Does anyone know if there will be RV parking at the rally?

By on

Dave, the Overland Rally is not affiliated with Overland Expo. It is hosted by the same folks who publish Overland Journal though. Lyle, there will be room for an RV, but be aware it's a farmer's field, no hookups.

Just registered...now let's hope work understands we both need off! ;-) Is this camping only? Any power at all?

By on

Another question...any meals included?

By on

Meals are not included.

By on

Anyone from Vancouver Island joining in ?

By on

I will miss the old location of this Rally but am totally looking forward to the new venue! Will the famous "Touratech" fire pits and branding irons be there?

By on

Hey Folks, if meals are not included? Where do we eat? I haven't done something like this before. Will there be food and other vendors?

By on

I would be arriving Friday night, riding on Saturday and leaving on Sunday morning. Would the day pass work for this and the two nights camping?

By on

Are these newbie friendly trails? How are the trails?

By on

Are "2ups" able to do the adventure rides, as that is how we will be travelling.

By on

I noticed at some point Touratech is hosting a Wed night pre-rally gathering to go over loading bikes, GPS routes, etc. Correct? Or just an aberration?

By on

Is anybody from L.A. going to this event? Im in San Fernando Valley and Im leaving Monday 24Th early in the morning with my Super Tenere by myself.
