Camping on the 4th in Wisconsin.Where we were at is was quiet.
When we had to leave there a sharp curve and as narrow as my whole rig.
By a little pond.Where 5 kids were fishing with a dad .
I pull up and assume they would move.They stood there like I had plenty of room.
So I pulled forward as I was grazing them all.Dad and kids stood there.
Gave them a warning better move as the end was coming around and all they did was move the tackle box over a hair.I seen the box hit the tires still and the kid grabs it as the Idiot parent watched.
Just some people don't need kids I swear.

So what you are saying is that the driver of the camping rig was operating in an unsafe manner. He continued to operate his vehicle even though he felt there may be human life in danger. It was more important for him to feel superior over the other person than to get out of his vehicle and correct the issue and avoid loss/harm of life.

I don't think he said that at all.
If they don't want to move their things then I'd run over them too. Heck, they must not care.

Sooo,what YOU are saying is that the driver should've stopped and waited until the people were finished fishing?

Lack of common sense and respect is a long lost thing these days .

Let me guess, I'll bet you were the dad that was standing there with the kids, Right?

Or there was plenty of room and the RV driver was not as familiar with or as proficient with the large vehicle he was driving as he should have been, and knowing this himself assumed all should know it and not have trusted his driving ability’s…

Having seen so many in this situation, that can’t get in and out of fuel islands and curb wheels, if it were me and the kids I may have thrown my rod and gear in the lake and ran in fear of life and limb, making it only dangerous for the slowest of us…

In this scenario all parties were guilty of making wrong assumptions, thus causing a stare down between the dad and the driver and even a more dangerous situation…

Or it happen exactly as the op reported it to be… if only I could ask the dad his version… I would give good odds it would be a much different tale…
