Many years ago while camping in a primative campground, we saw a girl about 13 walking around holding a hair dryer. When we asked her if she was lost or needed help, she replied, "my uncle told me there were current bushes here and I could just plug my hair dryer into them, I just can't tell which are current bushes".

I suppose instead of laughing we should have told her that they weren't blooming yet.
That sounds like something out of the military. I heard a friend who was a Navy Chief sent some young seaman after a "mail bouy". They hand a large hook on a 20ft pole and this kid gets to set out all night looking for a bouy that doesn't exist.

Or like in the Air Force where a new airman may be sent to get some "Prop Wash" & 20 feet of "Flight Line".

One of the reasons why my Nieces And Nephews will never be told of the existence of this site. Being an Uncle can be such fun.

In the Teamsters we make sure the bright eyed gung-ho kids don't forget to check the air pressure on the fifth wheel, that the 'castle nut' is torqued properly on the King-pin, and that the signal fluid levels are good. After all a proper pre-trip inspection is not just for safety, it is the law.

You should have looked her dead in the eye, with a serious expression on your face, and asked her "where's your shovel? This time of year the plugs haven't broken through the surface, you know."

This happened while tent camping 20 years ago at Lost Valley campground in Arkansas. My wife and I along with one other couple were camped on a hillside just above another couple who had a single-walled tent (pay attention to the single-walled tent, it's important). We had just finished supper and were sitting around a small campfire after dark had fallen, enjoying a few tasty beverages. The couple down the hill from us (no more than 30 feet) retired to their tent, turned on a light inside the tent and proceeded to try all the sexual positions afforded in the Kama Sutra. Their silhouettes were perfectly projected on their single-walled tent (I told you it was important). The other male in the group and I were the only ones in our camp that noticed this performance and our wives were otherwise engaged in conversation about the day's hike. We had watched the downhill couple perform for about 15 minutes when I elbowed my wife and pointed in the direction of the "show". When she saw what was going on, she let out the hugest guffaw of laughter I think I've ever heard from a lady as petite as she! Suddenly the light went out in the performer's tent and the show was over for the night. When we awoke the next morning, their tent was already gone so we didn't get the chance to goodbye...

I understand it's not that uncommon, but this "cool on a stool" for tent comfort was new to me. After all we were camping in the Ozark Mountains.

Oh my eyes are leaking. That's one of the funniest things I've seen in a while, cool on a stool indeed

Just got back from Tishomingo State Park in Mississippi, where we witnessed a rather scary sight. A couple with an older stick-built, about 25' long, pulling it with an old rattletrap 4-cylinder truck spewing smoke. When they got ready to leave, the man's method of hooking up the trailer consisted of backing up until he bashed into the tongue (more than once) with his wife yelling at him because he wouldn't listen to her when she tried to direct him. She was standing by the tongue with a large hammer (???) It was like watching a Monty Python sketch!

The strangest thing I've ever seen a camper do was a woman decided that talking on her cell phone while sitting in her minivan was more important than watching her child. She proceeded to lock her child or grandchild in the dog kennel with the dog inside (the wire type). Of course the kid was screaming. Several of us at the pool tried to locate a cell phone to dial 911 and a crowd had gathered by the pool fence. The woman saw the crowd gathering and promptly took the kid out, threw him in her minivan with the door open and took off. We didn't find out of the police caught up with her or not.
