Had a flashback. Years ago, My DW and I camping with a buddy and his wife. We were in bed when the local bars closed and a group came and set up right next to us and continued to party till dawn. My buddy and I were early risers so needless to say we were in ill humor the next morning. We were standing at our fire drinking our morning coffee when I suggested we should make some noise to get back at the partiers. My buddy smiled and went to his truck then disappeared into the woods. Suddenly an explosion occured behind the campsite. Then another. Surprising how quickly people with hangovers can pack and leave when M-80 firecrackers are interrupting their sleep. Lost my buddy a few years ago but many fine memories.

The problem is with the younger people....It's a me attitude" and it is getting worst every year. When they cut through my site I stop them and make them go around. I find too that most of them do not know how to read. They are given campground rules to read, but they don't. There is no excuse for stupity....

I try to pick a site that backs up to a wooded area if possible. Usually state parks fit the bill. I live in the city suburbs, and camp to get away from traffic and the busy life......The last thing I need is a barking dog or a bunch of collage kids ripping & roaring it up....next door.

You are making an assumption that they can read.

It's not just college kids, it is little kids that their parents have NOT taught them any better. We almost hate summer because of the "kids" noisey kids that have no manners, and parents that think its ok to let the little buggers run lose.
This summer is planed out, weekends are all at "secret" areas you know that camping spot you tell no one about

We never travel during July and August for two reasons. The campgrounds are generally crowded and the wee and big buggers are running amuck.
I enjoy it more when the professional RVers are out there. It's much more civil.

One of my pet peeves is the 'mother of the year', several sites down, screeching at her 'lil darlins constantly, making idle threats she never follows through on, if they continue some behavior she finds bothersome. Meantime, whatever the kids are doing I can't see, it doesn't bother me, but her...

I agree Jay. Idle threats soon cause respect to turn into contempt for rules and laws. No parent is doing their offspring a favor by doing so. My Dad said it once and asked if I understood; the next time I heard it I was in the woodshed, and him with his razor strop.

I know what you mean Ray. My mother was the family disaplinarian. There was no such thing as an idle threat, and we knew it. One warning was all it took.

When I was about 8, and the oldest of the 4 kids (a 5th came along later) my dad was ill and my mother took all four of us, toddler to 8, across country by air. As we were getting off the plane one of the stewardes' (they weren't yet 'flight attendants) commented to my mother how they all cringed when she got on with 4 small kids, but had to compliment her on how we all sat quietly through the entire flight and were no problem or disruption. What that stewardes didn't know was, we had our orders!

We were at a resturant one time with our two oldest. An older woman came over and commented on their good behaveor. I told her we were here to relax too and if they were not well behaved they would not be there.Nothing like a screaming kid during dinner.

My pet peeve is CG's that believe all camp sites must have fire rings. Small sites should not allow camp fires. Many of these fire rings are located next to their neighbor's RV and not their own. They didn't put them there, the CG did.

Oh those were the days! I too remember crossing my Dad, and Mom on only a few occasions because I knew there would be consequences. Today, there are none. You can threaten all you like, but raise your hand to your kid and one call to CPS (child protective services) and your in jail for neglect. The outcome we are seeing today is the "me" generation. It will only get worse. I wish my kids good luck as they raise theirs.
