Obviously half the people in the CG were streaming videos, totally wiping out the service for the rest of us!

Come on folks! This is ridiculous! Show a little consideration for your fellow RV'ers! If you want to stream video then you should be willing to pay for your own data!
I've been to campgrounds with excellent signal strength and it showed me connected, BUT nothing. Then after an eternity, a screen pops up asking for the password, or even sillier, it simply indicated I was connected for the day and presto, I was! I hate campground WiFi's and about the only time I connect to one is when I want to download a movie......Just kidding, just kidding!

Just a though, did you not also have to open your browser and log in to the parks Wi-Fi home page? Often this happens and the log in page is nowhere to be found. I have had to reboot the device and then voila the log in page appears.

Cigarette Butts! I hate to see them all over the ground at some of our most beautiful scenic wonders. Why? Why? Why? And here at our very nice campsite with a beautiful view of Pymatuning Reservoir there must be a hundred of those disgusting white things littering the ground. UCK!

Ever seen a tour bus carting around a bunch of Asian's once they stop for a break or at a tour stop? There's not enough room in the smoking section to fit them all.

I am married to a lovely Asian but she has never smoked.

How about the trashed State Park campsites when 5 or 6 sites are occupied by hosts? CO has the best sites, but NE state parks must be the worst. I have to get a shovel and clean the fire pit myself, and pick up all the junk left there.

Last time the area around the campfire was littered with camper interior cabinetry - and the fire pit was used to burn the cupboard doors leaving all the screws and hinges in our walk area. Don't even want to know what was going on there. The year before that it was staples from pallets or something.

No, there was no log-in or passcode required. I didn't have any trouble early in the morning, it was just late afternoon and night!

I was in a campground like that in Columbus, Indiana. Even in the lounge area I couldn't go anywhere on their wifi. I wound up using my phone as hot spot to check a few things. Then discussing things with the owner's son (I was having mechanical problems) and he told me that his mother was grumbling about my situation (transmission problems and no reverse) so I decided to leave and made it back to Minnesota.

That's why I only smoked Lucy Strike, no filter. Finish then field strip. If it's too hot to field strip, it's too hot to throw down.

Fortunately, after 40-odd years, I quit cold turkey in `05.

One that really irritates me is that some drivers insist on hugging the center line, especially when going around sharp curves! I try to hug the outside line around curves, because I know there's probably gonna be some idiot hugging the center!
When those traveling 5mph over in the left lane want to go faster than the car in front of them and you get 5 or more less than a cars length between them all. If I'm in the center lane i move over, slow down and put as much distance as i can between us and them.

I always say to DH or myself: Awww, look at all those poor people who still have to hurry to their jobs and appointments! Bless their hearts :-)

So glad we don't have to hurry anymore :-)
