overland flagstaff

Man, you guys are making me jealous! I went out to the Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake and had a blast! I've only been out to Flagstaff once and it was awesome. I might have to make it out there. I met a guy this weekend up at the Dallas Safari Club Convention who has started a new company making overland trailers http://www.troubadourtrailers.com/

maybe you guys could stop by his booth and convince his wife that he needs a Landy... but, seriously I might have to go out for that.

Just received this email (considerably longer than this...) this am. If you're not registered...what are you waiting for?!?

Dear Overland Experience registrant,

The online class registration system for your Overland Experience package is now ready!
We have 167 classes, programs, and demos (over 300 session-hours) for you to choose from . . . get ready to be blown away.
We are incrementally rolling-out sign-ups based on when you originally registered. You are in the THIRD PHASE (that means you signed up well in advance, thank you!).
NOTE: We roll-in the next group every THREE days, so don't delay.


And just throwing it out there, if someone wants to fly out...pick up arrangements can be made and folks will have extra equipment (just sayin). There are lots of behind the scenes stuff going on with this so come on board.

Going out of Flagstaff you will be passing a National monument with some excellent Pueblo indian ruins. If you take the North West exit from Flagstaff you are an hour and a half from the Grand Canyon then can follow the South side to get back to 89A.

Once you get past Monument Valley you have to make it past the entrances to Valley of the Gods & the Gooseneck. Then you have to go past the turnoff to Mesa Verde & Hovenweep.

Once you get to Moab a tour of Aches is a must. So you will want to spend a day there. Moab is a total waste if you just drive through.

How can you just drive past Monument Valley and just drive through Moab?

If it were me on a tight time limit I'd go North, do a stop at Monument Valley, East to Hovenweep then Mesa Verde then South to Canyon de Chilly then South East to Chaco Canyon then on home on I-40. If I had an extra day I'd hit Grand Canyon South rim.

Thankfully I live in Flagstaff so all these are day trips to get there.

Registered, but not for any specific classes as such. Anything more than another to do while there? Otherwise I can wonder around aimlessly pretty good, got that down.

It would be a shame to drive Flagstaff to Moab and miss everything along the way. As Sinuhe Xavier has said, Moab is the center of industrial tourism in Utah. The best stuff is down south. Cedar Mesa, Elk Ridge, Red Canyon--this is where it's at IMHO. Leave Moab for the day-trip Jeepers and RV crowd.

Thanks all. Just to be clear, I'm a SunDevil and lived in Prescott for 2 years going to ERAU. I've been all over up there. When I say Moab, I'm referring to a general area, but we just don't have time coming from the East Coast to smell alot of roses. The intent is to get a flavor of it from some companions that haven't been there. I'll be looking at many of Chris and Terri Ann's suggestions as we refine our plan to specific camping areas. wish we hada few days. I've been to Moab Jeep Jamborees twice back before my transformation to LR and I get what your saying.

We meeting up with Bill in Amarillo who will be joining our convoy, and have a few friends flying in and driving back. Need to hit up Denver to see a long time friend from College on the way back.

There are a lot of great trails near Moab that aren't overly crowded. For example, if you are coming from the south, you take 163 to Butler Wash road or Comb Wash road, to UT95, leave pavement at the Bear Ears, head through Beef Basin, over Elephant Hill, and then through Lockhart Basin to get to Moab.


That would take a while, but it's a direct line more or less and there is some scenery through there. You get to Moab, run Hells Revenge, and then take the highway home.


Not to mention that if you did want to go to Monument Valley, it is on the way!

Mike, I'm guessing these guys are hauling trailers so that pretty much eliminates the Devils Lane and Elephant Hill awesomeness. There are some good large group camp spots down on Comb Ridge, though.



If the weather is hot, I would book it to Bears Ears and on up to Elk Ridge. Paradise.

Trailers?

Nevermind.

Yeah, even if they got past Elephant Hill, it would probably end badly in Lockhart Basin. That's a shame, that would be a great way to get to Moab from Flagstaff.

For all of you East Coast boys...this is very exciting. Just received this in an email today!

Dear Overland Experience registrant,

We have some breaking news we want to alert you to—although for the vast majority of you, it won't change your plans.

It's been six years since the first Overland Expo was held in central Arizona, and each year it has grown and this year the growth is so big that we realized it's time: Overland Expo EAST.

That's right, we're gearing up for our first show east of the Mississippi:

October 3-5, 2014 just a few miles from Asheville, North Carolina.

Why East? Demand. Although many people do traverse the country (and the world!) for the now famous WEST show, we realize that so many more just don't have time. We've been begged so often we realized it's just time.

Why Asheville? Location, location, location. A day's drive from NYC, the Capitol, Florida, and much of the Midwest. In the heart of Appalachia, just off I-40, it's surrounded by the Great Smokey Mountains and is an outdoor paradise much like northern Arizona. Asheville, like Flagstaff, is funky and fun and full of great food and breweries. Did we mention breweries? Like northern Arizona, it's full of diverse cultures, a crossroads and a melting pot. We've reserved the entire Taylor Ranch in Fletcher, a lovely family-owned farm with beautiful mature hardwood trees, ponds, creeks, ducks, horses, rolling hills and lots of grass. Did we mention grass?

Why October? Beautiful fall weather and the trees should just be starting to turn color.

What will it be like? Land Rover and RawHyde Adventures are both on board to bring top-notch training to our attendees. Graham Jackson, Duncan Barbour, and Andy Dacey are back on board to run the whole program of offerings that makes our event so unique. Like Overland Expo WEST, it's an all-outdoor venue. We opt for beautiful surroundings and a top-quality community experience.

CAN I CHANGE MY REGISTRATION: YES! We realize most of you will stay registered for Overland Expo WEST. If you would rather switch, please just contact us and we'll portage your registration and you'll be first in line. One thing to note: Overland Expo EAST in the first year will NOT be as big as the WEST. It's going to take time to build. We'll have many high quality classes, led by many of the same instructors, though. And many different and new exhibitors.

Of course many of you will want to do BOTH. After all, overlanding is about exploration, and we feel like the American southeast has so much to offer. We can't wait to share it with you!

All the best,

Roseann & Jonathan Hanson, directors and owners
Graham Jackson, training director
Michael Kaiser, sales manager
Alison DeLapp, logistics manager

Guess I have fall expo plans now!

Still looks like we are going to make it , even if we have to drive the D90 . Any thoughts on when people are leaving to head south from the north west . We have two maybe three Rovers headed down from Alaska . We are picking up a buddy's wife at the flagstaff airport the evening before the EXPO . So that puts us there Thursday evening . Just curious of the route you guys will take south so we can plan for that .
