I'm interested. What location are you thinking?
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, and now travel the world full time with two kids.
If you want to know more about me, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.

I think 1500 has a few in mind, but I'm going to be adding to the list on Monday. Off the top of my head, there is a cool place in Elbert, CO, and one I need to learn more about in Divide, CO.

I'm definitely interested. I'm in Salida and would be willing to volunteer in some capacity as well. May have a husband tag along- not sure.

Still TBD. We're looking at beginning planning on this (between the original CM organizers, myself, jordanread, and Mr. 1500) shortly. Some conference calls this week, likely, to get some balls rolling. I'd imagine announcements with more details within a few weeks to a month (on not just this, but multiple CMs). :)

Depending on the date and the timing, I may be able to drive up from New Mexico with the Venomous Spaz Beast. I have company between December 19 and New Year's of this year, but should mostly be free afterwards.

P2F- very interested depending on dates.

If we want this to be truly a camping event, then I know of a pretty awesome camping location near Granby, CO. My wife and I used it for a camping wedding reception we had, the site features:
-Free to camp (Is first come, first serve national forest land)
-Essentially a large field, can easily accommodate 50+ people
-Composting Toilets
-Access to a stream on one side (perfect spot for placing kegs or other drinks to keep them cool)
-Easily accessible on a gravel road (no 4WD or high clearance needed)

I know it's a little far from where most of us live in the state, but PM me if interested. Either way, I'll be following this thread for more info.

Well, Granby is just on the west side of RMNP - not far from Denver, Longmont, Colorado Springs, Ft. Collins area.
Though - it adds another transportation leg for anyone who would fly in to Denver.
Sounds like a good site for RVers.
How would keynotes and breakouts work?

This site would definitely be more front-end leg work. People would need to bring/build a stage or amphitheater if needed. It may not be the best option, just an option if any of the other mentioned ones fall through.

Or just have a Mr. Microphone. Depends on how many people there are. Might get away without formal equipment. I was just at CMC - pretty informal.  Nice to have inside space though if the weather is bad (which didn't happen).

Granby is in a really pretty location. I almost suggested that area, but I don't live there.

Good point- there would be no "indoors" area at all.

I guess that would rule out a spring skiing time frame for Colorado Camp Mustache. But what do I know as a Floridian?!?

I just meant that shelters (and other things) could be built - can do that in the snow (igloos!)

Staying in an igloo would knock one more item off my bucket list.

Or a yurt! There are places in CO where you can stay in a yurt.

Yes a yurt is also on my bucket list. The Moab meetup has a possibility of staying in a yurt.

It's close by. Not quite Colorado but down the road, link for anyone interested: Moab, Utah, USA meetup October 18 - 22, 2018

BTW, if anyone want Yurts, come up to Ontario. I've stayed at Yurts once in Algonquin park in winter and it was awesome. I think you can also stay there in the summer. Make it up in December and I'll find an excuse to come keep you company and go snowshoeing :)

I remembered this week about the Colorado State University Mountain Campus! It is available to rent for conferences:
http://mountaincampus.colostate.edu/conferences

No idea how much it costs, but they say, "economical rates." I went there in the 6th grade, but haven't been since.

Interested Montanan here!  I should have made an effort to go to the Washington one when I lived only an hour or two away, but such is life. No time like the present. I would be interested in the cheapest awesome option available, and camping is just fine. Thanks for getting the ball rolling!

I can't speak for availability or if it's in your price range, but this is where my wife's law firm does their summer retreats. It houses up to 50 people and is a little over an hour from Colorado Springs.  The package doesn't come with catering, but catering can be arranged through a local provider.  If price, accessibility, and availability are tolerable it might be out in the sticks too far for reliable internet access.  They advertise that the property itself is unplugged.

Definitely interested.  Although based on the long silence on this thread I'm not sure if this idea is still alive at this point - did another thread get started?

It's still alive. I've allowed procrastination to get in the way on my part, but it's alive. Coma like, but alive.

Hello there,

Very interested and wanted to confirm if there are any new updates and the details of this event.

Looking to get flights booked soon if this event is still happening.

Thanks!

Reviving this thread to see if @mr1500 (or anyone else) would like some assistance planning this Camp Mustache from the CM co-founders? We're doing a renewed push for more local Camp Mustaches, and can provide resources for getting one started.

I'm interested in this and keen to help make it happen! Good idea, @mr1500. I'm an event organizer and travel coordinator by profession, so it's my jam. I'm in the States during 2018-2019, hoping to learn what I can to start a Camp Mustache in Australia on my return home.

I will be in Colorado in early to mid October prior to going to the Moab meet-up. As an outsider, just commenting that this would be a time I could attend a Colorado Camp Mustache.
