Chris kindly allowed me to post this notice (which I'll copy in the events section). Roseann and I have just announced the dates and a new venue for the 2012 Overland Expo. It will be held May 18 to 20 near Flagstaff, Arizona, in a lovely forest and meadow setting at 7,000 feet elevation, next to a very cool two-story lodge/restaurant.
More importantly for the Land Rover faithful, the ex-Camel Trophy team members who now comprise a significant portion of our training team have been discussing an ambitious scheme to build a CT skills area that should be a blast. We just need to watch it with them and chain saws in the pine trees.
Land Rover North America has also signed up again to build one of their excellent demonstration courses, which anyone attending is welcome to drive with a Camel Trophy veteran as co-pilot - either in your own vehicle or a new Land Rover.
All the information is here:
We'd like to keep strengthening our Land Rover contingent. I'm hoping to have my RHD Series III fettled by then. Please consider coming either on a day pass or with the weekend package that includes choices of over 70 classes and a bunch of other stuff. We've already had signups for 2012 from people who've been to all three previous Expos - thank you!
