Overland Expo 2015

Overland Expo 2015

An adventure destination In itself

Over the course of three days, 8,000 people from around the world converge on the tiny town of Mormon Lake, Arizona (20 miles south of Flagstaff, in the Coconino National Forest). While some of the vehicles could have pulled ۬double-duty in the new Mad Max movie, the drivers are not so much about wild hair or weaponry as they are about Cordura, Canvas, and sharing a mutual love for overland travel.

If you are interested in adventure motorcycles, tents, camping gear, and expedition vehicles ranging from home-built to exotic custom offerings, Overland Expo is a bucket list adventure destination in its own right.

We've been wanting to experience it firsthand for the past several years, and last year we finally made the pilgrimage. The event justified the hype.

No other expo offers the scope of classes taught by the world's leading experts, alongside all the camping, vehicles, equipment, and services enthusiasts need to get outfitted and prepared to head afield.

James Baroud, maker of fine rooftop tents, is on display with all of their models — taking a nap break inside is encouraged.

You can buy a weekend pass, or a day pass at the gate, but the best way to see the event is to register for the Overland Experience, which is their version of an all-access pass, allowing attendees to take advantage of the 170+ educational classes and skill-building seminars.


For Easterners who consider Arizona Beyond Thunderdome, don't despair as now there is an Eastern version — making it easy to attend no matter where you live.

Overland Expo EAST — October 2-4, 2015 €¨Asheville, North Carolina
