Now THAT's a man who knows how to solve a problem!

I would take the money the fence costs and use it to move to a better managed park.

Shop 3M 80-Pack Ultra Soft Disposable Earplugs at Lowes.com
Same here Lorna... except I would never publicly state that Nancy snores.

I gave up trying to sleep through noise a long time ago and went with ear plugs that are a lot like Silly Putty from WalMart and they work great too. I can probably hear the smoke detector with them in but I wouldn't count on the alarm clock... good thing I threw it in the trash when I retired.

Ladies don't snore... that's what I keep telling David. He tells me that I snore, not him... he's stayed up all night to see if he snored!

The plugs I use are like memory foam. Strange, squishy things but they do work well.

I'm waiting patiently for one of the clods we are all talking about to chime in. As long as I'm here I'd love to know what this fascination with campfires from dawn till dusk - and beyond - is all about. I believe that subjecting your fellow campers to a constant barrage of wood smoke is rude IMHO jodann

A wood campfire is not as bad as the guy across from me one time. He would have a smoldering fire going all day burning garbage.

Just a guess - some individuals still feel a connection to the "camping" roots of RVing?? I don't personally do wood fires much, but I do remember our tent camping days back in the 70s.

I just sit back with a smile on my face cause I know any minute my wife will reach her exceeded tolerence level and look after the situation. She usually reaches her brink before I reach mine. I pity any fool who flicks the switch! It usually only lasts a few seconds. She sits down, I take a swig of my drink and say..."Nice one Honey" with a snicker. We never see the issue arise again.
Don't get me wrong, my wife is adorable, but can't stand idiots. I on the other hand utilize my secret weapon. The one that has kept my marriage together all these years......."Selective hearing" LOL

Sounds like most have suffered and have described many of my pet peeves with camping. That dog who never barks - that is until he is left alone for the day - is my biggest CG gripe with folks who cut corners under my awning a close second. The 0-dark thirty idling diesel is far from enjoyment as well. But, I'm trying "tolerance" which to me is a foreign word

I'm probably over sensitive, but how about wind chimes that you have no control over?
