Rolled my ankle exiting the RV at a CG once and ended up in the ER & crutches.

Wife fell of her Segway in Quartzsite and broke her right wrist. The ER in Blythe was lacking. Found a great sports orthopedic surgeon in Yuma, that screwed her back together. The Segway was undamaged.

Lucky so far. Only semi bad experience was having to leave on the 3rd day of our planned 3 week stay at a Colorado RV park due to approaching massive forest fire and then having to find a place to stay. Nice about RVing though, just pack up and go any direction you want.

Oh yeah, there was the one time when our neighboring RV site had a twirling multi colored disco ball hanging from a tree limb throwing colored lights all around. [emoticon]

Biggest wind I've experienced...early this year at Tuttle Creek USFS campground near Lone Pine, CA on U.S. 395. Just east of Movie Road in the Alabama Hills. Blew the TT tongue jack off my wooden block, lost my spare tire cover but no damage!

Had to deal with a "permanent resident" at a county campground once who let her dog roam all over unsupervised and even took him into the shower with her. The dog's name was Bob Barker.

It wasn't "one" time. Mostly, it's just noise. Extreme noise from kids, adults, dogs, or stereos. As long as they are quiet during quiet time, it's not that big of an issue. The other annoyance for me is people cutting through our area because it is a few feet shorter walk for them. I also don't like unleashed pets that poop everywhere. Of course, nobody to clean up after them because they don't know where they pooped when their pet was having "freedom".

In other words, about the same as neighborhoods anywhere. [emoticon]

Knuckle Heads right next to us (drunk) plinking beer cans and bottles off the picnic table with a .22 rifle...crowded State Park...

Sheriff arrived and hauled them off. The woman who was with them also arrested for mouthing off to the deputies. It was all quite a scene.
