The SoCal Desert Rendezvous started as an idea a few friends tossed around while around a campfire one night. Why were all the overlanding-type events being held in other states or geographic regions, and why were we traveling all that way when we had all of this right here at home in SoCal? Thus began the Rendezvous Conspiracy…
The SoCal Desert Rendezvous is an annual event held in the deserts of southern California. Scheduled for Friday and Saturday, March 23rd and 24th 2012, this family-friendly event promises to be a lot of fun – again!
And the location? Well … here comes the fun part! It hasn’t been announced yet. You’re going to have to do a little homework on your own leading up to this event and once we announce the first coordinate on March 12th, you will get to hone your navigation skills by reaching a checkpoint or two along the way to the Rendezvous. While you may not know where base camp is yet, know that you’re guaranteed to have a great time camping and hanging out with fellow adventurists!
You’ll also get a chance to meet and spend time with business owners and manufacturers who make and sell products built for the lifestyle you love. Saturday morning will begin with the Desert Challenge, and we’ll also be giving back to the community and keeping trails open by hosting a trash cleanup followed by a raffle, happy hour sponsored by Bundu Gear, and dinner sponsored by Overland Gourmet and Adventure Trailers.
