LOCUST INFESTATION

overcast 77 °F

Weekend campers in tents ⛺️!!! They come in big groups and squeeze together in tents ⛺️ in one location with a central eating shelter thrown in for good measure.The whole campgrounds are quiet except for them and they are ALWAYS right next to us every Friday and Saturday night and God help us on Sunday on holiday weekends like the last Presidents weekend. Right now it's 7:30 am and you can hear crackling open beers 🍻,chopping wood and constantly and I mean constantly laughing πŸ˜‚ with intermittent hard coughing. Last night they had two huge spotlights lighting up half the park and sky. These type of campers are always surrounded by chairs, tables, coolers, and old food with lots of empty beer and pop cans. I'm surprised we haven't been visited by the local bear 🐻 yet! All the soda pop morning to night is to jack up the younger kids and maybe even the baby for our viewing entertainment . Right now the kids are in a argument over something insignificant. O, did I mention I'm stirring my hot coffee β˜•οΈ with my sunglasses 😎 because of a lack of utensils at this moment. Feels great to vent almost like I have control of a uncontrollable situation .So how's your morning starting out?

Aren't there quiet hours? Can't you ask them to quiet down at night and turn their lights off?

By the way, I'd much rather have a bunch of locusts than a bunch of loud campers

Well Shannon the sad truth is after a full day starting at sunrise which is 7am we are beat and barely awake at 9pm and quiet time is 11pm so we have to put up with it until after 11 then mary calls the ranger who comes out 45 min later. Also the current neighbors start their loud dumb stuff at 7 am so we constantly have to be on the move away from the site,really pisses me off!

Yeah, that's why we avoid campgrounds now...People are so loud and it's not relaxing. Hence all the backpacking. I don't care if bears sniff our tent as long as they're quiet πŸ™ƒ

Good earplugs will save your sanity. I can't sleep without them, especially when there are noisy campers nearby.
