Other things to know

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 - There is some potable water on-site. Please bring your own water for cooking and drinking. If you run short, there is a tap to top up your water jug.

Food - We will have some food vendors on the field as well.

Groceries/Restaurants/Coffee - The town of Gunnison is literally 5 minutes away with great places to eat and a Safeway for groceries.

Shower - We don't have showers on the field. Some vendors will likely have some for sale. In a pinch, we find a plastic Coke 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 - Flush toilets and running water are available in the central area, and porta potties will be in the camping area.

​Weather – August in Gunnison is usually in the high 70s, but can get chilly at night, so bring a jacket and a sleeping bag. 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 – Please pack out what you pack in. Especially recycling. We don’t have the ability to accept recycling so we’d appreciate it if you can bring it home 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.
