    Afoot and light-hearted, I take to the open road,
    Healthy, free, the world before me,
    The long brown path before me, leading wherever I choose.

    Do we need to plan an end of time Mayan Calendar/Winter Solstice hang on the 21st?

    you left off none of the above

    I still like Mar 29-31st. I have off Good Friday so that makes a great 3 day weekend. The last 2-3 times I have been there over Easter you don't see anyone and the Rangers probably won't be there

    Who cares about showers, gourmet food, using flush toilets. Just keep on walking and being away from it all.

    There are times that the only way you can do something is to do it alone.

    Some of us have Easter Bunny duties that weekend. Why not have a second hang Easter weekend for those who can make it then?

    Right now, I'm good for either weekend, tending toward the Thurs-Sun options.

    I like the Thursday night- Sunday options. As long as we set a weekend early enough for me to take off from work before someone else claims that date, I don't have a preference.

    I def like the Thursday-Sunday options as it leave me the ability to just come saturday night if I am not able to get off work. cant predict my schedule that far in advance.
