Re: Overland Expo in Flagstaff May 15-17

The first year I went I freaked out the LandRover instructor and he wanted out of the van by the end of the course visibly shaken it was great

Too funny. I will be there but van is Tonto Trails' and I just get to drive it down but that's cool with me. I'll have to pull stuff out of it each day and stash it. Renting a minivan and we can pile the bikes inside and get in some good MTB in the Flag area. I do want to drool over rigs and vendors booths. Got lots to learn.

My wife is a bit nervous about her stint on the course, what is it like?

They have added to the course since I did it and they will talk her though most of it bypassing what they are not confident with

If you have lockers just show her how to engage and disengage. And it's all pretty easy

I'll probably venture out to the Expo for half a day or so but for those interested in a ride I'd be more than happy to hit the trails for those that don't know their way around. Sedona will be getting pretty toasty by mid-May but the Flag stuff will be prime.

Re: Overland Expo in Flagstaff May 15-17

Joe,

We're still debating our travel plans but highly suspect we'll be in the neighborhood before Expo and would love another ride with you. Wouldn't mind meeting a few other folks along the way. If we head to the far north, as the wind seems to be blowing currently, we'll probably want to get started immediately post-Expo. Headed towards a weekend pass right now.

Absolutely Are you going to hit the trails in gallup on the way? I need to get back there.

That's the plan, around the first week of May before continuing to Flag. It would be great to see you there.
