    Really, isn't that where all the dirty business is done? Public Restrooms?

    Six kids later it's apparent to us; where there's a will, there's a way. Amazing, Deb's grandparents lived in a dugout in New Mexico at the turn of the century. If you're not familiar, it's built partly underground by scooping out a hole as big as your house (small 20x20 and building very short walls above ground with a roof. Timber is hard to find out on the plains. And, they raised a large family in this spartan structure. How'd they do it? If there's a will, there's a way. BTW, privacy curtains are there for a reason. :p

    OK.....loud movie on TV (don't judge) or earplugs for them and privacy curtains.....on a side note. ...until my awning was damaged the add-a-room added a private/ comfortable area late evenings...[}:)]

    It has been great to watch this thread. We had 5 kids at the beginning of this thread. Now we have 6 and 4 of them are mostly grown. We have yet to go camping alone. But it will happen soon.

    I haven't looked at this thread in a couple years, so someone else may have already mentioned this, but DW and I found the picnic table in the middle of the night a suitable solution.

    We make a deal. If either of us makes a peep, we have to stop. It's a powerful motivator. It's different, but I can usually ring the bell. Makes for a nice exercise in self control.

    I will give the same answer that I gave way back in the beginning. Get a roll of pennies keep one out, that makes 59 cents, scatter them all around the camp site grounds. tell the kids not to come in until they have found all 50 pennies.

    Wasn't camping but it was a condo in the mountains. Took a friend, his gal and her friend. At some point I just passed from exhaustion not being able to sleep with the two love birds. They were in a loft that overlooked the living room. Her friend got even less sleep. In the morning there was a comment or two made to them. Then dead pan I looked at her raised my hand up with all five finger spread out, "Well I lost count at five." Never have I seen a 40 year old woman turn beet red and drop to the floor in the fetal position.

    Thought long and hard about commenting on this but here it goes. Our first PUP was back in the early 80's. Children were 8 and 5. Each time we got to the campground, they would help with the setup and after it was done, they'd run off to the playground. That was our "Happy" time. But one time we camped with out the children but with friends, my wife had a bit too much wine. At the end of the evening, she attacked me and with friends camped on each side of us in tents, we had our "Happy" time. And yes, we heard about it the next day.

    Of the different things I'm thinking about while considering going cross country in a PUP with our 4 kids, this one hasn't crossed my mind. I'd suppose the wife and I would wait for kids to fall asleep and "take care" of these marital things quietly then, as we mostly do now in a small house with small kids, always prepared that love-making might have a "pause" or two if kids wake up.

    I have been absent from this forum for many years. I love the fact this thread is still going.
