Thinking about it ,a name change isn't needed . But I really like the memorial concept like Trina suggested .
I don't think Pete was a religious man like Chilliwack so a cross may not be appropriate but something other could be made as a permanent marker for a friend . I'm just not sure what at this point .

I will never be able to call it anything different than "Area 51". Its stuck in my head and I still can hear Pete calling it this. I really love the idea of making a memorial there for him. (The little island would be perfect). I couldn't bear to call this special place something else.

I have been thinking what a good memorial would be is a bench with his name etched into it. A bench on the little island......

...I can start working on that for this summer if everyone likes that idea.

I think it should be kept area 51 as well. A nice steel plaque bolted into a rock would be nice as well. Maybe at the entrance so everyone that down down can see it.

ass hat teens usually dont go that far into the bush.And if they do they mostly will have the respect for the land.

A permanent plaque is absolutely perfect and should be done. But I really want to do a bench as well. Even if I have to replace it in the future.

I think if I bench is bolted down some where at the tip of the island no one would touch it at all. I think it it's closer to the main beach it might get damaged then.
