Consideration is usually egocentric. One person does not like a flickering tv, but just loves his flickering fire. The next does not like the sound level, but his barking dog is fine with him. The early departure irritates the late partiers that irritated everyone late at night. And, so it goes.

I agree. A few lights when you are setting outside so you don't trip over stuff is OK but, please keep the light on your campsite not shining on mine. I prefer to set by the fire in the dark.

This keeps coming up and it probably is not going to change. Some people have no consideration for other people. We just have to live with it, not like it.

Why we always camp primitive and no lights on our RV outside when parked. I have a nice LED flashlight if I need to see.

Personally, I believe those with all the lights on are scared of the bogeyman.

Some people are wound way to tight! Lighten up!
It Called Festive!
A celebration of sorts. The joy of camping!
You all ever been beach camping?? What about all the twirly things spinning in the wind? The festive fish spinners? I enjoy it and appreciate the joy of it!

And now with all the little solar light twirly spinning nautical theme things, Its allot of fun!

And in reality,, If it Irks you,, you have chosen the wrong Hobby! Maybe the Desert is for you? But to be honest, when we camp in the desert I have an LED flag pole topper that changes colors! It serves two maybe three purposes.
Its a camp locator when you are out on your dirt bike/quad/or side by side.
Its patriotic (red/white/blue) and its FESTIVE! AND,, It can run all night!

And if that bothers you----Don't ever camp at a NASCAR Event, Its always a FESTIVE event!

P.S. Be happy you are not my sticks and bricks neighbor, I have them in my back yard and some in the front! HA!

That is why I boondock 99% of the time, I don't have to put up with the inconsiderate clowns.

You'd all hate me, we light up the trees in our campsite with the red and green laser lights, always get a lot of compliments on them.
