A first camping trip with twins

SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK — As we returned to our campsite, we noticed that someone else had set up their tent about 100 feet from ours. And they apparently got their calm in the woods not by listening to chirping birds or rustling leaves, but by setting up a stereo and blaring the likes of Bob Seger, Bob Marley, and Edwin McCain.

This didn’t jibe with our style of camping, and in ordinary circumstances I may have made a polite request.
