I like all your ideas and actually don't really care that much. I mainly just want to see everyone. I like Farmer John's comment that we don't stay there for both days, AND I like rolloff's idea about hiking to Jones Hollow, at least for a day hike. I am not trying to be a #$&$# here, but Terrell Pond and the area around there is just not wilderness. If we stay there, no harder to get to than to follow a two track mostly, we could just as easily stay in a camp ground with facilities and have a good time either way. Or we could actually hike to somewhere that isn't so easy to get to, and that has it's drawbacks too.
I am just glad we are discussing it even if we still stay near the cemetery. But just my two cents is that I don't feel I am backpacking or wilderness camping at Terrell Pond and the Cemetery.
I like the ideas that makes the weekend more than just hanging in one place for two days. We sometimes do just that in Brown Hollow when it's raining or something but at least we are in an out of the way spot.
You all could just say we are doing as planned and I would be there, but if others do feel it's a lame spot at least for two days, maybe we should supplement the plan a bit.
There are only two kinds of people that understand Marines: Marines and the enemy. Everyone else has a second-hand opinion.
