ABE 2015 (Alvord Buggy Experience)


Our annual get together on the Alvord Lakebed will be happening Weds. Oct.7 to Mon Oct.12.This is an informal event open to all WPV.
Alvord is a remote lakebed about 100 miles south of Burns Oregon. It is approx.80 square miles of dry lakebed.There is a hot spring pool on the lake but no other facilities.
Here's a list of what you will need to bring besides what you'll need to enjoy the wind

This is just a minimal suggested camping list for those wishing to camp on the lakebed.

4 season tent with rain fly. The more poles for structure the better. Winds at night can be brutal.

1-zero degree rated sleeping bag per person
Foam sleeping pad, or thin air mattress. Stay away from the thicker air mattresses, they tend to deflate and get cold.

Flash lights, Flash lights, Flash lights!

Camp stove of some kind with fuel.
Don't forget to bring something to cook food in, and eat with.

Clothing for all conditions. High temps during the day and cooolllddd at night! I would suggest a stocking hat for nights to keep your head toasty while you sleep.

Duh Food! You are two hours from the closest grocery store.

Water, 2 liters a day per person folks. See above.

Do you take prescription medications for any reason. Bring them.

This place is huge and can be unforgiving. Prepare for the worst, hope for the best.

This is just a minimal suggestion list. Bring what you need to be safe and comfortable.

Wow two events happening at the same time. I guess with the time difference you could make both in one day.;)
