Rockdocking Camp Silencer- Western Style
The wife and I are back from our camping trip in New Mexico and we are now trying to finish up moving what is left of 15 tons of pebbles and boulders for our landscaping. I move four wheel barrow loads and take a break... and where else to ease the back and mind? The internet.
So. Campground "Silencer"
(1) Take a five gallon plastic bucket, or better yet, a similar size tin container.
(2) Drill a round hole about 1/4 inch through the bottom.
(3) Take a 36 to 48 inch synthetic fiber cord, that is about 3/8 inch to 1 inch thick. Like a long shoe lace, but wider. I like to use the conference cords that hang around your neck for you business card... Wider is better.
(4) Tie a large knot on one end and insert the other end through the hole in the bottom of the bucket and pull it through. You might have to push it through the small opening with an ice pick. Then tie a knot and before you tighten it, move it to the bottom of the bucket and then tighten the knot. The cord will not pull out.
(5) Take the cord and dampen it. Get it real soaking wet. Between your thumb and index finger strain the excess water out.
(6) Take the five gallon bucket and use cradle it with your arm with the cord and open end facing forward. You will look like you are holding an empty bucket with the bucket held against your side and your hand underneath the side.
(7) Point the bucket in the direction of noisy campers. Pull the cord tight and let it hang out the front end of the bucket.
(8) Put your other hand into the buck about 2/3rds of the way in and hold the damp cord between your thumb and index finger. Give it a practice pull. Change the tension between your fingers and add some water if necessary.
(9) When you are experienced enough. Take the Camp Silencer along with you on ALL camping trips into Rockdocking, Boondocking and RV Park camp sites.
(10) As you use the Camp Silencer, change the direction of the bucket. Also, only do enough to get the camping area... silenced.
(11) For those of you who live in an Urban area. A smaller bucket can be used imitate other "sick" mammals in the area.
If this thread is not deleted for being off topic and malicious behavior... I was taught how to do this by a National Park Ranger, and official protector of the Public Lands. I will tell you the official name of the silencer later.
