          Yes it is way cool! I have been there officially once but my buddy, the guy who met up with a big pack of the MJR out in Odessa Cyn has been for like the past 10 years. He kept pestering me 'till I went and what a blast I had. It is fun to look at all the nifty rigs and all the procedes go to a great cause. Id actually like to get a whole bunch of the MJR group out there so we can setup a cool campsite.

                Allright! I'll be sure to get the banners and signs out there, so everyone can find each other.

                  Look for a bunch of flashing multi color lights (night time) at our camp. We will have those road "Bots Dots" that have LEDs in them of multi color and will have them all around our camp to keep the motorcycles and ATVs out of our camp. Our camp is usually near the main base camp so the chuckwaggon and toilets are close at hand. I don't even bother bringing much food except snack food and water since the chuckwaggon does all our cooking now. It's just so much easier than packing up the Red Devil oven stove and mess box. Simplistic, easy and fun! We have a blast every year and WE LOVE TAKING THE SIDE TRIP TO DO THE HAMMERS WHILE WE ARE OUT THERE! Hope to see a whole bunch of MJR members out there. Look for the Aftershocks banner as many of this fine 4WD club will be there also.....

                      Maybe we can come and hang out, maybe ride along. We'll see how Rick's Jeep is by then.

                        I was hoping to go to this but I don't think I can make it. I need to get some work done on my axles plus I think I have a brithday party to go to.
