Camping Etiquette can vary depending on who you're with and the nature of the trip. For this thread, we're talking about camping with WRJC. We're a family oriented group and make a lot of effort to keep the tone "PG". There was a time where the shenanigens were getting out of control but we've since put a stop to that. I believe everyone who made it on our last ride over Veteran's Day to Choccolocco can vouch for that.

This isn't an all-inclusive list but things I came up with off the top of my head:

"DO's"

- Bring enough food for yourself and the means to cook it
- Watch your language (there are always kids around)
- Introduce yourself and get to know everyone
- Get smart on the things your not. ie, if you're not sure, ask!
- Consider separating yourself from the group if you're running a generator
- Help collect firewood/keep the fire going
- Offer to help others setup/cook/clean up etc

DON'TS

- Be an obnoxious drunk
- Drive after you've been drinking
- Get loud near the tent area... people may be trying to sleep

We usually end up sharing food but keep in mind that cooking all that food is a burden and it keeps the cook from enjoying time with everyone else. Offer to man the grill or help clean dishes. Theres a really cool app for smart phones called Skyview that displays all the consellations and planets through the camera on your phone or iPad. It's a huge hit with the kids.

A lot of the time, these trips are some families' first time out camping. Theyre making memories that the kids will have for a lifetime, try to help foster those good memories  :thumbsup:
