Re: Overland Expo

Might be there myself. Not interested in the "training" or classes, but am considering going in hopes I can look at a number of camp trailers in one day.

I've already checked out SoCal Teardrops, but I want to see a few other options.

Re: Overland Expo

We're head'ed to the Expo the 17th arrival the 18th. Are we going to Circle the Wagons or just be on our own? It would be nice to have a common camping area. Should we save spots for others and how many?

Re: Overland Expo

Circle the Wagons concept works for me....

Do we have a count on attendees from the Forum?

Re: Overland Expo

Still tentative for me, but fairly likely. I would only be hitting the Expo for one day, so I won't be camping there. Will probably grab a hotel in Flag for Friday night, hit the Expo Saturday, and then bug out for Tempe (my parents house) for Saturday night.

Re: Overland Expo

I'll be there Saturday, but not camping (doesn't seem worth it for one night). If you guys camp in the area, I'll find you and say Hi.

Re: Overland Expo

Earlier I threw in my $0.02 about last year's OE, which we attended, and indicated a possibility we would there again this year. But we just returned to Seattle from a 2-month trip down the CA coast, and east to AZ on a counter clockwise route. After reaching Flagstaff a couple of weeks ago we decided it was at least a month too early to do off the grid camping on the North Rim, and we headed to Death Valley instead, and then up through eastern CA and OR. So this year's OE was just not in the cards. Enjoy!

We documented our trip at http://lugnutlife.wordpress.com . . .

Re: Overland Expo

Yep, my wife and I are going..look forward to seeing you there,especially after meeting a bunch of you at the Valley of the Fire meet- up.Trying to decide between camping on site or somewhere more beautiful and private..difference is having to break camp each AM to come into the Expo. Any opinions on that and ,having no camping time in the area,any thoughts on great places to camp if we DO decide to go offsite ? Looking forward to seeing ya'll there!

Re: Overland Expo

Last year at the Amado, AZ venue we stayed in the provided campground. There were only pit toilets at the campground, but bathrooms with sink and toilet were nearby (not sure how many folks knew that). There were also tent showers set up in back of a restaurant and a commercial campground nearby where one could pay for showers. Those details became clear over the three days we were there. Of course in Flagstaff the arrangements will be different, but we really liked the diversity of vehicles and folks we could easily meet at the provided campground. It would be sad if there was a circle of only SMB's somewhere out in the woods with everyone convincing each other they have the perfect camper! There is a whole world out there and I can't think of any other place where that would be more evident---I think I only saw one or two other SMB's the whole time we were there other than the SMB's in the vendor area. We were so busy meeting other folks, we did not even run into the SMB owers camping there.
