Kelowna BC. (Details to come).
Campfires: We have a central campfire every evening. Small propane fires are allowed at individual campsites, but nothing on the ground, as ground- fires will sterilize the field beneath them.
Kids and Dogs: The Overland Rallies are kid and dog friendly events. We love both kids and dogs, but we recognize that both need to be managed at a large event. Please keep an eye on your kids, and ensure they don’t play in areas where vehicles may be moving about. Dogs must be leashed at ALL times, NEVER left in a locked vehicle (it can get hot very quickly), and PLEASE pick up any poop, regardless of what it comes out of…
Water: Please bring your own water for cooking and drinking. If you run short, there is a store 5 minutes away.
Food: We will have some food vendors on the field.
Groceries/supplies/coffee: The town of Merritt has all the basics, 5 minutes away.
Shower: Some vendors will likely also have some for sale. The river is refreshing! And in a pinch, we find a plastic pop bottle with a few holes in the top works wonders.
Electricity: There is no electricity on the field. We recommend solar power, or a quiet generator if required.
Toilets: Porta potties throughout the site.
Weather: July in Merritt can be warm in the day, and can get chilly at night so bring appropriate clothing, sunscreen, and a hat! The wind can pick up in the afternoons, so some strong stakes for your awning are a good idea.
Insurance: Please note, the Rally does not provide coverage for bodily Injury. Attendees should have their own medical coverage, and attendee vehicles must be fully insured.
Garbage and recycling: Please try to pack out what you pack in. Especially recycling.
Vehicle Recovery: If you get stuck, don’t worry, there are lots of people around to help, but if your vehicle breaks down, it is your responsibility to get it home.
