That and maybe the long line of LR owners in chairs with beers laughing at folks trying to get up a slippery slope!

I think this has become something that it isn't. Jonathan and Rosanne both love rovers and the culture, and they just got a MOD 110 and a Disco. This is a communications failure, probably on their part, but let's not go and start putting information on the web that the expo is anti-rover. it's not true or constructive.

Enjoy MAR. I'm going to expo because overlanding is a topic I still want to learn more about, and I have gotten a lot of value out of the setups I've seen there and classes I've taken.

We will not have "All the Skittles" this year, unfortunately. He really wanted to show up and take the hazing like a real man....BUT, Bill thought it was best to celebrate his wife's birthday instead. Like a good man.

I am coming up to hit EXPO one more time. There will be a few of us from Florida (Kaz, Aaron, Gabe) so it sucks to hear that there have been communication issues. I figured it was worth giving the event one more chance for improvement and hopefully some lessons were learned by the organizers.

So, Rick, have you or has anyone else heard from the organizers about the "Rover Area"?

Kraig, are you still going to EXPO and are you bringing your keggerator? I will bring a keg to share if you do.

I read on expo that the reason we got the spot we did, (jeep owner) was that we couldn't make it up that hill!
