I am thinking about attending but don’t know much about the event. I was drawn in by the desert cleanup but that is now not happening. Besides a cook off what else goes on? I also cannot be there on Saturday. My wife would be with me and has to be back Saturday. I don’t want to take a valuable spot.
Also, with 130 spots, is this more a party or a camping trip?

 I don't think you would be taking up a valuable spot. There are spots for 130 vehicles with no limits on how many people in each vehicle. It's something in between a party and a camping outing. They will put together runs on trails or you could take off yourself with a couple people and do the same. Everything is pretty low key so you can decide for yourself what you like to do. Sage Bromax and myself tend to set up or camp on the outskirts and stay there. Were not being unsocial we just enjoy each others company. If folks drop by were more than happy to spend time with them for the most part. Some folks elect to join the discussions held normally by the main fire by day and hang out there by night. The classes/discussions are well put together and range from first aid to self recovery etc. Many people walk around and learn about what everyone else is doing with their vehicles and improving self sufficiency while out and about. The raffle is always a lot of fun and our group has always faired well in loot. All in all its a fun trip where you can meet lots of good folks or hang out for some much needed down time.

I think I’ll sign up. Nothing says I can’t leave if it’s not my thing. Thanks for the clarification. I will be on the outskirts as well.

My youngest son will also be showing up with his new (to him) 2018 Frontier Pro-4X.

Youngest son (Dylan) has a screen name of DangerWillRob on the Am. Exp. site.  Not that he is a science fiction fan, or anything.  ;)

I was 96, I didn't even look at the dates before sending payment.  I will be in AZ that weekend so I won't be able to make it.

  Well that stinks.... I "think" there will just be 8 of us out there for the event in looking at the AA site.

Do I get a prize??

I am VERY excited for a new location. 
$40 donation to CORVA, which is an awesome organization.
Hey , is the location near Carrizo Summit just off Bradshaw Trail?
I was using the 2013 Coordinates ??

Im assuming you are thinking of the 2014 Coordinates. I tried finding the DR of 2013 but nothing on their subforum. I found the 2014 Coordinates that are very close to what you say. Not sure if its gonna be this spot but I would doubt it since I do remember Dave stating that they are brining back old school

33.599581,-115.536937

"LOCATION: New location, coordinates will be posted here prior to the event. For those who were around in the beginning, we're going old school Rendezvous this year!"

They may mean the coordinates will only be revealed shortly before the event, not that they will use an old location.
