What is the proper campground etiquette? I mean, if you are the new guy in the space, are you expected to introduce yourself to those who 'live' next door? Since this is only the fourth campground we've been in, and only the second where we've stayed for a week, all this is new to us and while I don't want to be "aloof" I also don't want to be "pushy".
In SC, we stayed three days and since there weren't many folks in the campground, and because I was sick, there wasn't much socializing. When we got to and stayed in Bradenton, we had very friendly folks next door, but still didn't socialize a whole lot because I was still sick and it was Christmas and I was missing family. Now, we've been here in the Keys for about five days, I finally feel healthy again, but I'm not sure how to address the "neighbor" issue. New folks just pulled in to our right and I'm not sure if we should introduce ourselves or not.
Maybe part of the issue is that I am a bit shy and quiet around folks I don't know. Add to that the fact that many of the residents here seem to have standing relationships. They visit one another. I feel like what we are, the new kids. What is the expectation on the part of the "new kids"? As someone who is not particularly outgoing, I'm not sure what to do. And as this will be a consistent occurrence, I need some feedback.
