That is a rarity of all rares!
We don't smoke, however if I did, I would have a problem with someone coming to my campsite and complaining about it. It's the OUTdoors--------------------------
Just bought some new stogies today.
Borrow me one.....think I'm camped next door to tfisher...lmao
Since we never camp in campgrounds if we can help it smoke is never an issue. I'm wondering, however, how smoke is different than noise or bright light. If something that you are doing is bothering your neighbor isn't it the decent thing to do to try to get along? Making a comment that the guy would need EMS isn't funny, it's a sad fact that that's the attitude of many people. " if you don't like it go to hell". Makes me glad that I can always camp miles from anyone.
I must of missed something. I don't see any posts where tfisher is talking about knocking on someone's camper to complain.
Agreed. I see posts all the time where people are complaining about generators, bright lights, partying late, loud people in the morning, loud people at lunch, loud people at dinner, loud people in general, kids running everywhere, people cutting through campsites, unleashed dogs, loud dogs, big dogs, little dogs, big motorhomes idling in the morning during tear down, huge trailers taking up too much room plus a TV blocking something else, constantly chirping car horns from remote lock/unlocking, headlights on when remote unlocked, loud coupling in tents, smoking, smoky fires due to poor wood choice, loud motorcycles, loud music, constant music, etc. Funny how everyone has something they can complain about against another camper, but as soon as they get in the hot seat it is their right to do whatever it is that people are complaining about. We as a country have lost that good neighborly aspect, and gotten more combative. The art of compromise and civil discussion has become lost to us. Like others I am willing to rearrange my trip a little in order to minimize the discomfort brought on by disruptions to my personal camping style or enjoyment. Take a longer hike, go exploring, watch a movie inside, find a local greasy spoon to try. We all camp as individuals to get away from some aspect of our lives, and collectively become part of a greater community, temporary as it may be, when we set up camp. Like any family there are going to be issues between people, but how we deal with them is what defines us. My way is not always the right way, and vice versa.
Pull up a chair and have a chat. I can't share a cold one or offer a smoke, as I do not partake in either activity, but I can offer friendly conversation, and perhaps something tasty from the kitchen. If I have any left a cold root beer from the cooler is our preferred camping beverage (and usually more of a craft root beer, so something a little more special than normal fare). Keep the canvas up, the tires down, head for the shade in the summer and sun in the winter and keep the good vibes flowing.
Some people should just smoke a joint and chill! Makes the scenery better to.
You make it to 10? You're my hero!
thank you lol
I grew up with second hand smoke from my parents, it caused a lot of lung problems for me, because of this, I prefer no cigarette or cigar smoke at all, I can handle
camp fires, but hate the smell of both cigarette and cigar smoke. doesn't mean that you can't enjoy walking the ring smoking, I'd never say anything and would
go into the pup if it overwhelmed me.
Momabear here likes to watch her HALLMARK channel on TV with all the old stuff. LT Columbo sure has a big ole lite cigar doing his thing haha...
I grew up with heavy smokers but never did it my self. My wife is a heavy smoker... You know how that always turns out... I will pass on from the secondary smoke before she will....
Okay so this is resurrecting an old thread I am sure, but I just want to chime in here.
There are all sorts of smells that come along with camping, and I grew up camping with family and friends, some of whom were cigar / pipe smokers, so to me it's a normal experience. I too, rarely, but I do enjoy a good cigar on a quiet night far away from the crowds. I will usually stroll out to the docks or whatever they've got, away from the campsites, where the smoke will dissipate long before the smell gets to anyone. More for my sake. At those distances I can't hear them. I am usually sipping a warm beverage in a tumbler and slowly drawing on the cigar and just enjoying the peace...
Now having said THAT, if I were in a more crowded campground and knew that folks would be getting a breeze of my cigar smoke, no chance I would light up.
I unfortunately often get instant migraines around cigars, the instant I catch wind I have to high tail away or I'm gonna be a miserable person. If it was constant wafting into me I might say something but I would think that would normally not be the case.
