Putting out a "Do Not Disturb" Sign

This weekend, we spend quite a bit of time in a "resort" campground, and the kids had a blast. There's definitely a social net that is spread far and wide in this campground, and most everyone seems welcoming.

There were a couple of times I wanted to stop by someone's camper and knock, but wondered if they were sleeping, showering, etc and didn't want to interrupt at an inconvenient time.

My wife and I decided that we wished we had a "Do Not Disturb" sign to hang on the camper door to let others know that we were showering, sleeping, scrumpin', etc.! or even just to plain welcome them. Has anyone seen anything creative?

I know at most rallies, at least in the recent past, if you are up and about, and able to have company, you open the curtains in the living area where potential visitors can see you are there.

We seldom use the air conditioning, so having the door open, awning out, and maybe a couple of chairs and a cooler full of beer under the awning is pretty welcoming for anybody who wants to drop by.

Scrumpin'? That's a new one on me!

For a creative "do not disturb" sign, there's always the ever popular,
"If the trailer is a rockin', please don't come a' knockin'."

So one side says 'Do Not Disturb' and the other side tells the Maid it's ok to come on in?

Yes, a door hanger, that's what I need... But it can't blow off in the wind!

How about a framed piece of dry erase board or small chalk board that you hang on your door. You can write your "do not disturb", etc...and a friend, neighbor that stops by can also leave a message if you are away or "scromping"

A dry erase board is perfect, since you can tailor the message to suit the reason du jour. Napping, working on the computer, too drunk to lie down without holding on, whatever.

BUT, since hanging it on your door means that the sign will rattle with every gust of wind, pad the back of it! A foam pad covered in a scrap of quilt would be just about right. That would also let you use the dry erase board as a lap desk when you don't have it hanging on your door.

If the step is up while I'm camping in the trailer, it's pretty much a guaranteed face-plant when I finally come out. Camera-worthy event, to be sure.

I'll have to find some other indicator, though I like the idea of a sign that says "Yes, they still make 'em! Want a tour? Bring a good bottle of wine, and we'll call it even."

"Baby Sleeping" works very well. My wife laminated it so it would last. Our baby is now 8 but we still use the sign as a do not disturb.
