Wake them up by shouting, "Stop it."

Works with DH.

Pretend to be a bear.

Roll them onto their sides.

Throw something at there tent grin

Sew a tennis ball into the back of each of their pyjama tops.

Cough loudly to wake them from deep sleep... Repeat.... Repeat.... Repeat....

whistle grin

Unzip their tent quietly, throw a pan of water over them, run back to your tent faster than the wind, get in your sleeping bag and pretend to be asleep. When the shouting dies down, report back here.

The only passive aggressive way of dealing with this WITHOUT breaching campsite etiquette is to go to the loo without a torch and accidentally trip over their guy ropes a few times.

Grumpla Sat 10-Aug-13 00:45:28

Personally I'd commando-crawl to head level and bellow "Stop snoring or DIE, FUCKERS!!!" at top volume.

BrianTheMole Sat 10-Aug-13 00:52:43

Oh, without breaching campsite etiquette, hmm. Well, go and knock on their tent, say I'm ever so sorry but your snoring is keeping me awake. And offer them a clothes peg to put on their noses. Would that work? Or maybe some tape for their mouths.

Taser them through the tent.

MariaLuna Sat 10-Aug-13 02:10:44

Move your tent.

The other alternative is be thankful you don't live with them and go back home grin

MariaLuna Sat 10-Aug-13 02:13:51

P.s. It's why I prefer to "camp" out at home in my own bed... luckily I can go out the front door for some fresh air.

I hate camping - unless it's in a game park in Kenya ;-)

i would be looking for somewhere that sells ear plugs this morning

CitrusyOne Sat 10-Aug-13 08:27:13

I'm interested to know how you 'knock' on a tent [😏]

shockers Sat 10-Aug-13 08:32:43

You mime the knocking action whilst shouting, "Knock knock!"

VivaLeBeaver Sat 10-Aug-13 08:32:58

Cut their guy ropes with a knife so they have to go home.

lostinindia Sat 10-Aug-13 08:35:36

Poke their tent with a long stick.

shockers Sat 10-Aug-13 08:36:57

You aren't camping in the NW are you?

It could be us.....

Be grateful it's only while you're camping and don't have to live with it. My DH is a very loud snorer and I am very self conscious of it when we go camping, in fact we go less often now partly because of it, having had a snotty comment from someone once, but that makes me so sad, we all love our camping.

IrisWildthyme Sat 10-Aug-13 08:41:21

Never go camping without earplugs. Unless camping alone in the wilderness far from all other sources of sound.

AnneUulmelmahay Sat 10-Aug-13 08:44:22

Whoknows, do encourage your DH to talk to his GP about the v loud snoring, it can sometimes indicate underlying health issues. x

He's done all that thanks Anne - no sleep apnoea, just a bit overweight and comes from a family of very loud snorers.
