Who's going to Overland Expo 2014 in May?
 
90% certain I'm going, and will be rolling with a few Bermabrite brothers. anyone else?

Pending rehab we may go again, but might fly- too soon to say.

Which route and any side trips planned?

mongosd2 January 4th, 2014 09:21 PM

I'll be there with Justin from Lucky8…we'll be doing our re-vamped roll over demo and teaching a couple of classes…

you guys need any local info on side trips let me know...

Overlander January 4th, 2014 09:21 PM

route is TBD, but will be hitting Denver either enroute or coming back to visit a friend, with some gratuitous colorado outdoor time enroute. We intend to camp the entire trip. This is a dry run trip testing our gear set before a Central America run. Intend to get my HAM license while there too.

Enroute excursions still TBD. If you fly in, you are welcome to roll with my possy. We are all single driver vehicles right now. It's still early in planning stage and confirming committments.

I might go, not sure yet.

Overlander January 4th, 2014 09:29 PM

I have a vision of an entire Rover section in the camp area...

SMac January 4th, 2014 09:34 PM

Finally within a reasonable distance and cant go. Great, thanks again Uncle Sam.

I did 2 years of college in Prescott and drove every trail that exists in AZ.

Pushing for it this year, but rest of family somewhat divided. If they don't go, would like to arrive early and try some of the trails near area.

Clearly exaggerating but I spent 10 years in AZ total.

and well deserved with my smart ass remark to your offer of assistance. I'll bet you guys know some trails I've missed too! I'd like to have a beer with Dsource members in the crown king pub while out there with whoever is in!

I'm planning to get there thur when camping opens to get good spots together.

So camping set up opens at noon on Thursday the 15th....what "basic camping" area is everyone thinking? I see two "basic camping" on one map and one on another...

Overlander January 5th, 2014 12:49 PM

I think the one closer to the vendors would be better so i don't have to walk so far to get to my fridge!

javelinadave January 5th, 2014 12:52 PM

Closest to the beer concession and/or the crappers!

Bill Larson January 5th, 2014 01:04 PM

ok well just thinking some of you "older guys" like to kick off early...just saying...;)

I'm not driving 2k miles to go to bed early. Cigars and rum til I pass out by the fire is my plan.
