Schutzie finds amusement in this thread. In the mid 70's one could lounge all one wanted at pumphouse (yes, there really was a pumphouse there then) no one complained. Of course, one rarely wanted to lounge, cause, you know, there wasn't much lounging to be done there.
One could take all day at State Bridge, or for that matter at Rancho, cause, you know, no one else was around.
WestWater? Don't recall ever, in 7 years, seeing anyone else at either end. Hell, we camped at little Dolores regularly and spread our shit all over the place. No one complained.

I did have one complaint at 6 mile one time; seems this fellow in error carried one of our duffles up and left his sitting at the bottom , and he was hoping we'd reciprocate. It being 6 mile and all, we thanked him and offered him a beer for his trouble, but declined to haul his bag up the trail.......

Dolores on Memorial day weekend could get a bit crowded, but back in the day we were all heathens anyway, and settled put in, camp and take out arguments like gentlemen, you know, with knives and cursing.

Seriously people, settle your issues as best you see fit and accept the outcome. It ain't worth agonizing over.
