There was a very similar looking rig @ MAR for sale for around 40k. Thing would go anywhere.

Planning to attend for the day Saturday but will be watching Matthew.

We are hitting the site Thursday, as early as possible. Coming with Adam Shinn of performance rovers with his 2.8 tgv D2, and my son pulling my conquest with his 4 runner... Let us know, and we will do what we can...

Dude, you just missed MAR and Uwharrie is the next weekend after this with real live wood camp fires and real actual off-roading.

IDK Matthew's path has all of NC looking very wet this weekend. There is no longer any yellow on the graphics like there was yesterday, all red.
935mb and dropping, spooling up. Looks like Cabell and I are making a run down to NC to board up the house @ the shore.

Yeah I know I am missing all the good ones. Life and work have been crazy - been off the net a while.

This weekend is the first one off with availability for travel in months.

I'll be there when the gates open and will try to set up a Rover Camp. Look for a green D-90 with a Maggiolina roof tent.

Waiting for Steve Sanders with Cummins to respond that he'll be there regardless of weather. If he is, Tim Golden from Mastadon in Colorado is flying in and I'll make the trip for the day Saturday.

Heard back from Stephen @ Cummins. He's going to be there rain or shine.

Currently looks like Friday evening and a bit of Saturday morning will be wet, but it'll be clear and nice the rest of the time.

Also my plans changed and I'm going to day trip it.

Expo East was way different than the 2014 event I last attended. They had over 160 vendors, all kinda of great education through the Camel Trophy training. The Biltmore was an awesome upgrade from the farm the y had used prior. No wheeling though, just time to meet up with old friends and make new friends. This may be a good event to think about moving forward...

Jason,
Good to see you yesterday. Too funny we are looking @ the same vendor display and I hear your very distinctive voice. Agreed- I thought it was an awesome event and will not miss it going forward.
