I was at a commercial/ industrial tool dealer this week. I took a flyer when
I left which had tool deals for the next month. My mind started to fabricate the possibilities of the new tools that run on batteries and the " inevitable encounter"
In your local campground. Leaf blower, weed wacker. Chainsaw, pole pruner, radio,led lights, impact wrench for on site tire rotation, caulk gun to fix a leak, reciprocating saw and on and on. Finally if it gets cool in the evening., don your battery heated jacket while you have a cold drink by your cut up pallet fire. Aaaaah that's camping.

RogerDat-----I have enjoyed this thread, but not nearly as much as I enjoyed your post and the "visual" imagery it evoked!!!!!


Excellent problem-solving!

Yep, you've hit the nail on the head. Seems like every year you run into one or two of that type! No consideration for others.

Judge me if you want, but I have had a leaf blower in my Casita and I have one in my Escape. If my campsite is not clean and I have an electric connection, I will not hesitate to use it. I don't blow it in the neighbor's space and it only takes me a few minutes.

Did he give you his camp spot?
Could have been worse. He could have been watching NFL with grown men intentionally inflicting injury on others; broken legs and concussions.

This has been an interesting thread with across the board replies, but I do have a comment. I have had a blower used a couple times from someone setting up but they only ran it a few minutes, no problem as it was before the "quite" time. Now if it was at 9....10 pm, different opinion on my part. Music, a loosely used term, is way more annoying .
So, the best thing I've learned from this thread, if you use a blower... you may not want to roast any marshmellows on wet firewood .

We ran into this for the 1st time this Dec in a MS state park. It was the middle of the day when 2 women ran one in an unoccupied site across the road from us, I guess in preparation of a friend coming in. As it was only for 20 or 30 seconds it didn't bother us at all, kind of thought it was a good idea. They only used it on the paved pad.

Unless closed for the season, campgrounds are open 24/7.

Oregon State parks are some of the best in the nation. But they can be noisy places during the day. Lawn mowers, leaf blowers and chain saws. The parks have to be maintained.

I suppose people would be less likely to complain if the person doing the work is wearing a uniform?

When you can't get the lousy wet firewood you just purchased lit, a leaf blower can get flames in a minute or so. Beats the heck out of fanning with paper plates.

I carry a parafin impregnated fire log as fire starter. I lop off a chunk of it ( about 1/3 ) to build a core fire. Not noisy and needs no electricity. Camper next to me stood in awe, and in a cloud of smoke, watching my fire burn while his smouldered.

A small battery-powered O2Cool fan will get the fire burning. A leaf blower might be a bit overkill.
