    Just seeing this for the first time, despite the age of the original post.

    Years ago, we went tent camping at a beach in California, with a co-worker and his family. Our kids were young at the time, and when we bedded down for the night, we had some noisy neighbors that were talking loud and carrying on beyond "quiet time." After waiting for them to figure out that others were trying to sleep, my wife and I finally broke out in a rather loud duet of Tom Lehrer's "So Long Mom, I'm Off to Drop the Bomb."

    When we finished, the campsite was completely quiet for the rest of the night. I think we freaked the neighbors completely out.

    I might have been very tempted to use the same song on that couple. By the way, I might have also mentioned to them that I work in a bomb factory. Let their imaginations do the rest.

    For those unfamiliar with the Tom Lehrer classic:

    This is kind of why we like to camp in state parks. We wouldn't show up that late in such a way to disturb others while setting up regardless of where we're camping, but most state parks don't have the fees, rules, and stipulations associated with staying there. YMMV

    hmm, maybe they should have gone into town and bought a longer extension cord. Geesh Louise. What a miserable life they must have.

    There are some people that just need a good beech slapping to get their attention; those two are the poster children for Campers to Avoid or run out of camp.
    They should get a quiet motel and stay out of campgrounds. In case there is any doubt I am talking about the pushy jerks who were there first.
    I go by the Rule of Three; everyone deserves the first two where an attempt is made to handle a problem quietly and peacefully; if it gets to Three, I have been pushed past the point of reason and refuse to be pushed another inch; get outta my face is next!

    If this had happened to me, I would have probably grabbed my lawn chair, bag of popcorn and sat back and enjoyed the entertainment as my wife handled the situation. She just has a way of putting people in their place. [:D]
