It's coming up again. Who's going to Overland Expo and where are you staying? I know last year was pretty great.

What:
Overland Expo West 2017
May 12-14, 2017

www.overlandexpo.com/west/

Moved from last year to Fort Tuthill a few miles south of flag just off the I-17.

Over 170 classes you can choose to attend (may be a small fee)

Over 250 vendors and Exhibitors including:
Four Wheel Campers,
Land Rover
BMW
Dometic
Turtleback Trailers (and their herd of turtles event)
EarthRoamer
Rhino Rack
KTM
Bilstein
Demello Off-road
Engels Coolers
Global Expedition Vehicles
James Baroud Tents
Rigid Industries
Road Shower
Sierra Expeditions
Fox
High-lift
Tembo Tusk
All-Pro
ARB
Baja Designs
Canyon Coolers
Expedition One
Factor 55
Smittybuilt
Tepui Tents
Total Chaos
Warn
BDS suspension
CBI Off-road
Cascadia Vehicle Tents
SDHQ
Yakima Racks
etc, etc, etc


This is a great place to get deals and see products in person. Also lots of trails around to see and experience.

I will try to keep this post updated with who's going and where they are staying. Some companies will even deliver and install products at the expo so you may be able to save on shipping and install.

Mike, ride your BMW up there, you'll find lots of similar, strangely clad, two wheelers to commune with.

The camping situation is gonna be WAY better this year. FT Tuthill is adjacent to Woody Mountain Road - which is one of the better (very well maintained) Forest service roads. LOTS of camping out there. The farther you're willing to drive, the better the disbursed camping in the forest. No services, but gorgeous.

We have our RV parked near the show on FR 532 - which is technically inside City limits (no camping allowed). We will see how motivated PD is to kick everyone out.

Count on better protection from the wind, more vendors (better food!) and generally a great time.

I'll be there, fully deployed, manning the Trails Offroad Booth. Might be heading up to Cinders on Thursday. Anyone else like to do that?

I may be in for cinders. Not sure if I want to take that abuse though. The Procraps on are their last leg and there's no way my new suspension will be in and installed in time.

I got a few and I'll have patches with me as well. I'm sure Mikey will probably show up as well. Even with his knee
