While awaiting delivery of our campervan, we decided to learn more about overlanding at Overland Expo taking place in Flagstaff, Arizona. Think of Overland Expo as a gathering for people who want to explore the world in some form of motorized vehicle – motorcycle, 4-wheel-drive, camper, truck or jeep. In the sailing world, Overland Expo is equivalent to a boat show. In the tech world, the expo is like attending Google i/o or Dreamforce.
Luckily for us, experienced overlanders and friends, Chris & Chris, showed us the ropes and introduced us to the community.
Driving courses and classes using attendee vehicles made the experience dynamic and fun. New friends Dan & Ann braved the obstacles to learn and demonstrate marshalling skills.
For three weeks and 2,000 miles, we overlanded – okay it was a rental car on freeways – our way to and from the event. Check out a few photos from stops at Pinnacles National Park, Pebble Beach, Flagstaff, Joshua Tree, Palm Springs and Kings Canyon.
Bring on Overland Expo 2018!
