I'm certain the belief that "no one cares about your trip" is absolutely not the case. Rather, many of the folks inside the FJC are more sporadic in their involvement. After a decade now, daily/hourly posting is beginning to wane here. I apologize for myself, because I've been traveling and away, so just literally seeing the post now.
I'm glad to see your guys going strong at 35 years, and with such a robust number of people! I'm part of a similar group going to Myrtle, but we're now down to about 10-12 guys. We celebrated year number 28 this past April ourselves. Do enjoy the time, fellowship, and friendships. Every year is a blessing.
