    The Rendezvous is really gaining alot of steam this year folks and looks to be our best outing to date. Between the trash cleanup, the Desert Challenge, the raffle, the meal by OVG and happy hour this is going to be HUGE!

    :cool:

    Big thanks to Tembo Tusk, Adventure Trailers, Overland Gourmet, Sierra Expeditions, Sportsmobile and JPFreek Magazine for jumping onboard to help us make this happen!
