RV got tagged

I've got a new one. I've been camping with my own rig for over 25 yrs. I've had my current rig since '01. I mainly camp the Sierra, Owens Vly, and high desert of California. This Thanksgiving while camping at Blackrock Cmpgrd in Joshua Tree NP our rig got tagged while we were in camp. It was dark, we were hanging out by the fire, the kids were running around and we(4 families) were going to and from our rigs. The punks did it on the dark side of the camper with us just feet away and we never knew a thing. 4 other rigs that we didn't know got it also. It was one of them that called it to our attn. I was pissed. As I went looking around the camp I was asking myself what I'd do if I caught the slippery little bastard. Ring his neck? Drag him around to see if he was camping with his parents? Tie him to a Joshua Tree until the ranger arrived? Or wash his mouth out with the spray paint he used- or they used. I guess it was better than getting ripped off but that's never happened to me either. The ranger that responded said that was a 1st for him and he'd been there a long time. So at least it wasn't common there. Good thing because we really liked it there and plan to go back. What do you guys think? Oh, we scrubbed it off right away with wd40 so they didn't get to enjoy their work.

I think it stinks. Sorry that happened to you but even more sorry it happened at all. Your list didn't come close to covering the things I would have (wanted to) do to the little twirp.

Do you know yet how tough it will be to get off?

Wow, that is terrible. Sorry you got tagged. Don't know what we would do if it happened to us. Hope you somehow find whoever did it.

Not cool!! The patents of the kid should have asked him or her why they are bringing spray paint on a camping trip. Not cool at all. I feel bad and hope it was removed.

Assuming you meant parents, from what I've witnessed over the years, lost control of their kids before 1st grade.

In days of old when kids got bold and did things they should not do
The wood shed was where they went to chat and get come-uppens too.

But alas, today you give the brat what he deserves and it's "Hello Judge, No, I do not feel I abused my child.. I was mearly punishing him for wrongdoing" and time in jail for child abuse.

THAT, is the problem.

Of course, given enough time the brat turns 18, and gets to talk to that judge himself.... Then he can join his old man in jail.
Home is where I park it!

If you ever do catch one of these rectums--take their can of spray paint and spray them (head including ears and hair) until the can is empty. Then make them wait until it is dry. If law enforcement shows up because they complained show them your coach "paint job" or pics if you were able to remove it.

I am not sure why most posters believe the parents were there. This problem is not just confined to young kids, but older kids too. They have enough money (from drug deals or whatever) to drive themselves to places like this and tag it to make it their own. This is what makes them feel they are big and important in society.

We were paintballed one time on US27 in central Florida. Didn't even know it until we pulled over for a rest stop. Turned on the water pump and was able to rinse it off. I suppose the geniuses that did it figured with the size of our target, that they couldn't miss.
