- What does the registration fee cover?
Lots of awesome stuff!
- 2 nights at Fir Group Campground. Campground is equipped with running water, shower and toilets. (Whew!)
- A swag bag with a Limited Edition Overland Bound #offthegrid t-shirt and custom patch
- Fully catered dinner (including beer/wine) on Saturday night by Mike Johnston from Friday Night Cooking (fridaynightcooking.com)
- Each rig will be photographed by Barry J Holmes during our rally down the Buck Rock Jeep Trail. You’ll receive an action shot to share on social. (barryjholmes.com)
- Is the registration per person, or per vehicle?
Per person due to the custom nature of the swag bag. We’re offering a discount for groups of 5 or more. Just shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your roster!
Registration fee does not include any costs to enter the park.
- Dude. My rig is not perfect/equipped/outfitted. Do I need a fancy overloading vehicle to attend?
Absolutely not. We’re about getting outdoors and connecting with like minded folk, not being fancy pants. Access to the campground is off of Kings Highway and can be reached by anyone.
The trail has the following recommendations: Off Highway Vehicle, high clearance 4 wheel drives only, and locking or limited slip differential recommended.
If your vehicle is not fully equipped for the Buck Rock Jeep Trail, we’re positive there will be plenty of seats available in rigs for you to participate in the rally. Just let us know beforehand so we can match you up with one of our community members!
- What should I bring to the campsite? What equipment will I need for the weekend?
Fir Group Campground can accommodate up to 100 people and is surrounded by trees. What this means is plenty of room to pitch a tent, park an adventure trailer, hoist a hammock, throw down a cot, etc.
Due to extreme fire danger campfires are no longer allowed. Persons with a valid California Campfire Permit may use portable stoves and lanterns with shut-off valves, using gas, jellied petroleum or pressurized liquid fuel. Long story short… If you have any of the equipment listed above, BRING IT. We’re going to need it for Saturday Night’s feast.
We’re in a drought out here. Water in short supply, please use water wisely.
- What meals do I need to cover?
Plan to bring your own meals for Friday night, Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.
There might be mimosas when we reach the main clearing on the trail Saturday afternoon. That’s up to Mrs. Overland Bound.
- What will the weather be like?
End of September can be a wildcard in California. We will email all attendees prior to the start with updates on weather conditions.
- What happens if I have to cancel my trip?
Due to upfront costs for the group campground, t-shirts, patches, catered dinner and amazeballs photography, we cannot issue full refunds for cancellations. We’ll send you your swag bag, and you’ll get a $25 credit for the next Overland Bound #offthegrid rally.
- Can I bring my family? Is this kid friendly?
Yup. We encourage it! What’s better than going outdoors with those who are closest to you?
- I have a question you totally didn’t answer.
No problem! Shoot and email to email@example.com and we’ll get back to you pronto!
We can’t express enough how excited we are for this event. We can’t wait to meet you all in person, shake hands, share a beer and a trail story, and just enjoy the great outdoors. Please join us!
