I think I'm gonna hop on the bike and head out there, it's only about 40 miles from my house and very flat between. I wonder if I'll have to pay for a campsite if I show up on a bicycle! Probably, the shysters... Laughing

The day passes are cheap and you will get a ton more this year than last year.
Disabled Explorers will be there with the Wheelchair Accessible Van for Expeditions, the Actions Trackchair (tank treaded wheelchair) and a few other goodies....and we will be giving all you able bodied folks a chance to check out the gear.

Of course there will be vendors with cool stuff, the campground will be a show unto itself and they will have panel discussions/films and a bunch more that is open to day passes.

Wow what a different event this is shaping up to be from last year..
Sierra Expeditions with a booth, SDHQ with space...very very cool.

Those of you coming down on day passes make sure to check out all the discussion panels, overland movies and more that is offered.

No charity per se this year, instead the focus is on "doing good as you go", there will be some great info from the Muskoka Foundation, not to mention their very cool rig and way for you to get your hands on an Adventure Trailer.

It's gonna be cool.

Count me in with Expeditioneers! Smile

We're bringing some other exciting new products too ... Airflow Snorkels from Austrailia, Kaiser Lockers from Brazil, and maybe a few other surprises in the works. Smile

My mom owns a home near by and might actually be in town still......that's an additional reason for the hunny and I to try and get one of the days off together to go. Laughing

There is a pretty good trail out of Amado called the Bull Springs Trail. (No more than a 2.5, but pretty, and you end up in Patagonia)
