    OKay. great. Now getting to the pond can be just a little confusing after dark. So, understand that the big two track goes to the Cemetery. You must go straight where the larger trail turns left for the cemetery to hit the pond. It is very close to the cemetery but after dark if there are no frogs making noise you may have to tramp around the area a little. it is NorthEast of the cemetery. and if all goes well we would be on the SE side of the pond.

    I suppose that would be ok if you can give good directions to the new camp site. My friend and I will be arriving fairly late Thursday evening and, since I already know how to get to the graveyard camp, if I get lost or it gets too dark I will just default to there.

    How many pairs of underwear do you own? Do you refer to them as "extras", simply because you're not wearing all of them as we speak?

    To find the pond

    This map should make it easy to find the pond from the cemetery.

    Ok that looks simple enough. Just head NNE from the cemetery and I'll run right into it?

    Go West till you smell it, North till you ..... feel it. Then turn around and walk out of the water to the campsite. LOL

    Here is what you will see when you are very near.

    and this is what you see if you are 3 months late.

    The trail to the pond forks 100 ft or so off the main trail. Which way do you turn? And how much farther after that?
    "a little Confusing" could easily turn bad for us, at night after a 12 work day with minimal sleep. I need as much detail as possible. In case you folks missed the memo, I'm comically bad at navigation during the day, at night Lord help me!!!

    Or we might just see you guys at the cemetery in the morning

    As you are heading for the cemetery, you turn on a vague trail toward the north or right. Coming from the cemetery you would of course take the vague trail north or left. If you yell at us this side of the cemetery we will come out and sneak up on you and scare you !
