It happened informally on Saturday, and I don't think there is anything wrong with it. But may some of the newer guys might feel differently? Maybe we should ensure that the line up includes an experienced person every 4-5 trucks to have waist gunner responsibility?
The biggest concern were some of the new folks wandered off by themselves. If they would have gotten stuck/lost and had issues with radio contact it could have been a problem. We may want to adopt the buddy system so at least 2 vehicles are always together just to be safe.
