Re: Overland Expo in Flagstaff May 15-17

The storm has been moved up and now looks to impact the area beginning Thursday afternoon.

MODEL TRENDS HAVE SPEED UP THE ARRIVAL OF THE COLD FRONT. IT NOW LOOKS LIKE EARLY FRIDAY MORNING WE SHOULD SEE MORE STEADY PRECIP EXPAND ACROSS THE NORTHLAND WITH SNOW LEVELS AS LOW AS 7000 FEET FOR AREAS WEST OF A LINE FROM PAGE TO PAYSON.

I'm riding this afternoon and for sure on Sunday if anyone wants to tag along. Sunday should be warm and dry.

My sister lives in Flag, so I'll be flying in (SMB stays home in NY) and staying with her. Definitely looking forward to chatting with other owners about all things SMB.

Camping on the Rim Rd just east of the entry off 87. Will head to Expo in the morning. Weather is good right now, just a little windy.

Okay, forget the weather; I want to see that rig! Then I can get busy waiting until they are "used enough" for me to buy one (price-wise)...

Re: Overland Expo in Flagstaff May 15-17

Ran into Hugh from Safari LTD out of Grand Junction at Late for the Train. He's got a sweet FJ45 Troop Carrier.



The logical thing to do was hit the trails. 18 miles with a little over 2000' elev gain to shake the road dust off.



Trails were nice and tacky after last night's rain.
