A ringing phone will send me through the roof. It's an irrational phobia and I can't help it. Text me if you want to talk to me. I normally turn the phone ringer off.

OK.......Where were we?
Sounds like PTSD to me.......

That's when you go to the office, camp host, park ranger or who ever is in authority and get the mess stopped. Bad reviews on a park are a consideration when others are trying to decide where they are staying in the future. Barking dogs are just as bad as rowdy kids who intrude on your peace. But if you don't report/complain, there is no chance of correcting the situation. Now, if you are staying in a park that caters to kids(Jellystone, etc.) you might have to expect some running, screaming kids. Remember, you were a kid once. I wouldn't confront the individuals so as not to start other problems. But if they apologize, I would certainly thank them.

We are seasonals and the campground owner sometimes tells us to 'correct' transients if they break the certain rules. Not all rules just certain ones they want seasonals to help enforce.

Yah..no thanks. I am not going over to someone and tell them they are breaking the rules. One..it is not my job and two..makes me look like a seasonal douche.....albeit I am a douche :-).....but don't need to prove it.

Plus it is a good way to get into an argument....watched it happen a few weeks ago...and that was a seasonal telling a new seasonal. Now they hate each other...and it was a minor thing. Nope..not me..not interested.

If it is an annoying dog or kid we text the CG owners and let them deal with it.
