What is The Pilgrimage?

  • 00Days
  • 00Hours
  • 00Minutes

The Pilgrimage is a gathering of folks who are enthusiasts of Overlanding and Overland vehicle-based travel. Whether on-road, off-road or somewhere in-between, we enjoy being prepared and self-reliant, and take pleasure in the journey not just the destination.  

There are no strict requirements to participate, there are tracks to travel for people of all skill levels and vehicle parameters. It’s not a competition, but you’ll definitely feel like you’ve won at the end of the day.

You’ll be provided with a primitive camp site at our base camp and digital maps of the vast array of routes available along with their difficulty ratings and a wide variety of places of interest along the way.  

 

Check in, Registration & Check-out

Please feel free to arrive at the venue any time after 11am on Thursday. Catherine will open check-in at the garage at 11am. Please note that Event attendees will not have access to the field before 11am. After 11:00 am, you can set up camp and then swing over to the garage to check in afterwards. “Drive-up Registration/check in” at the garage and will open at 11am and stay open until 9 pm on Thurs (if we’re not there when you pull up, please wait for a few minutes and we’ll be along). You’ll present your vehicle insurance card, sign your waivers, pick up your vehicle decals, if you like, buy some Pilgrimage apparel (while supplies last!).

NOTE: YOUR VEHICLE DECAL MUST BE PLACED SOMEWHERE ON YOUR VEHICLE AND EVERY VEHICLE AT THE EVENT MUST HAVE A VEHICLE DECAL ON IT

With the sole exception of dedicated non-camper tow rigs attached to trailers parked in the north pasture trailer zone.

Pilgrimage staff will be checking all vehicles for the Pilgrimage decal during the event to confirm that all vehicles at the venue have been registered. You can check in at any time after 11:00 am on Thursday, so don’t sweat it if you’re planning on arriving later than Thurs. Just come find us. If you get here very late at night, please pull into the driveway and camp near the garage and register in the morning. We will be having a welcome/info gathering meeting on Thurs at 6 pm at the main tent. If you still need information after that, please ask any Pilgrimage Staff Member (they’ll be wearing the orange baseball caps).

On Sunday, the event area must be vacated by 11:00 am. People are welcome to leave as early as they want although please be respectful to those around you if you have an especially early departure time.

Camping

Pilgrimage camping is rough, rugged and largely left up to you. While we do have some pasture space, it’s rather limited. If you want privacy and a little seclusion, you must TAKE TO THE WOODS in the flat area across the brook! Quiet camping is in the upper pasture and north pasture. Please keep your setup to a minimum of space as we want to make sure everyone gets a spot.

Please don’t expect trade-show parking lot camping at Pilgrimage. This is overlanding and we expect all of you to be able to make yourselves comfortable in rough and rugged surroundings. Regardless of where you choose to set up, you’ll still only be a few minutes’ walk to the main tent. No one will feel like they’re too far away.

Please use common sense. Please be respectful to each other, the staff, and local residents.

Lastly, do not block the camping access routes when you set up camp to aid in the check in and check out process.

Very pleased to announce the Hammondsville Tavern is now open right at the bottom of the road. It’s a .4 mile walk from the event area to the Tavern. It’s also owned by a good friend and fellow Rover guy. The tavern has an amazing selection of local VT brews both on tap and cans along with some amazing beer from around the country. The menu is ever expanding. I’m sure this will be a popular hangout during the event.

Participants in The Pilgrimage will use their well-appointed vehicles to venture out into the Vermont backcountry while making stops at local shops, country stores, breweries and historic sites. Many love to find remote cemeteries and imagine how Vermont looked when horse and buggy meandered the ancient roads while some just come to take in the amazing fall foliage and enjoy the time back at camp.

Remember The Pilgrimage is a dog and kids friendly event. For children’s activities we have set up a play area by the brook. We will also have a children’s play area by the house near the vendors area for the evenings.
