Well I found out this weekend. Camping at the CG this weekend, nobody next to me and one guy across from me. Sitting outside last night having a cocktail and waiting for the charcoal to heat up all of a sudden I hear loud music coming the neighboring campsite. Not just loud, but clear. Closer inspection reveals not a radio, but a guy with a keyboard setup, microphone, amplifier and large speakers. With the rhythm track on the electronic keyboard it sounded like a cross between Hee Haw and Lawrence Welk. Seriously, this guy could have been giving an outdoor concert in the ampitheater ro playing for a graduation or wedding. Im not talking about a guy sitting around the campfire playing aciutstic guitar or harmonica.

It started blowing and the weather looked dicey so they packed up the gear.....I filled the musical void with some XM Classic Vinyl from my outside speakers

This was a first for me, anybody else ever been serenaded by a band while camping?

This month, while camping on the Blue Ridge Parkway, we heard fiddle music. On investigation, we found the campground host sitting under his awning playing some tunes. He offered us 2 chairs and we joined him for the next hour. It was delightful.

We've heard fellow campsters playing live music a few times when camping.

I think it's downhome and neat-o.
Kind of relaxing too.

We have encountered some church youth groups playing live music and singing at least a couple of times...and Boys Scouts with a bugle.

One thing I really dislike is hearing others music while camping. Sure, I love lots of different eclectic types but I'd rather not hear anything while I'm trying to relax in the outdoors, even if it's a type I might like. I have an outside radio/cd player and have never turned it on. Music, in my opinion, should never go beyond your own site.

That said, we've gone to some rallies where live music is welcome, and thats fine but thats one of the reasons we attend. There's not much I like more than fiddle and bluegrass but where do you draw the line? Is that ok but not someone else's hip-hop? Who's to say whats acceptable, I'd rather have nothing at all than something I don't like.

Agree 100% and that was the point of the post. Admittedly I would have thought it was a lot cooler if the music had been to my liking....I like good bluegrass too and trust me this was not it.....

I did find some good backwoods camping spots, pretty sure this is my first/last/only time at this CG. another pet peeve: CG rules state that vehicles may not be used withi the CG except to leave and return. So everybody has a golf cart and apparently they only have two speeds, off and floored. Must be a lot going on that I am missing since the carts are flying by constantly during the day.

We were boondocking about 80 klicks west or Red Deer and had invited a couple to come and join us for dinner. Gave them specific directions and carried on. About 10 minutes before we anticipated their arrival the skirl of the pipes wafted into the campsite. Our friends, with a second couple, one of whom was a piper, "marched" into camp to the beat of Scotland the Brave, to a very enthusiastic round of applause from all. Well the party went on to the wee hours and the campsite had four extra bodies the next morning. They also brought some absolutely delightful single malt that did not survive the night.
Campfire, good friends and family, a single malt and a fine cigar, can't see any way to improve that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Never argue with an idiot. You will be dragged down to their level and then beaten with experience.
