    This is not a poll but a chance to share your grumpiness:Angry:

    The question is "what irritates you when you are camping?"

    At the surefire risk of offending some.... my biggest bug is campervan sliding doors. I am sure you know the sound I mean........ that early morning/late night.....

    Whooooooooooosh....... (you know what's coming)...... CLUNK..... as the sliding door gets flung open or closed.:Doh:

    So???????????????????????

    People.

    On a serious note, there is nothing worse that people chattering late at night. I know we get up early and sit outside having a coffee, watching other Funsters stagger back to their vans at some early hour. Yes YOU Rob1Chelsea1, but that’s all well and good. What I hate is the late night revellers who will go on and on with little thought for others and then complain about those who get up early.
    I agree with Munchie, kids playing ball games. Well kids as a whole need to be banned or placed in a cage and fed only every other fortnight. Grrr I dislike kids on campsites.

    When we were in Grandborough (C & CC) , we pitched in the corner, away from other campers, they have a 6m rule and what happened?
    Yep two turned up on pushbikes, tents, tree huggers, he late 60’s lycra ponytail (bald on top) and her high heels, black dress, boobs hanging out and when she crouched down it left little to the imagination. Even MrsShiftZZ was shocked..
    They were all of 6 feet away, and when I woke up around midnight, he was walking around his tent wearing his lycra and one of those torches strapped to his head (LED are very bright), So I watched him for a while, round and round. So I blasted him with my torch, made no difference..

    So please add old cyclists wearing Lycra and a head torch, along with old ladies who can’t control their outer and dangly bits.

    Oh yes Burstner owners. :Wink:

    Not a lot irritates me but there are a few things that make me smile a lot. Caravan and motorhome snobbisness for one. Don't say it doesn't exist, it does.:Cool:

    I was rather disappointed to get my van back from service to find they'd greased the sliding door mechanism. It was much better when it was a bit rusty, and the lock was badly adjusted which meant I had to have 3 or 4 goes at shutting it properly, each attempt being faster and harder than the previous one.



    It soon shut up the latenight chattering classes.........

    Jeeze Chris, you need help, high heels to prevent her boobs dragging on the floor, forget a Brazillian, think more Amazon Rain Forest, She sat on one of those folding three legged stools, that dissapeared and even the hardy Cave Rescue Team turned that job down.

    Imagine Hillda Ogden crossed with Rangi and then multiplied by crossing the offspring with a deranged uran utang, dressed up as a trannie at a Law Society function then you may be close..

    Still float your boat?

    Goodness me, we are a grumpy bunch aren't we :Laughing:

    OH and I don't have kids. She is less tolerant of badly behaved ones than I am and does get wound up when they are calling/shouting/screaming. Campsites should be relaxing places to be but of course kids will be a bit noisy. The problem is, of course, the parents who just let them get on with it.

    We camped a lot in Germany (lived there ~ 5 years). German children are MUCH better behaved than other nationalities (I'm generalising). I'm embarrassed to say it but the Brits are terrible. If you hear screaming kids and notice the parents either totally ignoring them or screaming back ordering them to be quite (an in turn being ignored by the kids!) then you can be sure there's a GB plate close by.

    We now live in NL and so far, ok. The Dutch are quite a bit more liberal than the Germans so kids get away with more, but do seem to have a LOT more fun at the same time.

    Totally agree with people talking during late nights. We tend to go to bed once the sun is down. Like with the kids, I don't mind too much hearing people but when you are woken at midnight or later by roaring laughter, guitar playing, talking too loud... that is too late in the night. Keep it down or go inside, please.

    Those who take their prejudices onto caravan sites. The main attraction of camping to me is that sites are for the enjoyment of everyone including tree huggers dogs children rich and poor, piss heads and grumpy old gits. Tents have zips and campers have sliding doors and dont forget that A class motorhomes have drop down beds, how annoying can the sound of them be when they hit there base.:Doh:

    Motorhome Snobs! It's a love-hate relationship.

    I don't care if your vehicle is new, or 30 years old - we are all enjoying the same thing on different budgets. It does what you want, how cares?

    What I hate is when people look down their nose at others......as many of you know I used to hire motorhomes. I had a couple of people ask when we were away 'Do you think you will buy one when you are able to?' another was ' Hiring is a good idea for those that are too young to afford their own' and also the 'I have the larger model, of course they do come at a premium price you know, not everyone can afford that level of vehicle'

    What I loved, was bringing them down with a bang! 'I own the hire company, we have a few of various classes though I like to keep around the 20 foot margin as they are easier for inexperienced people to handle. I don't want thier holiday ruined because of an accident claim at the end of it. We have taken this one this week to test it out and make sure everything is working fine'

    Then you leave them stammering a way out of it.:thumb:
