My problem is I go to bed around 9PM and get up between 3 and 4AM.  Mix in a couple of wake ups in between.  Any un-natural noise and I'm up and ready for fight or flight!  That nudist campground I go to the owner gave me a key to the front gate so I can head out about 4:30AM for a paper and coffee!  But I do it as quiet as a mouse.

I know a lot of people like to use a diesel powered tow vehicle...but do they have to be 'warmed up' in the pre-dawn for an hour.  And then revved a 'few' times just to make sure that everyone within a quarter mile knows that they own a diesel?

Camping in the Tetons a few years ago we were treated to two diesel TVs reved up for over an hour trying to get the batteries in their trailers charged up.  The did quit at 10:00PM.

    At last years Midwest rally in Weston Bend State Park just north of Kansas City the Quiet Police (campground host) had to make a visit at 10 PM to tell those noisey R-PODDERS  that it was quiet time.

Maybe we should organize into chapters, like the Sons of Anarchy.

How about playing football, baseball, etc. in an open "play area".....away from the crowded campsites?
It's very discouraging to have stuff like that bouncing off of my truck & camper - after having had to work so hard to pay for them.

I have to believe that people who have dogs that bark all night must be deaf or are comatose when they sleep. We have been kept up all night more than once by campers whose dogs simply did not stop barking.
Many of these dogs also bark at other campers who may come within a couple of hundred feet from their campsite.
I trained my dogs to be silent on command.

I have threatened more than once to bring my biggest speakers with and aim them at the offenders and blare the loudest thumping music at the offenders as soon as their dogs begin to bark in the night.
