    I remember Durango, some yahoo started his bike at 0600 and let it warmup. This was where you could park your bike at your tent. P.O.'d me to say the least. Maybe not parking at your tent will be a Godsend, particularly after an intense night of barley therapy. Be considerate of others. This is NOT your own private idaho. The countdown is on. T minus .....

    bagpipes

    no, the worst ever was the horse's patootie in redmond who played a bagpipe cd on his k-bike stereo until damn near midnight. only thing worse than bagpipes is RECORDED bagpipes.

    he gave up before we organized a task force to confiscate his cassette.....

    At midnight there must have been a bonfire burning somewhere. If ya couldn't get the cassette, well throw the whole bloody bike in the fire.
    To top it off, the jerk and his buddy were hollering back and forth across the campground to eachother. If I only had a gun...

    Horror Stories

    At Rhinebeck a guy unzipped our tent to tell my wife to do something about my snorring. I guess he doesn't have ear plugs. At the time I did snore quite loudley, but please. I've been told that some fellow campers and I have snored in synch.

    We were at the Adirondack rally a few years ago and there was a guy camped in one of those big cabin tents. At 10am, he was still completely passed out asleep. He was snoring really loudly, in what I can only describe as "cartoon snoring". It sounded just like the snoring you hear in cartoons. Someone had hung a sign on the outside of the tent:

    Eviction Notice.

    What does "quiet" mean?

    I always try to camp in the quiet area. Mostly because I don't want to hear drunken screams. Everytime I'm amazed at the people who camp there because they want to go to sleep with the sun but have no problem waking everyone else up at 6 AM.
    For crying out loud show the same courtesy in the morning you expected the previous night. If you have to leave at daybreak don't park between the tents and when you pack up don't announce it. I never would have thought 8 AM was sleeping late.

    He had a chainsaw in the other hand at the Damn Yankee Rally a couple years ago.

    funny now...

    5 a.m.

    A kid is opening the bathroom door and letting it slam. Repeatedly.

    A friend yells at him, "knock it off. What are you a moron?"

    Turns out the child was mentally challenged. Where were his parents?!?
