Primitive Rendezvous
Body: 

The Primitive Rendezvous is a step back 150 years in time. It is a re-creation of an 1840s fur trapper market of the northern plains territories when the mountain men would come down from the hills every summer to sell their pelts and get supplies before returning to the mountains. Today's rendezvous re-creates that same type of camp for about ten days every summer in locations around the country. It has turned into a family-oriented camping experience that gives people an idea what it was like to live back then. On most days, nothing from the 21st century is allowed in camp. We visited last year's New England Rendezvous that was held in Pawlet, Vermont, for a step back in time.
