View Full Version : Camp MJ Rocky Mountain August 2012

Just beginning to plan the event, but a rough idea is to camp out near Buena Vista, CO in the Four Mile area off FSR 315 in August. This will be a three or four day event centered around the Fort Carson Training Holiday that month.

Here is the view from the top of the hill looking west, north, east and south. The road in is in good shape and can easliy be made my tow rigs, RVs, 5th wheels, etc. There are numerous areas in the grass for tents and just east of this area is another area off the hill top that is a little more protected nbut still good for trailers, RVs or tents. There are no facilities here, so one of the tasks for the committee is to look into the permissions and cost of getting a porta potty set up down by the road.

That grill does look cool. We could use something like that. LOL! So how goes the plans for this year. I can't wait to get out there. I should be back in May sometime. The Jeep should be out of the shop at the end of March. I'm most likely going to try and burn so leave for that week. I have a bunch of use or lose to get rid of.

Ok so what do we need to to do to help out?

OK I found the thread! Anyways, whats going on with this? I havent really seen or heard anything about it or where we stand with it.

I did get the grill's rolling chassis done and the body cut down. I will start getting the body welded back together so we can get it registered my MJ. I guess worst case scenario we can throw it on the trailer if we dont have plates for it yet.

Do we want the grill to look the the one pictured in this thread cause I was told to build it the opposite way. As in the back "bed" of the Jeep is being used for the grill, not the front. I was going to cover the front with sheet and have a MJ sticker made for it, a big one!

No we are tracking the grill will be in the back of the Jeep...the photo was just the inspiration for the idea. Are we still going to try and rig up some propane burners on ine side? I have a full tank I can donate if we are.

Yea the plan was to split it, 3/4 charcoal - 1/4 charcoal.

07-10-2012, 18:47
Just a heads up if the fire ban is still on at that time charcoal wont be allowed

07-10-2012, 21:07
ha I meant 1/4 Propane, that will still be plenty of grill to cook up some burgers or whatever if there is a ban.

Does anyone know if there is a community dinner planned?

08-16-2012, 11:57
WTH, how many people are going. As of now I am guestimating like 5 people based upon posts made up to yesterday!>!>

08-16-2012, 13:28
I think you are guessing right....I am guessing that the number might be around 10 or 12 people. That includes you!

08-18-2012, 01:36
Somebody bring a grill, my wife said no to bringing my grill.
