  4. From my buddy John Hunter: Howdy all! That favorite time of year is coming ..100 Degree Temps are gone. (Pray that they are) and the holidays are coming. Family, gifts, cool weather to go 4Wheelin'... but most important... it means the greatest 4x4 bash in a parking lot is back once again. Its a biggie. The 15th Annual BBQ, and it goes down on Saturday, Dec 7st, starting at 3 PM. 15 years~~. Time to celebrate! For a lot of you, you know the drill and what goes down at Hunter's BBQ. For those that are new to the scene, or, of the select group that cant remember from last year, or years before... This originally was started as a way for the group to get together as club, in one place to meet face to face. Get ideas, tell stories, check out and show off jeeps and projects, and most important, hang out and make new friends. Read through for all the info. Here is the short scoop. When: Saturday, Dec. 7th 3:00 PM - till we close it down. (Usually about 7-8) Where: Hunter Offroad 625 S Smith Tempe, Arizona, 85281 Here's the gist. Everyone brings a little bit of food, and there is plenty for everyone. One huge pot luck. Bring a pack of burgers, a pack of hot dogs or soda. Bring a side dish, bean dip or ketchup, etc. Got a BBQ grill? Bring it and be a hero. Grills are always needed. Bring some cash for raffle tickets. I am going to try and spring for long sleeve shirt T-shirts this year and try and get a some vendors there as well. Bring some chairs to sit in, an a table to on if ya got it. Oh, dont forget the camera. Check below for all the info. Ok everyone here is the News and Notes for the BBQ, this will get updated as things progress. This year will most likely we will have some good groups raising for charity. I will be "Stuffing the Buggy again this year for the a Toy Drive for the Sheriff's Office For starters, here's the basics and how-to rules for the BBQ, for all of you rookies coming for your first time; or for those of you, cant remember the last one .. This will be the main thread for the BBQ. If there are changes, they will be added here in this post. Watch the "update" date to see if anything has been added. Notes will be added. (Such as more tables or if I need more BBQ grills, because you can never really have enough tables and BBQs) 1) First Rule, And most important. Food. Everyone brings a little. Everyone will have alot. Bring a side dish, bring a few bottles of ketchup, plates, drinks what ever. If you can, post what you are bring here so some folks can get an idea what you are bringing. One thing I ask.... If you buy meat, try and buy matching buns, helps cut down on being too lopsided. Bring a cooler with ice and have a freind bring sodas or water. You get the idea. For those of you thinking, "I should tell him to make a list", (it happens every year), it is IMPOSSIBLE to keep track of what everyone is bringing. I have 100 poeple signed up. I will have 150 show up. I go with the rule, "average in the chaos". All though, for several years, Rox does a darn good job keeping the Chaos together 2) The W's of the BBQ Where: Hunter Offroad Parking lot 625 S Smith Suite 1 Tempe Arizona 85281 When 3:00 PM Saturday, Dec. 7th. It will kick-off at 3 O'clock Parking lot usually fills up pretty early. If you want to get in the parking lot and have a good spot, come early. Parking lot will be open by 12:00 if you are bring a trailer, please park it down the street to save room for the rigs who cant get into the parking lot Why its done: Goes back to the roots of the very first one... Allows everyone a chance to meet other Jeeper's and other 4wheeler's and swap ideas, check out other rides and get ideas, make friends and have a good time. Most fun you will have with your 4x4 in parking lot. There are a lot of new faces this year and should be plenty of new people from other clubs. So feel free to spread the word. 3) RTI Ramp, It will be good times as usual on the Ramp. Show everyone what you got. See if you improved over last year. Or just have fun and flex out for the camera. Lot's of pictures and probaly some tire climbing. But, with the general nonsense of people driving up on wheels, its fun, but its easy to get carried away. A few rules to remember: No Rolling Off The Ramp on purpose..... well, at least give a warning if you are going to show us your skids plates and drive shafts. 4) The Infamous "Screw 'Em Raffle I know last year I had some local business really kick in for the raffle. I am always looking for things to dontate, 4x4 related or not... All the proceeds go help cover some costs of the BBQ then rest goes to a chairty or a good cause we pick as a group. If anyone here has a local business, regardless if its 4x4 related or now, conact me if you would like to promote. If you would like to donate, contact me. This list will get updated soon. The Raffle Overview. 1 Dollar a Ticket. 12 for 10 bucks. *If you wear a Hunter Offroad T-shirt, you also get a free raffle ticket. *If you deck out your ride in Christmans decoartion, you will also get free ticket for that. Also, if you want to bring can food items, I will make sure they get to St Mary's.. 5) Personal Beverages at the BBQ? I have NEVER had a problem with folks having some cold ones in all the years I have been doing this, (over a decade) but I have bring it up. Only thing I ask, remember, it is a family event, so take care and mind your self. It is private property so you can enjoy. If you like to bring some cold ones and talk shop with your buddies, go ahead and play nice and be prepared to share with the host. And my standing rule goes, I may or may not tell you what is my soda... 6) Selling stuff Swap meet ideas. Usually folks will want to bring stuff and try and sell or swap stuff. I have no problem.. Thats what this is all about. Got some old shocks or Jeep parts, bring and put them on display. Old winch you wanna sell? Stick out there. Only rule, dont bring so much stuff, that is takes up room in the parking lot for people to park. If you have something bigger, leave it on the street. I want to save room for folks to setup their chairs, and allow as much room for people to park as possible in the lot. Usually a Jeep in a place will still havesome room in front, behind or besides to display stuff. That's fine. 7) Kitchen Help I need BBQ's and tables for the food... always do. More the better. From the past, 5 normal size grills can cook all we need im the time to feed everyone. Be a hero and bring a grill. We are always looking for volunteers to help. Also, anyone want to run the kitchen area? I have found it does help to have alittle direction. Also if anyone wants to donate to the raffle, Please contact me. In year's past we have had gift certificates for a restaurant other club members bought, to a free therapy massage by a another club member's private business, gift cards, or even the classic re-gift. Email: hunteroffroad@aol.com or call 480-557-7577 Do not to forget to bring Tables and chairs to sit on too for you and for others. Also, I will need BIG tables for Kitchen Area. Contact me if you have some. Will need at least 4 to 5 3x8 tables. That should cover the bulk of it. This post will be the one I update so check it for the news. Best Regards, John "Hunter"

  6. Hello all, I have been lurking around your site for awhile. I guess it would be time to join up. I would like to invite the members here to a car show fundraising event. The Gilbert Police Department is hosting a car show fundraising event to benefit the Special Olympics Unified Sports Program. The event is being held on November 9th 2013 at the SanTan Village Mall in Gilbert, AZ 10:00am-2:00pm. Their are several other offroad clubs that will be in attendance along with many other clubs and vehicle types. I will be out there with my 04 TJ and Tentrax trailer. We would love to have more offroad type vehicles their. If you have a expedition/overland type trailer feel free to bring it along with your rig. Several of us will have ours out there all set up. The registration is $15. We have pre-registration on our website or you can register the day of the event. Same price. We have lot's of stuff going on at this event (food, music, raffles, 50/50's, police K-9 demo's, SWAT displays, vendor booths, etc). The original 1966 Bat Mobile will be there. The owner is going to allow folks to sit in it and have their picture taken for a donation to Special Olympics. Awesome piece of automotive history. Hope to see some of you out there. If you bring a vehicle out, make sure you mention you are part of this club. We are trying to get clubs members to park together if they want. If there are several of you, feel free to bring out your club banner. Other clubs will be bringing theirs. Feel free to call me if you have any questions at all. http://www.fiveocarshow.com http://www.facebook.com/fiveocarshow Thanks, Benny 480-620-4224
  7. Below is a template you may find helpful when posting a trip. Just copy & paste into your own new thread. A couple notes: We usually use the following format for the title... Date: Trail/Area: Rating: Near Town, State: Lodging (example) 1/20 - 1/25/2000: Rubicon Trail: Difficult: Near South Lake Tahoe, CA: Tent Camping Also add your event to the calendar with a link to your sign-up thread to ensure it's seen by everyone. Just send us a PM or use the Contact Us form if you need any help! -------------------- Template -------------------- Trail/Area: A general overview of the trail or areas you are running. Please list a difficulty rating of Easy/Moderate/Difficult. We use these as pinning down an exact number rating is often not possible. Listing further details on expected trail conditions are helpful (shelf road, narrow, brushy, rock crawl, steep loose climbs, scenic forest road, etc.). If you've never been to the area and aren't sure what you'll encounter then be sure to say that (we note those as "Exploratory" trips usually). Lodging: (for multi-day trips) Please list the lodging situation here for multi-day trips. If it's different for each day then put the info in the itinerary section instead. Examples: Dry/dispersed tent camping, Campground with tent & RV areas, Motel, etc. Itinerary: List the meeting place & time and provide a map link or directions. Mention when and where the trip will end if known. For multi-day trips, please give a list of the overall plan for each day. Additional Info: CB Channel (usually 4) and/or HAM radio info (simplex freq and repeater info if known). Should people bring lunch? Everyone should bring snacks and plenty of water on any trip, no matter how short! Do participants need a permit or are there other restrictions? Are pets allowed? Weapons? Long haired freaky people? etc. Expecting crazy weather or other special conditions? Sign-Up: If you have a participant/rig limit, list it here. Indicate your trip leaders and then keep a running list of everyone that's signed-up by editing the first post. ----------------------------------------------------- That's it and have fun! Be sure to monitor your thread and answer anyone's questions. We'd love to see what you did once you return - just post a new thread in the "Trip Reports & Photos" forum.
  8. Anybody what to go somewhere to a show noobie on the basics? I'm out here on the westside.
  9. last minute notice i know... but there's a giant moon and so anyone interested in a night run tonight off Hwy 87? i was thinking meet near Fountain Hills at 5:30pm at the Baja gas station (across from the Ft. Mcdowell Casino entrance)... head up the 87 and run up the normal road to Mt. Ord and then down the back-way. the back-way trail is probably a 2.5 out of 5 normally, but there are some washouts and shelfy areas you have to be mindful of so it should be exciting in the dark! it is a very brushy trail, though you can fit a full-size if you don't mind scratches. any stock high-clearance 4x4 like a Wrangler, Tacoma, etc. should be ok.
  10. Next weekend in Congress, AZ at Thunder Rock Off Road Ranch: The race will be held on Saturday, September 28th allowing drivers as much time as possible to make the race. The site will be open to spectators. Cost to spectators is $15 a day and $25 for the weekend. Camping is $10 a night per vehicle. Pre-running and registration will be on Friday, September 27th and late registration will be available Saturday morning.

  11. ... What: This will be another one of LO PHAT's crazy night runs. That means you must come with a great attitude, be willing to try various challenges and obstacles, and plan for the possibility of the unexpected. Parts of the trail can be challenging, and body damage could occur. Vehicles should have a lift and 33" or larger tires. Having at least one locker is strongly recommended, but those wanting to run the trail open/open are welcome to do so provided that they have adequate wheeling experience and bring appropriate recovery gear. Where: Powerline / Hackberry When: Friday, August 23, 2013 We will depart as a group from the Chevron gas station on the north east corner of the US-60 and Idaho at 6:30 pm in the evening.

  12. I'll be helping to lead a group at Sycamore Creek this evening. There will be a huge mix of driver experience, and vehicles will range from stock 4x4s to well built Jeeps. My only agenda is to show some of the newer guys and gals around the area while giving them an opportunity to gain some experience with their vehicles. If anyone here is interested in getting out for a few hours, I'd love for you to join us. If you are coming from the north and/or west, there will be a group meeting at the Baja gas station at Fort McDowell and the 87 at 6:30 pm. If you are coming from the south and/or east, there will be a group meeting at the Kwik Trip gas station at Ellsworth and University at 6:15 pm. Please post here if you're interested in going. I hope to see some of you out there.
  13. Hello all, I'm going to put together a couple of night runs this month, but first I want to gather some feedback from those of you who might be interested in going. Generally speaking the trails I'm considering will have an overall moderate difficulty rating with the availability of optional obstacles for those wanting an even greater challenge. I typically require that vehicles have a lift, 33" or larger tires, and at least one locker for these types of trails. Exceptions can be made on a case by case basis depending on your level of experience. Keep in mind that it will be dark, so these particular adventures will be more about enjoying the technical aspects of off-roading rather than the surrounding scenery. I'm interested in knowing if you would prefer: a) Friday night into Saturday morning night runs, and/or b) Saturday night into Sunday morning night runs and c) earlier start times (meet between 6:00 pm and 7:45 pm), and/or d) late evening start times (meet after 8:00 pm) Please check all of the poll options that apply to you. Additional comments and any questions are welcome in this thread. Thanks, LO PHAT

  16. ... This year's "super" supermoon occurs on Sunday, June 23, 2013. Since most of us have to go to work Monday morning, however, a Sunday night run wouldn't be all that ideal. Fortunately the moon is expected to appear almost as large, full, and bright on Saturday, June 22, 2013. CLICK HERE for more information on the "super" supermoon. ... What: This will be another one of LO PHAT's crazy night runs.* That means you must come with a great attitude, be willing to try various challenges and obstacles, and plan for the possibility of the unexpected. * OK ... Don't expect too much craziness. This will actually be more of a social gathering with some mild wheeling and lots of picture taking opportunities. Vehicle requirements are minimal. If your vehicle has four wheel drive and decent ground clearance you should be fine. Where: The Rolls Off-Highway Vehicle Area When: Saturday, June 22, 2013 We will meet as a group at the Kwik Trip gas station on the south east corner of Ellsworth and University at 7:20 pm. From there we will caravan to the Butcher Jones recreation site at Saguaro Lake and pass through the "brown monster" to access the Rolls area. Why: The "super" supermoon only happens once a year. This will be a great opportunity to take pictures of the moon over the lake, wheel along some of the trails and washes, play on a few of the hills, and socialize with friends.

TheKSmith & family will actually be camping here as of Thursday (5/16) as we have to setup the Offroad Passport exhibit at the expo that day. We currently plan to setup the camp site thursday around lunchtime, then go to the expo to setup there, returning to camp later afternoon. CAMPING LOCATION: Next to FR 9117K or J. Approximate coordinates are: N 35* 01.206', W 111* 26.723' Map (at the green arrow): http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=%2B35+01.206,+-111+26.723&sll=35.021351,-111.446385&sspn=0.02186,0.042872&ie=UTF8&ll=35.019734,-111.443768&spn=0.021861,0.042872&t=h&z=15 Coming from Flagstaff/I-17, take Lake Mary Road towards Mormon Lake. Just after passing Upper Lake Mary, there will be a small intersection with Pingrove Campground to the right, take the left on FR 82E. The first right that is a numbered route should be 9117J, take that right. We will camp somewhere along 9117J or K (K is the next little right once on J). If you get to a large opening with a dry pond on your right (green spot on the map below), you went to far, we'll camp in the woods before then. If anyone arrives before us, be sure that you are on the numbered forest road and camp with 300 feet of the road center-line. The coordinates are from a previous trip and may not be exact as it was before the maps were redrawn. If you are on a non-numbered trail or camped too far from the road, you could be fined by the forest service. Cost/Permits: Free - to the best of our knowledge, no permits are required. Attending: TheKSmith & Family (camping & expo) ZMagic97 (expo) lofreqjeff (expo) andrewnei & guests (camping & expo) UnderlyVerbose (expo, swing by camp, help at the expo on Fri) Bradywgn71 (swing by camp, staying in flag) MHead (sat/sun) Hollywood & guests (camp & expo) 91AzXJ (tentative sunday) InARut Please sign up if you'll be camping with us or just let us know to watch for you at the expo! ALSO - I could use people to watch the exhibit occasionally so I can have lunch and bathroom breaks. Remember, a crowd draws a crowd, so just having some of you come hang out once in a while is helpful too!

Hunter Offroad 625 S Smith Tempe, Arizona, 85281 Attending: dzjeepchic Number 7 TheKSmith 7Lbar Desert4x4 C-Fish lofreqjeff schip2009 K7VZ Here's a copy of John's announcement - get all the info here: Howdy all! That favorite time of year is coming ..100 Degree Temps are gone. (Pray that they are) and the holidays are coming. Family, gifts, cool weather to go 4wheeling... but most important... it means the greatest 4x4 bash in a parking lot is back once again. Hard to believe, but its the 14th BBQ, and it goes down on Saturday, Dec 1st, starting at 3 PM and I want it to be big so I making sure to get on the ball early and get the word out. Been a rough few years and I am glad to be standing. Time to celebrate! For a lot of you, you know the drill and what goes down at Hunter's BBQ. For those that are new to the scene, or, of the select group that cant remember from last year, or years before... Also, for those one Facebook, follow along at Hunter Offroad. (Im still trying to figure out to use all that stuff) This originally was started as a way for the group to get together as club, in one place to meet face to face. Get ideas, tell stories, check out and show off jeeps and projects, and most important, hang out and make new friends. Read through for all the info. Here is the short scoop. When: Saturday, Dec. 1st 3:00 PM - till we close it down. (Usually about 7-8) Where: Hunter Offroad 625 S Smith Tempe, Arizona, 85281 Here's the gist. Everyone brings a little bit of food, and there is plenty for everyone. One huge pot luck. Bring a pack of burgers, a pack of hot dogs or soda. Bring a side dish, bean dip or ketchup, etc. Got a BBQ grill? Bring it and be a hero. Grills are always needed. Bring some cash for raffle tickets. I am going to try and spring for long sleeve shirt T-shirts this year and try and get a some vendors there as well. Bring some chairs to sit in, an a table to on if ya got it. Oh, dont forget the camera. Check below for all the info. -----Scrolll Down For The Raffle Info---- 2 Great vendors on board all ready and they will have small booths set up.. Sierra Expeditions 4Wheelers Supply Most important things of the BBQ... Bring some chairs, bring some food or drinks to share, bring a camera. Ok everyone here is the News and Notes for the BBQ, this will get updated as things progress. This year will most likely we will have some good groups raising for charity. I will be "Stuffing the Buggy again this year for the a Toy Drive for the Sheriff's Office For starters, here's the basics and how-to rules for the BBQ, for all of you rookies coming for your first time; or for those of you, cant remember the last one .. This will be the main thread for the BBQ. If there are changes, they will be added here in this post. Watch the "update" date to see if anything has been added. Notes will be added. (Such as more tables or if I need more BBQ grills, because you can never really have enough tables and BBQs) 1) First Rule, And most important. Food. Everyone brings a little. Everyone will have alot. Bring a side dish, bring a few bottles of ketchup, plates, drinks what ever. If you can, post what you are bring here so some folks can get an idea what you are bringing. One thing I ask.... If you buy meat, try and buy matching buns, helps cut down on being too lopsided. Bring a cooler with ice and have a freind bring sodas or water. You get the idea. For those of you thinking, "I should tell him to make a list", (it happens every year), it is IMPOSSIBLE to keep track of what everyone is bringing. I have 100 poeple signed up. I will have 150 show up. I go with the rule, "average in the chaos". All though, for several years, Rox does a darn good job keeping the Chaos together 2) The W's of the BBQ Where: Hunter Offroad Parking lot 625 S Smith Suite 1 Tempe Arizona 85281 When 3:00 PM Saturday, Dec. 1st. It will kick-off at 3 O'clock Parking lot usually fills up pretty early. If you want to get in the parking lot and have a good spot, come early. Parking lot will be open by 12:00 if you are bring a trailer, please park it down the street to save room for the rigs who cant get into the parking lot Why its done: Goes back to the roots of the very first one... Allows everyone a chance to meet other Jeeper's and other 4wheeler's and swap ideas, check out other rides and get ideas, make friends and have a good time. Most fun you will have with your 4x4 in parking lot. There are a lot of new faces this year and should be plenty of new people from other clubs. So feel free to spread the word. 3) RTI Ramp, It will be good times as usual on the Ramp. Show everyone what you got. See if you improved over last year. Or just have fun and flex out for the camera. Lot's of pictures and probaly some tire climbing. But, with the general nonsense of people driving up on wheels, its fun, but its easy to get carried away. A few rules to remember: No Rolling Off The Ramp on purpose..... well, at least give a warning if you are going to show us your skids plates and drive shafts. 4) The Infamous "Screw 'Em Raffle I know last year I had some local business really kick in for the raffle. I am always looking for things to dontate, 4x4 related or not... All the proceeds go help cover some costs of the BBQ then rest goes to a chairty or a good cause we pick as a group. If anyone here has a local business, regardless if its 4x4 related or now, conact me if you would like to promote. If you would like to donate, contact me. This list will get updated soon. The Raffle Overview. 1 Dollar a Ticket. 12 for 10 bucks. *If you wear a Hunter Offroad T-shirt, you also get a free raffle ticket. *If you deck out your ride in Christmans decoartion, you will also get free tickt for that. Also, if you want to bring can food items, I will make sure they get to St Mary's.. 5) Personal Beverages at the BBQ? I have NEVER had a problem with folks having some cold ones in all the years I have been doing this, (over a decade) but I have bring it up. Only thing I ask, remember, it is a family event, so take care and mind your self. It is private property so you can enjoy. If you like to bring some cold ones and talk shop with your buddies, go ahead and play nice and be prepared to share with the host. And my standing rule goes, I may or may not tell you what is my soda... 6) Selling stuff Swap meet ideas. Usually folks will want to bring stuff and try and sell or swap stuff. I have no problem.. Thats what this is all about. Got some old shocks or Jeep parts, bring and put them on display. Old winch you wanna sell? Stick out there. Only rule, dont bring so much stuff, that is takes up room in the parking lot for people to park. If you have something bigger, leave it on the street. I want to save room for folks to setup their chairs, and allow as much room for people to park as possible in the lot. Usually a Jeep in a place will still havesome room in front, behind or besides to display stuff. That's fine. 7) Kitchen Help I need BBQ's and tables for the food... always do. More the better. From the past, 5 normal size grills can cook all we need im the time to feed everyone. Be a hero and bring a grill. We are always looking for volunteers to help. Also, anyone want to run the kitchen area? I have found it does help to have alittle direction. Also if anyone wants to donate to the raffle, Please contact me. In year's past we have had gift certificates for a restaurant other club members bought, to a free therapy massage by a another club member's private business, gift cards, or even the classic re-gift. Email: hunteroffroad@aol.com or call 480-557-7577 Do not to forget to bring Tables and chairs to sit on too for you and for others. Also, I will need BIG tables for Kitchen Area. Contact me if you have some. Will need at least 4 to 5 3x8 tables. That should cover the bulk of it. This post will be the one I update so check it for the news. Best Regards, John "Hunter"
  22. What is overland/expedition style travel? We often use the terms “overland” or “expedition” to describe the style of certain trips, but what exactly does this mean? An “expedition” is commonly said to be an organized journey undertaken by a group of people with a particular purpose, often exploratory in nature. The word “overland” literally means “over, on, or by land” - however, somewhat recently in the US (and for much longer in other parts of the world), it has come informally to refer to “vehicle-dependent overland expeditions”, but that gets a bit wordy! On this site, we use the terms expedition and overland interchangeably to refer to a style of excursion with these common features: Journeys last 3 or more days (typically 3 to 10). Trips are vehicle-based (possibly including hikes and other activities, but the primary mode of travel being by vehicle). Camping is the main lodging (often “dry” or “dispersed”, but may include stays in developed campgrounds or even in hotels/motels). Travel is done with a group of people, and more than one vehicle (typically 3 to 20 people and 2 to 20 vehicles). The purpose of the trip may be solely the enjoyment of the journey. Other times the purpose is to explore and gather information with the intention of leading more organized trips back at a later date. A large portion of the trip is typically off-highway travel (requiring a high-clearance, 4x4, or other capable OHV). Areas we visit are often chosen for their scenic, historic, or geologically interesting features. Less-charted remote regions offer further appeal. Places that combine the above features with unique or challenging off-highway trails are the most sought-after. People may share other journeys on our forums that extend beyond these basic attributes (even exotic world-wide adventures), but they represent the fundamentals upon which most of our “overland/expedition style trips” are based. Note that we also do many day-runs just to go "wheeling', as well as other meet-ups and technical wrenching parties. However, this article is focused on the longer trips. One last point worth mentioning is that due to the difficult and/or lengthy travel required to get from many of our destinations to civilization, you must be self-reliant. Not only are your own physical and mental capabilities tested at times, but also the capabilities of your vehicle and the tools and supplies you choose to bring. Planning and preparation are of key importance as well. Though we always work as a group, and no man would ever be left behind, there are certain real-world expectations. It would not be wise to head 100 miles into the desert if you have a serious medical condition that is not well managed. Likewise, you shouldn’t embark on an off-road journey without some basics tools or with a poorly maintained vehicle.
  23. Anyone going to the Off-Road Expo in Pomona, CA? I've never been but it looks like good times... Tickets & Info: http://www.offroadexpo.com/page/tickets
  24. So, for anyone who didn't read the thread last week, the Overland Expo is going to be in Flagstaff this year. http://www.overlandexpo.com/ It's kind of like a car show or a bike rally but geared specifically toward expedition 4x4 and motorcycles. There will be clinics, vendors, food, thousands of ways to spend your money, and like ducksface said last weekend, an awesome parking lot to check out! I will likely be going all three days since it's just a few minutes drive, but if there's enough interest and time, I would be more than willing to show everyone around town, maybe follow some nearby trails, or go shooting on one of those days. I'm also thinking an ORP barbecue at my house may be in order too I know several folks mentioned only going for one of those days, and since it's a short notice event, I think just playing the schedule by ear is the best approach. Hope to see y'all there!
