I have seen the rude and the too cool for me. But we have always enjoyed our time camping. We speak and if the don't reply we don't bother them again. Some people just having a bad day or mad at the wife or husband. Never know what people have going on in their life's.

From what I have seen, most of the people in Motor homes never come out of their RV's. We were at the beach camping in Quebec a fews years ago and the campground was full of them. Not friendly at all.

Our youngest son's Kindergarten teacher taught her class "RESPECT" It stuck with me that she would do that & it was 20 years ago.......... That's the bottom line.

I don't worry about what others think, we go to get away & relax whether it's for a week or a weekend......... most people are great...... a few not so much..... But we live in the country so its nice to be around people........ Its nice to be away from work. I try not to sweat the little things.... as I too often deal with people that go to work full well intending to go home that night but can't.

I am a people watcher we are all basically the same. We all had to learn to set up & take down our camps. But did have to help the guy that caught his arm in his manual awning he seemed to be in serious pain.

I really like looking at the old (much over 10 year) campers I like the survivors the 1958 Spartan was one of the coolest ..... Don't look at the 100K plus coaches much......... Definitely hate the people that turn their noses down at the people with old , & not so pretty campers. We were there once.

Try not to put anyone in a group, they definitely are not all the same. I met a multimillionaire once & I would thought he did not have a cent. He was just like everyone else.

Try not to sweat the few rude people, we will probably never see them again.........

Having spent a career in the biz-jet business, I can completely agree!

Old cliche

One of the best cliches I have ever heard is, "The smaller the country, the longer the national anthem." This applies to people who put on a front as compensation for their own insecurity or by doing things to draw attention to themselves. Their I's are too close together. Wealthy people who attempt to be snobs are also like some of those small countries and have to flaunt their wealth because they don't have anything else that attracts real friends and honest respect. I rarely see this in the folks I meet camping and that is why I enjoy it so much. Some of the most interesting and solid people I have met are the ones with the second-hand TTs or the MH that is 20 yrs. old.

DaveandSue. I spoke with Sgt.Dave of the DPD and he stated waving should be saved for the campground. Eyes always on the roadway.

After 57 years on earth (about 45 as a camper) I find some of the nicest people I have ever met are campers. You can find snobs in Wal-Mart just like you can find them at restaurants or campgrounds & I find them to be the exception rather than the norm. We started with a tent followed by 2 & 3 tents as the family grew, then an old pop up followed by a 21' travel trailer & now a 30' travel trailer. I disagree with the observation that those with 5'ers & motorhomes look down on others & if you encounter one that does it is probably because that's the way they act even when they aren't camping. There are always a few bad apples no matter where you go, but all in all I'd rate my fellow campers as the cream of the crop!

We camp as often as possible. We have a camp ground 4 miles from home when we are burned out and need to just get away.
I find that most campers are NOT snobs and find they enjoy helping others As they have been there.
Enjoy the journey!
