What are people's opinions on the site location? If the majority is fine with Greylock, I will book the sites. I am open to options at this point.
I've only been to Greylock for the day and not overnight. I'll put in a vote for Greylock. As long as it's any other night than Oct 6 and 7th.
I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. - E. B. White (1899 - 1985)
I have called Mt. Greylock and I am ready to reserve some sites. I am planning on reserving both the Cherry and Birch Group sites. The ranges said there were plenty of trees. The only question I have that I need an answer to before I go ahead an commit some $$ to the cause....Just Saturday night? Or both Friday and Saturday night? I was planning on the just Saturday, but I need to know what the group wants before I book.
At the moment they are 10-5/7. Friday Saturday Sunday. But still waiting for other replies. Could just be sat-sun.
This is how things are looking right now...
