Good afternoon folks! I wanted to reach out and introduce myself. I am a new OB member and a founder of Texas Avid Outdoors and the TAO Fall Outdoor Expo. I am here to answer any questions that you may have about our event and of course to invite you all to be part of what we are growing here. As Texas's first dedicated overland event, we are trying hard to grow something sustainable in the hopes that we can do this for years to come. As is clear here in this thread, there is a great and growing community of overland enthusiests here in Texas and some amazing Texas based vendors who cater to this community. My goal is to get all of you together with out having to drive to other parts of the country to make it happen. I really look forward to getting to hopefully meet all of you and get to know you. I also will try my best to get to the September meet up. Saturday's are sometimes as little tough as I'm in the catering business and weekends are busy! Until then, please ask any questions that you may have! A big thanks to ZuLander for letting you all know about the event!
Welcome! I know their is a lot of interests in the TAO/TO event. This event probably deserves its own thread. You could start it under the SouthWest region, and name it Texas Avid Outdoors. I have some lagistical questions, I will post, once the thread is created. I'm looking forward to attending. Again, great to see you on OB Forum. You are very welcome here.

Looking forward to seeing everyone this Saturday. Who thinks they will be able to make it out?

I'm hoping we get some good photos this meeting. I would like to get a cool photo, to use for the rally point invite.

We have plans to be camping this weekend, so I don't think we'll make it. The next one for sure!

Dang...New member here and it looks like I just missed a meeting. I'm in New Braunfels so just a hop, skip, and a jump away from Cabelas. Next month for sure! Thanks - Josh

So how about a second chance since so many people missed this one...
We're having a Texas Overland meetup Saturday Sept 23 at The Junction Eatery & Drinkery, starting at noon.
It's at the intersection of RR12& FM32 just outside of Wimberley.
It's an outdoor venue with food trailers and a bar. Totally kid and dog friendly.
Also, my daughter and I will be heading to camp at Oxford Ranch afterwards, and anyone is welcome to join. Hope to see y'all there!

That sounds fantastic! I regret that I will not be able to attend. I'm heading out on the 20th for Yosemite NP. After Yosemite, I'm heading to OB OTG 2017. We are dropping by the Grand Canyon on my way home, so will be out of TX until October 6th.

Hey gang. Just a reminder of the Texas Fall Outdoor Expo this weekend, Oct 13-15 at Oxford Ranch outside of Llano.
The event is free, and camping is $8/night. Classes, Vendors and contests. Not to mention lots of swag given away!
With the addition of OutdoorX4, Overland Journal, and Expedition Portal, this event is garnering A LOT of attention.
Hope to see y'all there!
