Fly-Drive: Funny Quotes from Wilderness Campers

Are you planning a fly-drive holiday in the US, Australia or New Zealand?
If so, here are some funny quotes from wilderness campers as told to the u.s. forest campsite wardens...
 fly-drive holidays are a great way to get a taste of what your life could be like with a sussex campervan.

Many people first try campervan life in a hired RV, motorhome or campervan on a holiday abroad. Often they fall in love with the whole lifestyle, then buy a van when they get home. So I thought you might like to read some of the funniest comments made to the US Forest campsite wardens by their visitors. The United States Forest Service runs quite a few campgrounds, so that people can explore the wilderness, and when people check out, the wardens invite campers to leave comments. Here are some of the hilarious answers.

Question:
How did you find your camping experience?

  • “A deer stole my food. Is there a way I can get reimbursed?”
  • “Escalators would help on steep uphill sections.”
  • “Trails need to be reconstructed. Please avoid building trails that go uphill.”
  • “Instead of a permit system or regulations, the Forest Service needs to reduce worldwide population growth to limit the number of visitors to wilderness.”

  • “Trails need to be wider so people can walk while holding hands.”
  • “Ban walking sticks in wilderness. Hikers that use walking sticks are more likely to chase animals.”
  • “All the mile markers are missing this year.”
  • “I found a smouldering cigarette left by a horse.”
  • “Too many bugs, leeches, spiders and spider webs. Please spray the wilderness to rid the area of these pests.”
  • “Please pave the trails so they can be ploughed clear of snow in the winter.”
  • “Chair lifts need to be in some places so that we can get to wonderful views without having to hike to them.”
  • “The coyotes made too much noise last night and kept me awake. Please eradicate these annoying animals.”
  • “Reflectors need to be placed on trees every 50 feet so people can hike at night with flashlights.”
  • “You need more signs to keep area pristine.”
  • “A McDonald’s would be nice at the trailhead.”
  • “The places where trails do not exist are not well marked.”
  • “There are too many rocks in the mountains.”

Well, we certainly enjoyed these comments - reported by several sources - whether they’re real or tongue-in-cheek. When you’re out and about in your Sussex Campervan, I hope they make you smile, too.
