    I haven't made it to the Overland Expo yet, the dates always conflicted with other things but 2012 dates are out now and it is now in May at a new venue - Flagstaff, AZ. :clap

    I have no connection with them other than thinking what they do is pretty cool for a reasonable amount of money.:thumb For some like me that have to plan as far in advance I thought it would be worth posting. :deal

    Cant recommend it enough. Great people great toys and great stories. Second year for my wife and I. Were in our truck for OX. We bring the dogs and glamping with an Alaskan camper. RawHyde, BMW and all sorts of bike stuff. But primarily its for the people. Day passes are cheap. Discounts through Facebook too. If you're in the area you shouldn't miss it.:drif

    Really hoping I can make it this year. If im lucky Ill be working in Riverside, which puts Flagstaff within the realm of reality. Amato was always just too far to leave Friday night and be home Sunday night and be able to enjoy it.
