Usually, common courtesy is to not camp right next to someone, or not walk through someones camp. That's been the accepted practice. Not to mention people are picking spots that can hold their entire family - which tend to be large. It's not uncommon to see the same trailer camps out their for the entire duration of the season. Most everyone set their camps, leave for the week, then come back every weekend until the season ends.

Personally, on my own family camps, Im starting to tent more, and bring the trailer out less. I find the whole thing a PITA. With a tent, your more flexible on where you can camp, and trailers are the same amount of work taking them out regardless if it's 2 days or 2 weeks. On my own, I plan on backpacking in and "sleeping with the elk" so to speak, and get away from the road entirely.

Yeah that's downright rude. There's no excuse for that if it was deliberate.

I agree on the rest. I was looking to move here 5-6 years ago and home prices were way lower. They were actually reasonable. Now a lot of them are ridiculously priced. And land is a joke in town. We are renting for a while just to save up money and have a reasonable note.
Unless the pandemic has had an effect, Unfortuantely it's only going to get worse. I wonder if the end result of this pandemic is going to see more people moving here, or less. Did all the moving in stop, or are people going to flee the lockdown states for places like Utah? Who knows. Personally, it's already too crowded for me. If there were no ties that bind, I'd have packed up and left already.

It’s all worth it though as we love it here. We are really enjoying what this region of the country has to offer our family.
Utah has been great. The only thing that can get me out of Utah, is Alaska. Glad your enjoying yourself here. Again, not my intent to crap on your parade. I've been to Lousiana a few times when I was stationed in Mississippi a couple years. Two things I miss from the south: Poeboys and real cajun crawfish. You just can't get the real deal anywhere else. I've looked, and NOBODY outside of that area can do it right.

Funny, I was talking to another Turkey hunter on mothers day weekend who was also originally from Louisiana, said he's been living here for 20 years now. Something here must be sparking an interest in y'all.

Lol. You can actually stay outside longer than 5 mins here. People think it’s hot here. You didn’t happen to run into him out at Middle Fork did you? I know someone on here actually from LA.

The food is the only thing we miss other than family from LA. I may have to order some crawfish from LA next season and do a UWN crawfish boil lol. Leftovers go towards frying up for po’boys.

Also if you want some quick poboys then if you fish and catch any brim, crappie or something like that (not sure if they have catfish here but would be ideal) then cut them up in little filets or nuggets and fry them up for a fish poboy.

Lots of channel cats in Utah Lake, also Echo and the Bear River. White bass would make some killer Poboys too....

I think it's almost time to start doing crawfish boils again. We catch them mostly from Stawberry (haven't found any other sweet spots yet). Good eats
