Different things stink to different people. I don't like the smell of fish, flowery perfume, burning tires, farts or cabbage, does that mean we should have rules about that or a seperate non-smelling camping area?

I can see how it would be inconvenient for you but taking away peoples rights is a slippery slope.

But even that was better than the time we ended up next to the three 'ladies' who did nothing but scream & cuss at their kids all day and most of the night. They all smoked too. One day of this was all we could take! We moved! When I ran my slides in I found out that they had been throwing their garbage under my rig! Lovely folks.
Under what authority did you enter their paid for site and disturb their way of camping? Do that to some and you probably would have some explaining to do! I can see you rebuilding my fire until I said "you can go now"!!!!

This is why I love those round things that my motorhome sits on. I can move whenever the urge strikes.

I will say though that my observation is that there has to be more smokers per capita in campgrounds than in society in general.

Actually you are not to leave a fire unattended. So he can do it as a hazard.

You've gotten a small snapshot of the situation and you're ready to build a confrontation on what little you know.

Here's the rest:

We got to know them.
We sat around the campfire with them.
We shared snacks and beverages.
They offered us some of the 'special' wood they brought down from Oregon.
There were no confrontations, no problems, and we exchanged email addresses when we left.


I felt absoultly comfortable dousing the fire for them and they didn't seem to mind. It was not an issue.

My ex-wife threw a beer on me once to "douse" me.



I might have deserved it...

I stayed at a campground that did not provide trash cans or dumpsters. Sunday mornings the air was often filled with the smell of burning plastic and trash as people leaving would toss their garbage in the fire ring. I put out several fires at neighboring campsites because of this.

That can get you killed. Better hope they're not armed.

Well, I might suggest that in the future you "fill in the blanks" rather than a general statement of "look at what I did", or are we embellishing the "tale" as we go?

Last winter, the neighbor asked us to move our picnic tbale because we were smoking there and the smoke was going into her RV. We moved the table. Did we care???-- NO. IT IS NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL!

The permanant solution occurred a few months later-- We quit smoking!!
