It was quiet last year at Buttonwood when I was there, must have been a different crowed. There are bad eggs no matter where you go.

Agree with that one.

I hate that!...

Lately that is one occurrence that has been happening frequently at a number of campsites we have used in the last two years.

In one park it the the way it is designed... to use the showers or laundry room, if you walk around it is extremely long (over a block), and many won't do that. So with this park (since it is an extremely nice park) we make sure we are not on any travel path between laundry, showers, store and pools.

In CA a Seagull swooped down and stole my hotdog right out of my hotdog bun, took me completely by surprise..

Got a new hotdog and moved under the awning...

This comment is for the FWIW department - In my humble opinion, and after being a member of the lifestyle we all enjoy, I find that there is noticeable difference between RVers and campers. I know this may be construed as generalizing, but I believe it to be accurate - 'nuff said!

Wifey loves her 23 pound Pixiebob cat. Wilbur is 12 years old, very laid back and responds only to her. He walks on a harness/leash arrangement she bought for a dog.
She used to ask me to walk him but he refused and so did I. Quite a sight though to see them strolling along.

This is actually a great point. Some weekend (rabble rousing) campers also have RVs but their expectations of an RVing weekend can be far different from those who use theirs to tour vast areas of the country. They "just don't get out much" and feel they have to party all weekend I guess.

Similar differences exist between "RVers" and full timers, IMHO. Those who full time might not be as prone to sitting around a campfire every night and can sometimes be seen as anti social because of it.
