These things are simply courtesies to be shown each other. They apply to ME as well as to my camping neighbors.

Sure I think most of us can ignore the occasional situation without ruining our experience, but at some point, it can easily overwhelm folks.

And a simple reminder is sure better than being that obnoxious camper all season long.

Yes. Good comments. Be considerate.

I like to play some music around 5:00, but I only play quieter music and ask permission first if anyone is nearby. Most people like it and ask for more music.

Last month I was camping in the woods near home. On the second day a large flat bed truck showed up with Texas plates. I went over to meet the new neighbors, a guy and his wife. He was planning to do some mechanical work on the truck in order to get it home. I asked if he was spending the night. He said yes. I asked if he needed any blankets. He said no.

After while I was cooking dinner, and my neighbor came by and asked
"Do you need any help?" Few people have ever asked me that question while camping in 70 years.

The guy and his wife happened to be originally from Mexico. Helping others is a part of their culture.

It's too bad the 'all about me' generation never learned what the word courtesy means.

It's not the age (generation) of the idividual, it's the times we live in (era). I've witnessed 70+ year olds being just as self-centered as young folks, and young folks who have been extremely courteous.

Thank goodness a few of us think alike. If all the items in this thread bugged me I would stay home. Normally I read post like this and just shake my head but this one is something else.

Ok, I just want to add patiance and understanding on both sides. And maybe, if you have that , you can take the time to explain and teach people some courtesies. People dont know what they dont know. My two cents, worth nothing now because of inflation.

Noise and bright light is one thing, we all have fun in different ways ... but at some point in the evening it should become muted. We all need sleep, and loudness keeping folks awake in a campground during the later hours is definitely inexcusable.

One of the objectives of RV.Net is to educate new RVers. Many people ignore campground rules, courtesies or common sense once they leave home. We see it all the time.

The experienced have always educated the newcomers. RVing has some common sense courtesies that others may never had to learn. This thread is in keeping with one of the purposes of RV.Net: Education.
