I'd definitely be down with a mud meet up.
I live in Grand Rapids, so I guess Mid west michigan. If people lived anything like 4 hours or less out of my way to the destination, I would provide transportation. (Just have a five seater little ford, so nothing crazy)
But yeah, these things are hard to coordinate. Anyhow, if it happened, I'd also cook up some tamales or enchiladas or something.
It's not like it's impossible to make something like this happen, jeeze, don't hate, people! haha
(with a small playerbase and low interest, I know it's hard, but a lot of us have been around for a while and don't mind waiting, you know)
