So, i took my six year old son camping this weekend; gave the wife a break, etc. Thought it was about time he learned that just about anything can be cooked on an open fire, how important a billy was and the early warning signs for hypothermia - male bonding stuff. We arrived and met family friends at the site at about 9am-ish, had the tent up by 10am-ish and had the fire raging by midday - hells yeah! It's hard to beat snag sandwiches, beer, hardcore bush and good friends sitting around enjoying each other's company. Add in marshmallows, a bushwalk and more fire, and the day was progressing incredibly well, my son was loving it, and we were all enjoying the lack of technology - trees, thunder and crackling fire. Seriously, is there much better? Then the boguns arrived. They popped out of their cars, bundy and coke in hand, and loudly started discussing where the tent city would be erected. An hour later the campsite was swimming in flannos, JD/coke cans and swearing so loud you could hear it from a mile away (usually my language would make a sailor blush but not when the area is full of kids, ffs). Then, the incredible went a notch up - they pulled the ute up and put the stereo on. Putting aside the fact that their musical taste was fine by my standards; Doors, Led Zep, Stones, etc; the volume.. jebus. It was so loud i could feel the bass through my fold-out chair 40m away. I could hear it reverberate off the valley mountain faces. The last two times i've camped now the same thing has occurred. Peace, quiet and tranquality.... then a group of inconsiderate, noisy, assholes rock up and ruin it all. Last time it was idiots with generators/TVs and this time it was music and mega-late night drinking/swearing. I gave up, care of the incessant rain, and headed home today. We had a good time and can't wait for the next time. Unfortunately, I can't help but wonder: what the fark is wrong with people? If anyone knows the drunken yobs that rocked up at Mogo camp grounds/Yengo Nat Park this weekend: feel free to pass on the message that they ruined the experience for at least four families this weekend. Good job, twats.
