Arriving at 5:45pm is not a late night arrival. If you need outside lights to extricate yourself from a bad situation, use all you need. If you disturb someone enough to draw them out, ask them to hold a light and stand next to a boulder.
Honestly, I've found most campers are very understanding and helpful.

Stealth arrival is appropriate after 9-10pm.

After spending the winter snow birding and having stayed in nine different campgrounds; we have not had any other problems with large boulders.

None of the places we have stayed had boulders of a huge size and so many of them as the first campground where we stayed.

We have polished our skills. We had one spot on Marathon Key that was barely big enough for us. The other campers in our row came out to direct and to persuade residents to move a few golf carts and cars so that we could get into our site.

We have met many nice people in our travels and are planning a summer trip to Calgary, AB and Montana.

We are very grateful for all of the advice we have received on this list and on the Nu-Wa owners list as we bought a used HH LS.

We love touring the country this way and hope to enjoy many years to come.

If you haven't already learned, whenever you perfectly back into a site on the first try, there's never anyone around to witness it. But be sure, if you have a problem, the whole campground population will suddenly appear.

That's not always true. The first time I took my rig out for its shake down trip the campground host told me my spot was very hard to back into and asked if I wanted them to spot me? I said, nah I drive professionally, and went off on my own. As soon as I pulled up everyone near by came running to watch. I nailed it in one move. They all applauded.

That was a great way to start off what has become a truly wonderful recreational lifestyle. Remember, this is suppose to be fun, enjoy it! The only thing to take seriously is safety, all the rest should just be a ball!
