    American Adventurist is proud to announce the 7th Annual SoCal Mountain Rendezvous

    Fire Update

    Unfortunately with the recent heat and winds the mountain is under extreme fire conditions. As of now there will be no fires or charcoal. Propane fire pits are allowed. Please plan accordingly for the Dutch oven cooking.

    LOCATION:
    Camp Tahquitz on Highway 38 (approx. 30 miles from Big Bear) 640 acres at an elevation of 6,500 ft

    A BIG THANK YOU TO THE LONG BEACH BSA COUNCIL!

    The Camp belongs to the Long Beach Council of the Boy Scouts of America. It is a PRIVILEGE and an HONOR for our community to be allowed use of this world class BSA Camp - again in 2017!

    There is a $20 RSVP fee for each vehicle for the weekend (non-refundable).

    EVENT IS FULL AS OF 5/5/2017

    Once this is paid, you will be added to the RSVP list.

    Once you arrive, there will be a cash donation of $40. All proceeds on site will be donated to the BSA for camp maintenance to support the Boy Scouts of America!

    *BSA also requires a signed hold-harmless agreement from each vehicle. Dogs must be on leashes and cleaned up after.

    Here is the "Hold Harmless Agreement" the camp requires:

    The Vision:
    1. California Casual: Come as you are!
    2. Laid Back: No schedule other than the date.
    3. Mountain Man Rendezvous meets Overland Meet and Greet.
    4. Swap Meet: Bring things to trade or sell or barter (this is NOT a commercial event!).
    5. Meet People: Network, maybe teach each other a few things and check out cool rigs.

    The Ground Rules:
    1. Common Sense.
    2. Respect for Others.
    3. Self Sufficiency.
    4. Tread Lightly.
    5. Leave it better than the way we found it!
    6. Speed limit in camp is 5 mph, strictly enforced for safety (kids, dogs). Make no dust.
    7. Use ONLY the established fire rings. No new or improvised fire rings!

    Additional information for Rendezvous Participants:


    ● Please greatly reduce your speed whenever you are driving in and out of the venue or when traveling on local roads to recreation sites. Our hosts will greatly appreciate it.
    ● We have a beautiful venue for this event. In order to keep it this way, we ask that you be respectful, clean up all trash, use common sense, and avoid tearing up the ground more than is absolutely necessary. Please Tread Lightly! We greatly appreciate your consideration in this matter and we know our venue host does too.
    ● We love dogs and believe that there is no better companion to have when you’re on the road, but please note that all dogs must be kept on a leash at all times, no exceptions. This is for their own safety and the safety of others, dogs and humans alike.
    ● The closest gas station is at Angelus Oaks, Mentone or Big Bear so please plan accordingly!
    ● No open fires will be allowed on the property except in already established fire rings which are distributed on the site. No wood allowed from out of state. Harvesting dead-fall is discouraged.
    ● Cell reception is extremely limited around the property.
    ● Alcohol is prohibited during Rendezvous event activities except in camp when these activities are complete, and then responsibly. If you feel the need to ignore this rule on the trail or elsewhere you will be asked to leave.
    ● Firearm laws of the State of California are observed. There are no shooting activities at this event and no firearms are to be discharged on BSA properties.
    ● No other motorized vehicles such as quads or ATVs are to be used on the BSA properties without the express permission of the staff.
    ● OHVs are expected to have common safety equipment and must be registered and insured in accordance with the owner/operators state to operate on CA roadways. Additionally, vehicles should be similarly equipped with front and rear recovery points as well as winch/recovery equipment based upon the trails and conditions.
    ● Self-sufficiency is an expectation.
    ● Flush toilets are provided at the venue.
    ● Access to potable water will be available.
    ● Electrical connections will not be provided for camping.
    ● Trained EMT’s and First Responders will be on site in case of emergency.

    - Please note that this is NOT a commercial event. Bring your own food and water. Bring your own toilet/shower gear.

    ***************************

    A NOTE ABOUT VENDORS:


    While this is not a commercial event, in keeping with the tradition which began at the first SoCal Desert Rendezvous back in 2011, vendors are encouraged to attend and if they happen to sell a few things to friends out of the back of their rig that's their beeswax. Just no tables, Ezy-ups etc.

    Vendors are people too and I know they look forward to events where they can unwind and just be themselves vice SEMA, Outdoor Retailer, Overland Expo, etc. That's what the Rendezvous events are all about so if you work in this industry, but don't want to work, come on out!

    If you are a vendor and are interested in getting in on sponsorship or the raffle please contact me via PM... thanks.
