Overland Expo 2013: Post Your Stories, Images, and Experiences Here! (Official)

Approved Vendor
Once again overlanders from all over the world are setting their sights on Mormon Lake, just outside of Flagstaff, Arizona for the 2013 Overland Expo. With over 100 vendors, hoardes of feature vehicles, and countless on-the-road overlanders, this year promises to be even larger than last year's record-breaking event.

Dozens of classes, seminars, demonstrations and roundtable discussions are sure to get you trained—and inspired— to hit the road and start traveling.

The environmentally-friendly Overland Expo is organized by Conserventures, founded by Jonathan and Roseann Hanson, a portion of the profits from the event fund their charity which works to promote conservation through exploration.

For more details on the event, visit overlandexpo.com



If you're at Overland Expo 2013, three contributors from this thread will be chosen to get some free Expedition Portal and Overland Journal swag. Combined with the other 2 (Official) Overland Expo 2013 threads, nine total contributors will have a chance to win a brand-new Axial SCX-10 Trail Honcho RTR Remote Control Rock Crawler.

You can read the full-on nitty gritty details here: http://www.expeditionportal.com/news/2134-overland-expo-2013-share-your-stories-win-cool-stuff.html

We encourage the Expedition Portal community to contibute to this thread—having missed the first few years of the event, I know how valuble the stories, images, and experiences members post can be to those who can't make the event.

This event was one of the highlights for me last year and I regret that I won't be able to attend this year. For those on the fence, just do it! It's an incredible gathering of people, gear, vehicles, classes and some great opportunities to make new friends with the same mindset. Stories around the camp fire in the evening make for some great life memories. Mormon Lake is a perfect venue and the improvements to the location including the driving course are sure to bring it to the next level. Jonathan and Conserventures has done a great job organizing what is sure to be the best one yet!

I'm all set to head up there. too bad I have had one guy go to Thailand (work emergency) and the other guy is wavering about going. I may be solo this year. Setting a budget is also going to be tough this year...

Trying to roll out of town tomorrow, have to finish a bid on a 100 million dollar project first!!! D'oh, work before play so I can play! Hope to see everyone sometime Thursday.

Going from Denver through Moab then Flagstaff, wave if you pass by the boat anchor.
