Expo EAST

I know its a couple months out.....but who is planning on going? I am thinking of heading down a day early and hang out with J Payne (drink beers) and slide in early to get a "spot" in the camping area.
As usual....I got the am coffee covered.

I was thinking of attempting a spot large enough for a "rover base camp". Don't know how cooperative the management will be with that. Never hurts to try tho.....

Sign me up for a spot in the Rover camp. I will roll in Thursday night or early Friday morning. Think I'll try to do a little trout fishing on one of the days if anyone else is interested

I'll be in attendance along with a few friends. We're wandering around UT and CO for 2 weeks and then making the drive over to Expo on our way back to Florida. I'm interested to see how this event fills out, being the first one.

I know there were group/club camping accommodations at the Flagstaff event, and unless the NC venue offers less real estate I'd expect the same. They'll likely want a rough headcount, but shoot the management an email and you ought to be able to get a spot locked down.

I'm in too. Goal is to have this girl up and running in time for the trip. Rover is homesick and a visit back east will do her some good

I will be in attendance.

Day pass is $25 + a $10 camping fee.
The $300 is for all the classes which you need not attend.
Hope you make it Bill & Jeff !
