OK. So state parks are cool, and I like to support them, too, but they may be too restricitve and/or not as accommodating for the masses. What are our 'boundaries'? I know we can go farther out than BBSP or Huntsville SP, but it makes it more comlplicated for the hide teams and scouting out areas if it's not relatively close by.
How about coming up with a list of possible target locations (areas that have some level of city life with things to do / see / stay) in which people were interested in having the Challenge. Then everyone could come up with specific ideas for GZ locations and/or hide areas around the target location.
Then we can have several sets of ideas to compare. So if someone was interested in the College Station area, maybe, then ideas could come in around that that would work for both a HQ area and hide areas that would (or would not) work.
