Gross story - faint of heart, go elsewhere.
A new camper pulls into the spot next to me this weekend. I noticed him pouring about a quart of bleach into his white water tank and politely suggested that it was probably WAY TOO MUCH. He pulls out his cell phone and shows me a video he took in the early dawn hours at another campground.
It was someone sneaking up to his RV jimmying the water access door and using his white tank as a urinal. What's worse? He went to the next RV and repeated the act. And then the next. My neighbor had gotten up very early and used the shower house rather than disturbing his wife. He used his cell's camera to take the shot - then yelled at the perpetrator.
Thanks to the video, campground security was able to find the cretin who did the deed, but no one knows how many RV's might have been targeted. The teenaged pervert was arrested, but it was enough to make this man switch campgrounds anyway. Well he says he'll shock treat the white tank and all of his plumbing several times before anyone uses it even to shower in, and he's looking for a better lock on the water door.
Do I need anything ELSE to be paranoid about? Sigh. ((Of course then I remember W.C. Fields' ever relevant comment, "Don't drink water, fish **** in it."))
I ALMOST hope that video gets posted on Youtube. The parents are apparently embarrassed and angry with their kid. I did a lot of things as a teenager - or even younger - that as an adult I realize were stupid, but other than trying to paint my toy desk and table, I don't remember most of us doing anything truly this disgusting. TP on Halloween seems pretty mild doesn't it?
About a decade ago, a bunch of teenagers vandalized the bathrooms in the resort I normally park at - did $4000 in damage, breaking toilets and sinks. The members all had to kick in to a special fund to repair and replace the damage. I wish cameras had been as common then. Even if it's illegal to have surveillance cameras IN a bathroom, our vandals could have been caught just by being able to watch who was going in and out.
Our campground has a lot of Iron in the water - It tastes bad enough that I've always used bottled water, or brought a couple of gallons of city water from work. whew.
