I mean really loud. and both of them are snoring. what the heck should I do.

Coconutty Sat 10-Aug-13 00:20:32

Wake them up by shouting, "Stop it."

Works with DH.

K8Middleton Sat 10-Aug-13 00:20:49

Pretend to be a bear.

dontputaringonit Sat 10-Aug-13 00:21:01

Roll them onto their sides.

TeaAndSconesTwice Sat 10-Aug-13 00:24:59

Throw something at there tent grin

K8Middleton Sat 10-Aug-13 00:32:16

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.

NatashaBee Sat 10-Aug-13 02:06:20

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 ;-)

theonewiththenoisychild Sat 10-Aug-13 08:24:52

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.

Flossiechops Sun 11-Aug-13 13:15:47

Completely agree with iris earplugs are the only way. Boots do ones called muffles and they are made of wax. Swear to god you don't hear a thing!

DH snores loudly and after camping one year and going to the loo in the middle of the night and hearing DH across the site blush he now wearsthese when camping.

Perhaps you could discreetly leave some outside their tent for tomorrow!

Cooroo Sun 11-Aug-13 22:27:45

We went through a night of this recently. You get to feel so murderous. It was a woman who did all the snoring. She was a big lass too. I had to have very stern words with DP or he would have gone and suggested if she ate less we could all get a good night's sleep!

My plan is this: all campers contribute 50p per head and this pays for the snorer to stay in B&B. sorted.

delilahbelle Sun 11-Aug-13 22:33:41

We went camping with some of DHs friends once. One snored so loudly it was hell - I didn't get a wink of sleep.
I was v short (although not actually said anything rude) with him the next day. He thought it was funny angry

We don't camp now. And DH sees that friend without me.

I'm not good without my sleep.

The only real solution is whiskey and plenty of it, for you not them. Knocks you out without challenging your bladder - important while camping.

MummyPigsFatTummy Sun 11-Aug-13 22:41:45

I am glad you restrained your DH, Cooroo. I am a 'big lass' as you term it, and I would not take at all kindly to some bloke making personal and possibly baseless remarks like that to me when there are men of all shapes and sizes all over camp sites acriss the UK (and the world probably) keeping everyone awake every night.

TheWookiesWife Sun 11-Aug-13 22:45:58

Hahaha we had friends pop over today who were only near by because they are camping !! I wonder if it was them ! Lol !! That would be so funny !! - am intrigued - how did you solve the problem ?! :-)

I know it's frustrating, but it's really depressing knowing you have a snorer and feeling so bad about it, sending DH to a B&B would ruin our holiday and my DCs love camping above all other types of holiday. He'd be upset if he read this thread. Earplugs are the way to go.

WeAreSeven Tue 13-Aug-13 01:14:52

We just had this too. But at least the snorer is not doing it on purpose. I had far more of a problem with the group across from us who thought drinking and shouting and belching loudly !! late into the night with their small crying, overtired children who really needed to be just put to bed.

Lovecat Tue 13-Aug-13 11:47:15

At least be politer than the wankers who left a note under our windscreen wiper saying "stop the fucking snoring or we'll slash your tent and your tires" on a 'naice' site in cornwall a few yrs ago shock

It's not like it's done on purpose - earplugs are the way.

MummyPigsFatTummy Tue 13-Aug-13 12:24:22

Yep - ear plugs definitely the way to go. To be honest, I don't know how people camp without them. Never mind snorers, I couldn't sleep through all the babies crying, late-nighters chatting and singing, early risers talking and shouting at their children...etc etc.

With earplugs, I get a blissful night (more or less) regardless what is happening outside. grin

Lovecat shock. What a dreadful note! And how exactly did they expect you to 'stop the fucking snoring'? Other than sew a tennis ball into your pyjamas I guess?
