Yes, you surely are welcome to arrive early.
We should arrive by the 15th or 16th.


Seeing this is public land, we are not really allowed to save space. We will make every effort to park people within our group in a large “circle’ish” fashion and will do the best we can to save a lot of space and get people parked within the group.

Seeing this is a large group…You will be parked close to each other!  So if you have never been, please be aware of that so you are not shocked. If you do not care to park within the group, or we run out of room, there surely will be space all around us. So no worries as you will surely still be able to take part in what we have planned.

T-Shirts Now Available: $5 for each item ordered donated to Segs4Vets Foundation.

Sadly this is also the last day of OOBerfest and the party is the send off as we say THANKS for being our followers and getting “Outside YOUR Bubble” with us.

You are surely welcome to say as long as you would like however.  After all, it is public lands.

DONATE to OOBerfest

Now from doing this past few years we have learned that we can not do it alone, well we can and have but it is a burden, and that we do end up putting out some money to “do it up”. Not that we minded doing either as we really enjoy meeting our followers, but last year we had a number of people saying we should not have to do either all by ourselves.  So we thought about it the past five months and came up with something we felt we could live with.  A Donation! 

You see, we want anyone who wants to be able to attend, to be able to. People mentioned paying $50 to $150 per RV, but to us that did not seem right to set a price. So if you do not care to donate to this as money is tight…then that is fine by us. However for those that feel they would like to, we surely would appreciate it as it surely would help to offset our costs.   

Now seeing we do not do this for income, we will go one step further. Any funds we receive over the amount we spend to put on OOBerfest, we will donate to Segs4Vets! We have been working with the foundation for a very long time and you can feel free to verify that with them if you care to. So if you are attending, please feel free to click the button on the right and donate what you feel.

All donations will be kept private. This is a voluntary donation and does not affect access to OOBerfest. Donations are NOT required.



Ok, a quick few things. First…What you bring into the desert, you will bring out. Leave no footprint. When you arrive, you will need to check in with the BLM Host right when you turn onto Plomosa road. (No charge) Then you will head further down the road to find us.

You will be in the desert and will have NO HOOKUPS! Therefore you will need to be sure to have a full water tank and empty black and gray tanks. If you do not have a generator or enough solar panels to run your coach, this really is not for you, as you will need power as well as heat. So conserving is the key, so bring and use paper plates, plasticware, and cups. Things that do not require washing! We will go over some tricks as to how you can conserve the first evening.

Be sure you have fuel in your tanks for the generator and heat! (Propane/Diesel/Gas) 

There is a service in town called the “Pit Stop” where they will empty your tanks and fill your water with good water. They can also fill your propane tanks.

Even though there is a SMALL grocery store in town, it is not cheap. So bring in any food you will want. There are also a few restaurants.

For trash there is a local dump right down the road as you go into town with limited hours. Best thing is to use larger garbage bags and when needed, drop it off on the way into town.

Other than that GOOD LUCK! :)

Time Until OOBerfest!








Number of RV’s Attending: 115

What is OOBerfest and What to Expect

OOBerfest 2017 Highlight Video


This year is a VERY BAD year for the Flu. We kindly ask that if you do not feel well, PLEASE do not come out! I know it should go without saying, but sometimes it helps to say it.

So we, David & Brenda will NOT be hugging people. This is NOT anything towards anyone, it is just a BIG precaution. After all, if we hug someone ill, and then hug someone else, well, you get it. After all, would you want to be the person that gets hugged next? ☺ Happy to fist bump you or bump elbows.


If you have a dog, it is kindly requested that you keep them leashed. We understand it is an open area and BLM land, and that your dog might be just great! But what if someone else’s dogs is not? Their dog may be on a leash and if yours goes up to say “Hey lets play”, it may not go so well. We CAN NOT AND WILL NOT enforce this, as it is not our place. We are just mentioning it as a precaution. This is totally your call as the owner. Please also note that the open desert is a wild area, even the plants bite. Thorns on the ground may become stuck in your pet’s paws or can hurt them if they get into a bush. Booties are recommended if you have them. There may also be coyotes in the area which is another reason to keep check of your pets specially at night!

DISCLAIMER: By being here you are doing so by choice and at your own risk. You will not hold David and Brenda Bott, Outside Our Bubble, responsible for and loss, injury, or death as a result of taking part in this event. The gathering is open to the public, in an open environment, and all precautions should be taken to reduce risks. Please look out for your fellow attendees if they are away for anyone unusual around cars or rigs. You may of course feel free to leave at any time for any reason.

David and Brenda, Outside Our Bubble, have NO AUTHORITY in the area. All matters should be brought to the attention of the park rangers or by calling 911. The camp host at the entrance to Plomosa Road will have full information and can reach the rangers at any time. All in all, this should be a fun and entertaining event as long as we get though the main arrival day Thursday with all the rigs!
