ITS GO TIME!!!! Babes in the Dirt 4 is in full production mode and we are on site setting up to ensure you have the best time of your life! Since we are not available to answer all your emails while we build out the experience for you, read this entire post at it will answer 99.9% of your questions.
Registration is closed but do not fret! If you missed the cutoff for registration, you can pay the $20 per non registered guest entrance fee at the gate + $10 parking per vehicle. Cash Only (Sorry! No wifi). Thanks for understanding <3
Welcome to our most bare'ish bones campout we produce, Babes in the Dirt. This email covers it all so if you still have a lingering question, this means you haven't (a) read this blog in its entirety, (b) gone to babesinthedirt.com and read all the information pertaining to every detail, or (c) the question is not something vital <3. Grab a coffee, sit back, and give us 3 minutes of your time to review the below.
This year we did get some MAJOR upgrades so make sure you educate yourself on the amenities the site offers (click the events tab). There are no fire pits for grilling and coals are prohibited due to fire protocols. Small camp stoves are ok (Jetboil makes a great one!). A food truck is also on site (full menu is linked on babesinthedirt.com/events). Plan accordingly.
RULES AND REGS
We know these are no brainers but we have to remind all guests one more time as violation of any of these rules & regs result in the attendee being kicked out immediately and banned from all future events. We take your safety and our guests safety VERY seriously.
- Event is 21+
- Ladies only :)
- Don't forget your $10 per car/ truck rv/ etc cash fee that must be paid at kiosk
- Must have government issued ID to enter
- HELMETS ON anytime a bike is in motion. Nothing will get an attendee kicked out faster than riding without a helmet. We have a 0 tolerance for "stupid".
- No drinking and riding. A ranger will escort anyone who apprears to be riding intoxicated off the property.
- No ripping through camp on your bike or mini bike. Keep speeds low at all times when in camp.
- No burn outs or hot doggin. It's not only super lame but it damages the property.
- Trash must be properly disposed of. Please help us keep the site clean & leave no trace.
- Wristbands must be worn at all times. Do not take off until you leave for good as our staff will be checking.
- Parking decals must stay visible
- No Eazy Ups can be set up for safety reasons (far too windy!)
- No burning of any kind at the camping spaces
- No charcoal grills are permitted
- No one is allowed to hang banners or signage at their camp site. It obstructs the natural beauty of the park and it's not fair to our sponsors who've put a lot of work into this event.
- No one is permitted to sell or handout anything on site (no stickers, flyers, business cards etc). We spend countless hours cleaning these items up as people trash them 99% of the time and again, it's not fair to our sponsors.
Alright! Now that the worst part is over, Let's get to the "what the hell do I bring" portion. By no means is this list the all mighty everything under the sun kind of list but rather necessities we think are important. As always, if you have special needs, pack what YOU need to stay comfortable.
CAMPING BASICS | WHAT TO BRING
- Tent (there are no trees for hammocks). Hot Tip: Pre-check your tent to ensure all parts are there. Nothing is worse than missing stakes, rods, or flys.
- Sleeping Pad
- Sleeping Bag Hot Tip (check weather to see temps to see if you'll need additional blankets)
- Water bottle and a gallon of water per person per day! There is NO drinkable water on site
- Cooler full of snacks and adult beverages (extra favoritism points if you give Ashmore a Coors Light).
- Wet wipes / face wipes
- Sunscreen! The weather is looking bright and cloudless!
- Basic toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, face lotion etc)
- Portable phone charger
- Hand sanitizer
- EXTRA toilet paper. It's for your own good.
- Your favorite pair of sweatpants to chill in
- Camp chair
- Trash bags. You are responsible for your garbage | leave no trace
- Pillow (camp size)
- Extra fuel for your moto
- Clothes for warm days and cold nights (we will have Babes in the Dirt hoodies and windbreakers for sale!)
- Your motocross gear if you have it
- $$ always have cash on you no matter what. Where we are set up has 0 wifi so no credit cards can be used.
- $$ cash for merch (just wait until you see the Babes in the Dirt exclusive merch!)
- $$ cash for food truck
- $$ cash for coffee
- Credit Cards (doing our best to get wifi)
- Camera or GoPro
- Positive mental attitude. Be nice, say hello to your neighbor, and remember, ladies are here because the love to ride dirt or are interested in it.
- HOT TIP: Before you start packing up, have your dirt bike serviced and ensure it has a spark arrestor BEFORE you come to the event. Tickets can cost up to $800 in fines as the state park takes fire prevention in California very seriously. As always, it is no one's responsibility but yours to fix ya hooptie so take it in and be confident that your bike will be a runner.
Have more questions? We have a feeling you might want to cruise babesinthedirt.com/events as everything that is slightly important can be found there w/ clickable links. If it's not there, relax, we promise it will be ok!
Safe travels and see you at noon on Friday!
