TouRig Weekenders Rally Series
New for 2020 we will be hosting a series of 9 events lead by @werollwithit all across America dubbed the TouRig Weekender’s Rally Series. (Think old school car rally with a vanlife twist.) Mornings start with a coffee show n’ shine and are followed with a cruise and then camping. We welcome guests to come to any part of the series, or all of it.

REI Burbank parking lot
1900 Empire Avenue
Coffee Show n’ Shine
Join us in Burbank where we will meet at 8am at REI for morning coffee and a show n’ shine. This is a chance to see the show TouRig, meet fellow van owners, check out their rigs and make some new friends. It’s also a chance for folks who don’t already have a van to see what they’ll be getting themselves into one day soon.
Please arrive to REI with a full tank of gas and anything you need for the pot luck lunch.
At 10am, after everyone arrives, we will set out on a group cruise to a secret location. This will be a 90 minute drive which will include dirt roads but will be easy for our two wheel drive friends. Our secret destination will be a dispersed primitive camping area. There are no amenities so come prepared. Please note: You will need a California Adventure Pass for this location. Make sure you get this pass ahead of time. They are available here.
When we arrive at the secret location where we’ll be camping that night we will hold a pot luck lunch. We suggest bringing a dish that can feed about 4-8 people. Share a bite and some stories with your fellow vanners!
We welcome guests to come to any part of the event, just the coffee show n’ shine, cruise, or all three (coffee, cruise and camp). Please help us prepare for you by registering ahead of time. Understand that camping spaces are limited so register early if you intend to camp. As most van events are, always remember the pack-it-in, pack-it-out mentality and make a concerted effort to leave no trace while we’re out there. We welcome you to bring your favorite coffee cup and dinnerware as well!
