    Default 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.
