We live at the beach so we store the camper when y'all do the summer thing. During that time I take the boat out on the Atlantic and chase fish. Once school starts up again we camp during fall, winter in FL, camp in spring and it starts again. That pretty much eliminates my pet peeve ~~ rug rats without boundaries. Dogs are required on a leash as they should be, so should many kids be required until age 21.

So back to my pet peeve of campsites. Some of the older COE parks have some really unusual and very difficult sites to back into. Here’s a photo of a ridiculous layout for a campsite. While the site on the left would be difficult for a trailer or fifth wheel, the one of the right would just about be impossible. Notice how close the pine tree is to the driveway on the left and a bit harder to see is how much the ground drops away from the driveway. The photo was taken a few years back.

In case you’re wondering, this is not a family campsite. If you click on the picture it will get a bit larger and easier to see.

Back from the day that a huge camper was 20 feet in length ....... Our near by state park is similar 99% of the sites are for no longer than 20 foot trailers.................. and built in the 1960s.......... the one "big" site usually has a 12' trailer in it ........... but the new horse site section could easily accommodate a 40' trailer but are not close to being level.......

The campground that we go most often to only allows electric golf carts but if you want quiet not the place to go..........

My pet peeve:
Tractor trailer in left lane I'm in right lane and the idiots trying to emerge onto the interstate while on a cell phone not looking at the on coming traffic...makes for some hairy moments to say the least.😱

Here in MA, its a law that ALL vehicles must have front and rear lights turned on if you need to run your wipers.

I like the daytime running lights.
It eliminates the drivers input!
