Could not agree more with you.
Unless you are there by yourself I think the flying field is probably the place with the most distractions. You can have multple aircraft in the air and lots of people milling around behind you engaged in multiple conversations, some bordering on shouting. I have seen guys walk up on fellow pilots while they were flying and try to engage them in conversation.
