A bonfire is one thing. But 32 trees? And it seems that they left plenty of unused wooden pallets at the campsite - why not burn those?

And the M was created by nails in a tree:

One photo showed nails hammered into a cut down tree in the shape of the letter "M."
The pictures show the same. Still, it doesn't make what they did sound any better/worse.

I guess it also amazes me that the one guy willingly gave up the name of their fraternity to a stranger and openly advertised that they were performing an "initiation ceremony".
I believe in the values of friendship and fidelity to purpose
