Default 2012 Meetup Camping Trip PLANNING

This thread is meant to help people who are planning the camping trip, toss around ideas, and post group discussion times.

If you would like to help plan the camping trip please post here that you want to join the planning team. Anyone is welcome to help plan this awesome part of next year's meetup. Most of the planning will be done via IRC group discussions. If you have questions about IRC, PM me.

Please leave this thread for planning purposes only, any questions/suggestions should be posted in the general discussion thread for the camping trip.
