Overland Expo 2013 May 17-19 Flagstaff, AZ

Anyone going to this? I had an awesome time last year, and saw some amazing equipment.

A great place to go and meet people who've been all over the world.

Hope to see some Stroms!

Great group of people who run that event. Wish I could attend, but it always falls around my wedding anniversary.

I'll be there. Right now my plans are to fly in to Phoenix & rent a car. I'm considering riding in but I really don't have the time to do the 1200 miles each way.

Did you do the "experience passes" or the "day passes" last year?

I'll have to stay in touch with you! I will be up your way on the bike in September!

I just did the day passes. I feel strongly enough about my riding skills, that I didn't think they'd be necessary. Most everything you can watch anyway, even if you haven't paid.

Are you camping out or staying in a hotel in Flagstaff?

We'll be there. I convinced the wife and kids to come, so we will be in a silver Toyota Sienna with a basket on top pulling a camp-kitchen trailer. I didn't finish the dang XT225 sidecar, so we'll have bikes for get-around rides.

I read that there might be a family camping area, and if so we'll be there. We get in maybe 7-8ish Friday night, but Strommers should plan to come over for dinner Saturday. I emailed Jdubyap my cel #, and anyone else who wants it should PM me. We can talk Strom.

I'll bring the beverages, what's your drink of choice?

Been going back & forth but I haven't decided yet. I am bringing camping gear with me. If there are camping sites still available, I'll camp. If not, I'll get a room somewhere. Either way I also need to find a source for my meals.

What are your plans?

I'm sure there will be a place to pitch the tent, no problem. I think I am probably going to sleep in my truck. I want to see what the camping areas are like this year, there's a chance I may pitch the tent as well.

I am going. Leaving Mon morning from Santa Cruz area. Cruzing over the Sierras and thru Nevada, Zion, and dropping down to Flagstaff from the north via Page. Should be there sometime Thursday.
I am doing the day pass thing and camping with Land Rover friends under some trees somewhere in an RV area(?). If you wander around and see a strom say hi!
Looking forward to the eye candy!

PS, surprised to not see more strommers going.
