For the most part I've never experience to snobbish attitude towards me. I am one of those weekend Warriors. What I do have a problem with is the college aged people that pull in next to me in a rental Rv no less than 20 people on there site at any given time they have all night long loud party's that keep me up all night

Haven't met any snobs at the rallies (3) I've attended, but sure have @ TT Orlando. The place is full of them.

I agree. I've not picked up on that at all.

We we're weekend campers for years. Finally retired and have a fiver(after trading up from Two TT). We no longer camp on weekends unless it's a destination camp and we're staying a while. I like to leave weekend camping to those who can't go camping any old time they want. I stay away from campgrounds on "major" weekends for the same reason. I never felt anybody snubbed me and I hope like heck no one thought I snubbed them. I felt most campers to be friendly and approachable bunch. Remember, just because someone appears snobby, they could be shy or just very tired and not interesting in visiting other folks.

I think it's the "birds of a feather thing." Rich folk hang together, heavy partyers party together, family groups camp together, etc. The problems often occur when different groups camp near each other and find "their space" invaded. Partyers drinking, loud and cursing next to folks with kids. Or johnny builds his campfire up wind from Rockafellow's land yacht, and smoke disturbs his brandy sipping. So many ways to clash.

The reality is that the majority of people have jobs that only allow them to camp on weekends. I think it is wonderful the people that are retired, and get to camp at there leisure. After working 50 hrs. a week I really look forward to my weekend camping. So instead of being a camping snob and looking down your nose at people that haven't been camping for 20+ years, share your years of wisdom with someone you see doing something wrong. I'm sure they will appreciate it, and you could probably save them from damaging there equipment. Happy Camping, whenever you go!
Listen, if I can hang at the beach in either the red or blue chair, I'll go anyday you want!

P.S. well said

I have seen that in some MH folks. When I do I make it a point to be overly friendly. I hope it drives them crazy.

. .We have found almost all campers to be friendly and very helpful My problem is with campers who are inconsiderate of others. We just got back from 14 days at Tionesta Pa COE. Great campground. Problem was with some tenters who had 5 tents, 4 vehicles, and 3 unleashed dogs on one site. I believe the rules are 2 tents and one vehicle per site. Campground hosts were 2 sites away and said nothing. Rangers drove past and said nothing. I like my beer as much as anybody, but I should not have to pick up Bud cans up saturday morning out of the grass near the fishing spot, not to mention having to watch them p---ing in the parking lot while kids ride past on their bikes. nuf belly aching. Probably have to take care of it myself.

The universal problem with people, is people.

Pogo said "We have met the enemy, and he is us."

Jesus compared humanity to sheep. Not a flattering analogy.

But a quote attributed to Archie Bunker sums it up best, "There is a little bit of me in all of youse."

When we go to the campground, we may leave all our cares behind, but we take who we are with us. Every time. And that explains what's wrong with every camp ground, we are there. We just all need to learn to "Stifle it" as Archie would say.
