    I didn't see anything about location on there... has that already been decided, or are we going to start taking requests and do another vote?

    The East Coast event will be held at Big Dogs this year. John, the owner, has lowered the price for MJ to be there for a weekend to $50 per vehicle and $30 for the weekend of camping.

    RC's prices have gone up slightly as I found when I went there last Friday. Still $35 to wheel but now $15 for membership. It'll be $5 cheaper at Big Dogs and allegedly bigger and better campgrounds. The first Camp MJ a few of us were stuck sleeping on the gravel and that blew. I'll happily pay a little extra coin for real campsites.

    Secondly, John is a MJ member (we have to find his account hah). Ex-Navy SEAL and owns a couple of jeeps. To quote some of the stuff in the email that will be available:

    "400 campsites, hot showers 24/7, 4 large mountains, 3 large lakes, a beach seen on my home page, rifle and handgun range, rock climbing & rappelling, famous mud pits side by side, night runs, bon fire and Saturday night celebration and more. Big Dogs provides all guides, insurance, medical, recovery, 4WD Training School for free"

    Thoughts? It's a bit more centralized on the eastern US so that's another huge perk to get guys from the south an opportunity to get up here.
