I always like Sunday afternoons at a state Park because most of the people have packed up and gone home. its not that the people are a problem, in fact everyone seems real nice. I guess is mostly that there are so many of them.
About the only complaints I have is having to listen to other people's music and their barking dogs. I don't mind hearing people making noise in fact hearing people hammering in their tent stakes, talking to their friends, and the kids laughing and yelling at each other are sounds of people having fun, and those are good sounds.
But loud music and barking dogs are two things that I could definitely live without. I don't ever remember listening to music when I was out in my boat. First of all there wasn't too many ways you could have music in a boat and second of all a boat just didn't seem to be a place where you needed to listen to music. But all that certainly has changed because apparently now boats come equipped with stereo systems, big speakers, and large amplifiers.
Some people don't realize how far sounds carry over the water. You can pretty much have a conversation with someone 50 yards away in another boat and never have to raise your voice. So imagine what it's like next to a medium-size Lake with 50 boats out there maxing out there amplifiers. I guess that everyone has to turn up their volume to drowned out the other boats volume and that continues until everybody's amplifier is maxed out.
I guess other people's barking dogs are pretty much at the top of everybody's list of things to hate. There are very few things in life that will irritate me more than a barking dog. After a couple of hours of nonstop barking I'm not sure who should be thrown in the lake the dog or the owner, usually I choose both. The good thing is since my home is on wheels I can pack up and move. But it bothers me that I should have to be the one to move, especially since it seems like dogs outnumber the people in the RVing community and I'll probably have a dog next to me when I get to my new camping spot.
But all of the weekend people with their music and their dogs have gone back to their real homes now so the only people left are folks like me, either full timers or long term campers and were all pretty quiet and try to keep a low profile so we don't give the Rangers any reason to kick us out, or worse, not welcome us back again.
