I know these toys are probably a lot of fun, but how about using your feet to get around the campground instead? Or a bike? Much quieter and your fellow campers will be much happier, too. Last thing this planet needs is more obnoxious 2 cycle smokers with crappy mufflers. We have a few of the street scooters in the neighborhood and I can hear them coming about a mile away. Then the stinkin' smoke comes wafting thru my house if the windows happen to be open. Same thing goes for personal water craft, dirt bikes, gas leaf blowers, etc. I heard somewhere that a foreign tourist visiting Lake Mead? said he could not understand why we Americans would allow some guy on a jet-ski to disturb so many people. Don't get me started! Besides, it's not Vanagon content. OK, my rant for the day... I feel better now. Pardon my directness.
