I just signed up. This will be my first time to this. Just heard about it at the San Diego meet-up. I'll be in a white van wherever they stick me at the camp. Looking forward to it!

I tried to look at event info, but it looks like you need to sign up and create a log in first. I find that a bit odd.

Let's see if this works ok. This is a copy from the site (images likely won't come across):

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. Again, this is not a commercial event this is just for fun.

Vendors are people too and I know they look forward to events where they can unwind and just be themselves vice SEMA, OEX, 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.

American Adventurist Mountain Rendezvous

Just got back and had a really good time. Saw some familiar faces and met lots of great new people. There were some amazing vehicles up there and the weather was SoCal perfect.

Here are a few pictures but more can be seen here:

We just got back from this years event and had a great time. Here are a few pics I snapped. Seems that roof top tents are trending as are trailers. There were lots of both this year.
