Southeastern Regional Overland Rally and Workshop

I can't believe I can't make this! This developed while I was in Africa, but I think there's at least a few members on this forum that are making this. Helping to raise awareness. I know this is timed right around several other events.

I'm definitely attending every year starting next year, since it's in my backyard.

When: September 27th – 30th 2012
Where: Crawford’s Camp just outside Murphy, NC

The Overland Rallies and Workshops is a series of 3 events across the USA with the aim to bring overland and expedition travel enthusiasts together. The event embraces all skill levels of vehicle-based adventure travel and a multitude of vehicles, trucks, 4x4, dual-sports motorcycles, bicycles and more. The Rally is a family and pet friendly event focusing on training and camaraderie, promoting safe and environmentally sustainable adventure traveling off the beaten path in the US and abroad.
