This happened to us last month in Gatlinburg.

Thank you.
You might try some of these "bark stop" gadgets. According to the reviews sometimes they work great and sometimes they don't work at all. It likely depends on how much of a knuckle head the dog is.

Amazon.com: bark stopper

I have one kinda, sorta like this. It doesn't work with Sadie even though it is on a low-fat 9 volt battery diet.

I love it how if we want to spend time with our family, get something accomplished, have a headache or just don't want to listen to somebodies life story, we're just supposed to stay home... wow!

Agreed, Pilots like most Rv'er are just a little different. maybe a little more considerate of others I think. Run with a group of both, can't have enough fun. Will be at Oshkosh on the 2nd for 2012 Eaa Airventure. hope to see some of you. Bryan

Laughs? Hey, this is a serious subject. There are a lot of people out there that need help with their social skills. They haven't a clue how to deal with people that bug them. If they did, they would't post such silly problems.

We've spent the last five days at a CG where no one talked to us. It looked like either a lot of long term people or a place to park while playing in the surrounding tourist stuff. I was highly disappointed. I had my red sharpie, eggs and kimchi ready.

Tris, there is another thread about people who are too uppity to talk to others. Please post your "feeling rejected" comments there.

When in the Army in Korea, I had to work with a bunch of kimchi breaths. We use to taunt them by making phony buggers out of rubber cement and walking up to them with an inch long "bugger" hanging out of our noses. They would run out of the room screeming.

You could just buy that triple decker on "Outrageous RV's" and go to the third level of your own private deck and not have to see anybody.

It's cheaper to put a paper bag on your head when you walk around the camp if you do not want anyone talking to you.

This works for any time of the year except Halloween. If you do this during Halloween you run the risk of someone trying to give you candy which is even worse.

Don't forget to poke holes in the sack so you can see where you are going. Otherwise, you run the risk of falling down and having to deal with someone who may try to help you up.
