2017 American Adventurist SoCal Desert Rendezvous


Last weekend we were lucky enough to be a part of the 7th annual American Adventurist SoCal Desert Rendezvous held on  BLM land just outside of Anza Borrego State Park.  I was set to tell you all about it, but last night from Adventurist Life Magazine posted an article that sums up the event perfectly.  So, I am just going to share a couple of photos and let you see what Chad has to say.



You know you’re in the right place when you find the weathered, hand-carved sign hanging from an ocotillo in the middle of Anza-Borrego State Park.  The sign moves around from time to time, but it always marks the place where each year something happens that is unique to the adventure travel community.  It’s a gathering where old friends can reconnect, and new friends are made.  It’s a place where you can learn the skills you need to be safe in the backcountry, or get inspired about how to build your vehicle.  It’s a place where you and your family can eat world-class food cooked from a Dutch-oven under a canopy of stars.  And it’s the place where everyone comes to help leave the place better than they found it, by picking up thousands of pounds of trash from your public lands.  This is the SoCal Desert Rendezvous – hosted by American Adventurist.

You can find the rest of the article along with some beautiful photos at Adventurist Life, and if you would like to join us you can check the events page for gatherings on both coasts.

  1. I’ve just been reading about your clean up job. Nice work by everybody involved. Its a shame that people can’t grasp the haul it out mentality to preserve the environment.
    We have a similar problem in the UK with beaches, but that is with debris washing up from the sea.
    Its hard to imagine that it would look like if people like your self didn’t clean it up. Well done.
