Last time I camped on Shultz Pass Road, I turned off just past the sign that says camping is allowe--there is a little road that goes off to the left. I have camped Shultz Pass a number of times, also Lockett's. I hate car camping, only do it for a reason, like I have to be somewhere nearby the next day.
So last time we were just bivying for the night there along Shultz Pass Rd., planning to do the Hump first thing the next morning. No big deal, but still one likes to get one's sleep. At 3 a.m., no kidding at 3 a.m., some total creep idiot dipdoodle parked nearby and turned his stereo up loud enough to wake most of Flagstaff. We shined lights over there and yelled at him, and lucky us, he turned the thing off. My friend, a real pacifist type, whispered at me, "Hey, did you bring your gun?" She was scared. I assured her, that yes, it was here in my tent, under my pillow!
I have never failed to go car camping that, if there are other people nearby, they have no idea they are being really annoyingly noisy, or maybe they just don't care. Playing music in a campground or camping area, where other people can hear it is just beyond rude. Just beyond ignorant. What can you say about people like that? It's funny too, because it wouldn't even matter if they were playing my favorite song in the whole wide world. I still don't want to hear it in my space. Of course, they never are playing my favorite song, anyway.
