OK. Here goes. After years of all work and no play, decided to go camping for the first time in my life. Everything was great, until the next morning. Sitting across from 2 families, in nice motor homes, drinking my morning coffee, when the kids started brushing their teeth and rinsing with bottled water, and spitting it right there on the ground beside their picnic table. Then the parents came out nad and did the exact same thing. So goes my morning coffee. Does this routine at camp grounds, or am I just overreacting?

Well, I usually brush mine in the trailer but when we tent camped that was our only option, except not close to the picnic table. You will see a lot of different things camping though so you will probably need a somewhat open mind at times.

By the way, I see this is your first post, welcome to iRV2!

That is a little odd although I have seen stranger. We are only in a popup, but we brush our teeth at the sink inside. When we were in a tent, we either used the bathhouse or brushed them next to the water spigot. I would not want them spitting near where we would be walking or eating.

I would just let it go and move on though. Just turn your chair the other way and listen to the birds chirping.

This is a real nice, well maintained camp ground, w/a bath house on every lane. I'll take your guys advice and will move on and keep an open mind, and also my shoes on. Thanks for the input.

Granicus, welcome to irv2
Kids always brushed in camper or bath rooms would have made a mess around our camp site, to many of them. Welcome to camping in years to come you will be able to write a book on some of the things you will see, enjoy it all and post your thoughts.

Yikes....WELCOME to iRV2 just the same!!

I agree with the "turn the other cheek" crowd....

Sort of reminds me of the folks that clean out their sewer hose with the same fresh water hose they had hooked up to the camper....

Thanks for the welcome RV. I'm not going to let this first time experience keep me from going again. How'd I find this site? When I decided I was going to start doing something for myself...camping...I just started surfing a few sites. This one was easy to navigate and seemed to have everything I needed (information, humor and the people seemed so friendly).

That is one of the fun things about camping! You see some crazy things sometimes. I once was at a state park and saw a bunch of guys sitting in lawn chairs looking at a bush...then when I approached I found that they were scoring the fight between the couple on the other side of the bush! What a hoot. They were funny to watch. I have to admit that I hung around for a little while just so I could score points for the woman who was yelling.
just enjoy and ignore what you don't like...it is very entertaining at times.

Good thing you wern't on a trip with us once. I went to a bathouse to take a shower, and when I got done with my shower, someone came in and used the shower I just showerd in as, how can I say this nicely? A pot to P in?

We traded our popup in the following Friday on a rig that allows us to take our own shower with us everywhere we go.

Well said - keep an open mind & your shoes on. It's a better time out there if we don't sweat the small stuff.
