Ok all we are getting the pavilion for free. But each person will have to call and reserve their camping individually. The following prices

Primitive camping - tents $16.00 per night plus tax
cabins - basic - $100.00 per night / small deluxe -$125.00 per night / large deluxe -$225-325.00 per night.

Do we need to reserve specific sites? I'd like us to be in the same area if possible.

If you are doing primitive camping or trailer camping tell them you are with Military Jeepers and you will be in the old event area. If you are doing a Cabin then just pick your cabin and tell them you are with military Jeepers and you MIGHT get a Military Discount. lol

Is this the usual turn out this early on, or are we just really light this year so far

has anybody checked out the permit costs, which is in addition to camping costs? Is MJ getting a break on these costs? If not I can't attend. Is it to late to switch to Harlen?

I have called the corporate office. The only people that have to pay the permit cost are those who will be riding the trails. For example My wife and 10 Month old will be there Saturday but will not be with me in the Jeep. they do not have to pay the land use fee. However if they are in the Vehicle with you on the trails then they are required to pay. I am still waiting for Kira at Coal Creek LLC to get back with me about a discounted ticket. They are letting us use the pavilion free of charge.

Well if we show up, hope you are making that big pot of scalding hot goodness again! I am doing a local move as soon as we return and have a lot of stuff to do, jeep maintenance included. I will work on getting Erin on board to go and see if we can swing it. It's a long ass trip for a weekender with the kids.

Who is Carolina off-road?

It is a North Carolina Non Profit group that requested to join in. A few of them were at the Camp MJ last year. and one of their members is the Manager at the Raleigh NC 4 Wheel Parts. They may have more people coming also.

Well we were planning on coming out but now it's all up in the air. After moving again and now we are being told that any August leave is getting canc'd. If I hear anything different I will let y'all know. Also I have all the tickets that I bought for last year's Camp MJ, after moving I will have to relocate them. Let me know if they are needed and who they would get passed off to if we are not able to go this year.

Where will you be after the move, maybe one of us can pick em up.

We are at Camp Lejeune, when I know for sure I will let y'all know.

If no one can pick them up you can send them down to me.

1317 Muirwood Blvd,
Murfreesboro, TN 37128

I am 100% going.

The only issues I have is getting vendors to get back with me about donations. I think I am going to send out another e-mail to those places that didn't reply.

07-14-2015, 10:27
I just had an eppifanny. ..if I can't get a jeep working maybe I can at least roll down to MJ in the war wagon. May not be wheeling but I can camp and drink. :)

RobsCrawlin7
07-14-2015, 13:41
I'll probably have an empty seat, and if I don't someone will.

jeepdreamer
07-14-2015, 17:57
So this is funny...
I was driving along thinking about this all. As I pull towards a stoplight I'm thinking "dang, this truck is running really well. Maybe I could trailer a heep down to mj?" Just as the thought is completing in my head I hear a scraping noise. Reach the red light and get out to look...I'll be damned if the tailpipe didn't fall off!! Talk about weird timing. Hahaha

Jeeper4life
07-14-2015, 21:08
you can hitch a ride with one of the others coming from VA and tag along in a seat. I will more than likely have an open seat.

jeepdreamer
07-14-2015, 22:28
Thanks brotha. I'm dropping a forced leave (use or lose) after my pt test tomorrow. Leave should go through the weekend of mj so I'm hopeful. Lots to do...

My 1SG and his wife are Jeepers they might be heading up also. I think my 4 day pass will be approved lol

I wonder if anyone not yet a member would want to come and then join? Is that allowed? I bet posting fliers would get people's attention.

Fml. Well... unless some miracle happens I won't have monet to go. Hh6 lost her job today.

Jeepdreamer, Sorry to hear about the HH6 situation. Maybe this is her chance to find that even better job. Lets hope so.

Thanks brotha, I wish. Hell, she was making twice my pay not counting bah. The reality is it's just bad timing. If I get picked up I'll be PCSing in march - ish anyway but 8 months on one check is gonna make the move rough. Not counting bills between now and then. Not what we were planning for. Just have to drop 500 and expend all guns.

blart
07-23-2015, 10:44
Yup, we won't be able to make it this year. We are having an inspection and no one is being allowed to take leave and it doesn't matter that I had the leave in since March. I am currently in a training exercise and won't be back until August, I do have limited contact to the real world it just takes a while before I can communicate back.

Rob let me know if you are going to swing by to pick them up, I will dig them out of the storage unit and having them sitting out. If you do let me know, if not I will mail them out to J.

RobsCrawlin7
07-23-2015, 11:08
I definitely won't be able to get em.

07-25-2015, 13:04
well, sounds as if bad luck is getting to just about everybody, I'm still hoping to make it if all goes well with snafu's engine replacement, but not counting on it very heavily, the way things have gone so far since she put a rod through the block back in march. Just a total commedy of errors, if I didn't laugh about it, I probably have killed myself bt now. Long story short the motor is back together waiting for flywheel bolts so the clutch can be put on then just slide the motor in an pray it runs (first complete engine rebuild I've ever done). Really don't want to miss camp, it will ruin my prefect attendance record. Well, 19 days and counting down.

blart
07-25-2015, 13:19
Dang sorry to hear so many bad luck for us. I will dig out the tickets and get them out after I am done with training event this week.

Next week is a shakedown run at rausch for the new engine, trans, and front springs. Hopefully it all goes well.

Did you ever get those tickets in the mail to me? I have not seen a box.

Ok I have some bad news I might not make it unless I sell a bunch of stuff I bought a metal lathe and used all the money I had saved up for the trip to buy it

jeepdreamer
08-06-2015, 13:04
So as best I can tell I am not gonna be able to go either. The jeep may be done, or at least dang close, but I simply don't have the funds. Hh6 is trying to get whatever she can to make money. We are starting to peruse a legal action against her former employer, and as bad as I want to go I just don't think it will happen. Sorry everybody. Hope everyone has a great time!

Ok, so work has been hectic but I went through the storage unit and I couldn't find the tickets. I got one more place to check tonight and if they aren't there I will let you ASAP. Again, sorry I could get back to y'all sooner.
