I'm very much encouraged by what I've read in this thread. The fact that so many have indicated that they did not percieve any problem if good. I noticed only a few subtle things that I won't even go into here. I probably notice some of these things because of my past experience in organizing FSGW events. I'm a little more sensitized to them.
I think we make a reasonable effort to deal with everyone's sleeping preferences. In fact, cabin assignments are not written in stone. If you need to change for some reason arrangements can be made.
The issue of separate jams going on at night is as old as the Getaway. It seemed that I used to spend half the night at Prince William Forest Park wandering around looking for the right one to join. There was usually a rock and roll jam called the Cabin B Boogie that I always felt uncomfortable going to because it seemed to be a bunch of friends jamming. I later got to know most of those people pretty well, and I now realize that the problem was mine. I think that one difference at Ramblewood is that some of the jamming is going on in the cabins. Some people may feel uncomfortable about crashing the party in someone's "living room." However, with the arrangement of this camp the cabins make some of the best spaces, so I think we will just have to get used to it. I think it is significant that we are relatively new to Ramblewood. We're still learning how to best use it.
