Overland Expo West 2016: Day 1

It’s been just over a year since “Snowverland Expo”, and to say this event is back and better than ever would be an understatement. The weather is warm and sunny, the crowds are bustling from booth to booth, and the smell of food and sounds of laughter are in the air. We walked around and shot just a few of the great vehicles in the vendor section today, and feel strongly that it might be the most impressive showing yet. From LS motor International Scouts to G-Wagen ambulances and Unimogs, there is something for everyone here. In all honesty it would take all weekend to list the great equipment on display, so instead just sit back, relax, and enjoy the photos. Check back tomorrow when we focus on cool gear, accessories, and of course more trucks!

Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Chris didn’t receive a real taste of the outdoors until moving to Prescott, Arizona, in 2009. While working on his business degree, he learned to fly and spent his weekends exploring the Arizona desert and high country. It was there that he fell in love with backcountry travel and four-wheel drive vehicles, eventually leading him to Overland Journal and Expedition Portal. After several years of honing his skills in writing, photography, and off-road driving, Chris now works for the company full time as Expedition Portal's Managing Editor.
