3rd Annual Burning Van!

Here we go again! Last year was a smaller than expected but this year is shaping up to be a better turn out than the 1st Annual.

May 24-27th Rimrock Meadows https://goo.gl/maps/JMZzXcbp7BN2

The clubhouse is about a mile down the road and has amenities including showers, bathrooms, Swimming pool and a off leash dog area. There
will be a Honey Bucket onsite for use as well as a full size BBQ. I was thinking we would do a potluck dinner on Sunday night.
GreatWhite will be providing deliocus beer from his brewery Solera. https://www.solerabrewery.com/ Dkgarnet and I will be bringing Black Current Raspberry sour and another brewer friend will be bringing a few different flavors.


Things to be prepared/aware of:
Cell phone service is very weak, Verizon is the only service that really works out there.
Some lakes and points of interest we will cruise to require a Discover Pass which can be purchased at Walmart in-town or online for $30 for the year or $10 a day.

Friday: Arrive and setup camp

Saturday: Cruise to Soap Lake for a float in the afternoon. Bring your favorite float or paddle board.

Sunday: TurnNburn will be doing the off road cruise up to Douglas creek crossing.

Weak maybe for my 1,144 mile trip unless anyone wants to buy a wimpfalia... free install at BV!
If we get enough orders we'll do a discount too. Watch for the post.

This year we will be on the East coast, so I am 96% sure that I won't be able to make it.

No need to worry about that, it's private property and someone will always be on site.

Im with WinnieVan, I'm only going for the vans and beer :cheers: ....I also want to make it back up to Douglas Creek, that place was rad. I think we should do the cruise by Dry Falls to get some pics again, maybe on the way to soap lake.

For those who have not been able to make it out.......its worth it. Super fun, and cool to see everyones builds in person
