    Is any inmates going to the Expo? Suppose to be really good this year, and for the non haters Charley Boorman is going to be there as well as many others. If anyone is going sure would be great to meet up and have a beer or two.

    I'll be coming out with a bunch of guys from Vegas, hope to run into a few of you guys. Rawhyde is a great course and Jim will be there as well as Shawn I do believe who is a fellow inmate.

    Just slap a big ass ADV sticker on your forehead and you will surely be recognized! Been chatting with Charley and he is 90 percent sure that he is going to make the Expo. He has been over in Thailand for the last few months shooting but hopes to stop at the EXPO on his way home. I will keep you advised when things are definite. Swing by the booth when you get up in Flag. Would be great to meet you guys!

    As far as incoming celebrities are concerned I talked w/ Roseann Hanson a few weeks ago and at that time she confirmed we can expect meet & greet Charlie Borman, Tiffany Coates & the 2ride the world team, Simon & Lisa Thomas plus others of Adventure Rider & Horizons Unlimited fame.But,hell, I consider Al Jesse & Jim Hyde as celebrities so what do I know


    You can be identified as an FF ADV Rider buy purchasing ADV stickers, ADV shirts & hats from the ADV vendors section & there buy support not only this website but ADV riders that sell these products.

    Plenty of time to get your " Known Associate" items on order and delivered to you before the Event----See Ya there!!!

    Karla and I are thinking of going to this and dry camping with the big rig. Don't get how the classes work so I am thinking we will just do the day passes and maybe the classes in '14. Still looking at options.
