Everyone stay where you are - doors locked. This is gonna get dicey but laj and I got it. Nothing to see here folks. Move along.
not really on topic but as an aside. I saw a wood pellet grill in a store you could buy pellets made out of all the woods you are mentioning here.

Remember, we are talking etiquette here, not just campground rules.

Does respect for others mean to stop rude or inappropriate behavior only when asked or to just not behave like that in the first place?
I agree sometimes I get to a campground late. I try to be as quiet as possible but to be honest diesels are not the quietest thing in the world. My wife uses a walky talky to back me in but she she is outside talking loud over the noise of the diesel.

I worked evening shifts for a good part of my life and I usually stay up until between midnight and 2am. I sleep late and a lot of times we do not get up until 9 or 10am. How is my making noise any different when I come in than the person that gets up at 6am goes out to walk the dog banging doors and getting everything loaded up so they can leave. I get woke up just the same as the people at midnight do.

The point I am making is that we are all camping in an area with other people. Making noise is something that is going to happen whether you come in late or leave early. People just need to try and be reasonable or move to another campsight. When I want total quiet I go home to my farm in the middle of the Ozark mountains where I rarely hear anything other than the frogs in my pond. Which by the way are a lot noisier than anyone setting up or taking down camp that I have heard

Ditto. Especially when I'm on vacation.

Whoa! 6am is NOT a normal wake up time for most people! My normal wake up time is 9am and if someone woke me up at 6am I would be very angry. From most people I talk to about 7-8am is closer to a NORMAL wake up time.

Vacation, working, 4 hours sleep, 7 hours sleep. 6:30AM is the wake up time it doesn't matter if there's an alarm is set or not. In fact if I'm on vacation I'm usually up earlier cause I don't want to waste any of the day.

guess if you sleep the day away till 9 most people have got on with it way before you are able to get going. if I'm traveling to a specific destination I'm on the road by 6, with plenty of others as well.

6AM is my normal wake up time when I have to get up to go to work, not when I'm camping, I like to sleep in a bit when I can.

You may consider it "sleeping the day away" but I consider it sleeping until I can function properly. Safety comes first! I CAN get up at 6 am (with 2 alarms to wake me up) but I would surely fall asleep trying to drive. I get up around 6:30 during rallies but I usually come back to the motorhome and have to take a nap. Otherwise I am in a "fog" for the rest of the day.

4:00 am is normal for me but so is living in my house. When I am camping I an neither living in my house nor am I getting up at 4:00am. To some of you fill timers this lifestyle is "normal". To the rest of us it is a get away from the normal, the rat race we deal with every day. It is our vacation.
