|A rendezvous point near a gas station and convenience store is a real plus.|
While many four wheelers view the trailhead as the starting point of any trip, in reality all the fun begins at the rendezvous point. That is where all drivers congregate initially. Final supplies are purchased if necessary, and trip plans are reviewed. A lot of thought should go into the selection of a meeting place. If the rendezvous spot isn’t chosen properly, the trip may not get off to a good start.
A good rendezvous point looks like this:
- Close to the trailhead, though that’s a relative term, as we will see.
- Offers lots of parking.
- Easy to find.
- Near a gas station and convenience store.
