A Good Rendezvous isn’t a Secret

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.

IT IS OK TO FIRE A VOLUNTEER

IF SOMEONE JUST CANNOT FIT IN; FIRE THEM!

The purpose of this note is to reassure you that it is OK to fire a volunteer when all your efforts to help them fit in, or fix a behavioral issue are just not working out.

There is no law, or anything to stop you from firing a volunteer.

Now please do not get me wrong, our first choice should always be to give a person a chance.  But sometimes a volunteer just cannot meet simple expectations or objectives, and they cause more damage than any good they might do.  You are left with no choice but to fire them!
