    Right, but there are several small trails that go off the the right. to be sure you should go till you see the graveyard before you take a right turn. it would be even better to get near the cemetery then take your NNE shot from there.

    True, you may only hear loud hammocks swinging.
    On Friday nite we will PROBABLY be West of the cemetery. Its only five minutes from the cemetery to the pond and only 5 minutes West of the cemetery to that camp site.

    This sounds like a plan to me. That spot east of the pond is a pretty good hang site.

    "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

    I'll be coming in Thursday afternoon. I would gladly hang a few blue chemlights leading to the pond if it would help the folks coming in after dark.

    I think most cell phones will work up there on the ridge, too. Anyone who wants it can PM me and maybe all of us should share our numbers, then we can help each other not get lost, etc..
