OTHER THINGS TO KNOW

Campfires – We have a small elevated central campfire every evening. Small propane fires may be allowed at individual campsites based on current fire-danger levels, but that is always subject to change.

Kids and Dogs - The BC Overland Rally is a kid and dog friendly event. 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 - Bring your own jerry cans. The town of Merritt is nearby if you need additional water.

Food - We are planning to have food on site, the same as prior years.

Propane - Please bring what you need

Shower - no but there is a creek right beside the camping area if you need a refreshing dip.

Electricity – There is no electricity on the field. We recommend solar power, or a quiet generator if required, but generators must be shut off at 10pm.

Hookups - There are no RV hookups at the Rally.

Weather – The weather in BC is unpredictable. It can be hot (20s to 30s) in the day, and cold (single digits) at night, with a chance of rain as well. Bring appropriate clothing, sunscreen, and a hat!

​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 – Containers will be available for returnable beverage containers. There will be separate containers for trash. If you have other recycling we can't take it, sorry, either trash it or bring it home please for 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.

Be Bear-Aware. Please don't leave food around your campsite. Any food waste should be bagged and put into the trash bins so we can transfer it to the bear-proof dumpster.
