    I'm hoping to take some time for another road trip down to the Island. Is there anyone else interested? Marine and non-Marine are welcome?
    What date and time were you looking at? Are there any new restriction's post 9/11 for entering the base? I thought of this trip several times in the past but never got the planning together.

    Right now it's just a fact finding mission to guage interest. There were no new restrictions that I'd noticed post 9/11... I believe our best opportunity to have a successful trip would be to plan it to coincide with a graduation ceremony. If anyone has a point of contact on the island that could assist, that would surely help.

    I'd strongly reccomend that we wait until the weather cools down a bit though. When I was last there, the heat really made it a lot less enjoyable... (on top of being there with ex-in-laws)...

    With that being said, I'm thinking the second half of September... Does anyone have other suggestions?

    Im sure if you contact the visitor center at (843) 228-3650 you can set something up. Could probably even get it set up to watch a graduation or the Eagle Globe and Anchor ceremony.

    Definately a good idea... I think seeing a Bn. marching out of the crucible to receive their EGA's... Yeah, that's good stuff right there!!
