71st Death Valley '49ers Encampment Postponed to 2021

The Death Valley '49ers Encampment is an event that brings many families from several states and countries to Death Valley National Park. When the Coronavirus first impacted the United States the organization hoped we would still be able to have our November Encampment. There are many variables that we have to contend with that are out of our control. We have to think of the health and welfare of our members/volunteers, National Park Service Personnel, employees for Xanterra, and the families at the Timbisha Shoshone Village.

The Board of Directors had decided to wait until the first of September to make the decision on whether or not to postpone the 71st Death Valley '49ers Encampment. Due to the increase of the Coronavirus new infections and deaths totals the Directors cannot see how we can have a successful encampment and be in accordance with the guide lines set by the state of California, Inyo County, and the Death Valley National Park Service. If one person were to contract the Coronavirus while attending the encampment it is reason enough to postpone the encampment.

With only two+ months before the encampment the Board of Directors has decided to postpone the 71st Death Valley '49ers encampment until November 2021

The next General meeting of the Death Valley '49ers is set for September 11th & 12th in Ridgecrest, CA. at the Rodeway Inn & Suites Heritage.

We want to thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing you in November 2021.

SOLOS Bulletin Board at In November 2019 we transferred all members of our Yahoo Groups Bulletin Board to a new platform: If you were a member of our Yahoo group in November 2019, you were automatically added to the new group.

The group (named SKPingSOLOS – Escapees Solos) was created exclusively for communication among members of Escapees SOLOS. This list is unpublished and can be accessed only by moderated subscription, to prevent spammers and to ensure all who join meet the list criteria of being current dues-paid members of the C-BOF. The purpose of this list is narrowly focused for announcing rallies and other gatherings, sharing experiences, reporting travel plans and any other RV-related matters of interest to members.

See for more information on the group, how it works, and troubleshooting tips.
