Miss this group already! Maybe I’ll be in town for one of the meet ups.

Saw some talks of awnings and I just picked this contraption up. Think it’s going to work great for me as I do most cooking etc on the tail gate. Rotates around, No modification required either! It’s 15’ x 9’ so plenty of shade. On par with some of the fancier awnings as far as pricing.

OK, I'll bite - what is that really cool looking awning and where can it be obtained?

Link is here. And its a Parasol not awning lol! It lists for $445 but with few internet searches for coupon codes for it for $350. Pricey? Yes. Possibly a inebriated IG post purchase? Also yes. Will it work for me better than an awning? Another yes. Does it come in the coveted "sand" color for overlanders" Yes
Humbra Hitch with Parasol

Random question- does anyone have 2 OneWheels I can borrow for the Overland Expo Rally in Flagstaff? Sept 22-27th?

My wife and I are looking for a little mobility while there for our PullKitchen booth. :)

Good morning, have the upcoming trip sign-ups / Rally Points been posted for these upcoming events? Like others, I don't wish to miss the opportunity to sign-up and schedule vacation time accordingly in advance. Thanks for all you do to make this happen especially around your work schedule.

I post the rally points about 1 month out so they don’t fill up too early. I usually try to get most people there that want to go

Hi Everyone, we have a meet up this Sunday. This will be a good one as we will be discussing these photos attached to this post. Everyone is ok and the photos and stories shared this Sunday are with permission so we all can learn.

OVERLAND BOUND EAST BAY MEETUP THIS SUNDAY 9-12-21

We are meeting this Sunday 1-3pm at Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park, at the end of the parking lot under the giant oak.

Labor Day weekend there was a roll over accident that happened on the edge of Death Valley and we thought it would be a good event to dissect and discuss what went wrong, what went well, and further levels of prepareness and organization. What we are doing requires an appropriate depgree of respect and appreciation that things can go badly quickly and working out ahead of time what needs to be done in such an event will be helpful for anyone who off roads.

We will also be discussing Overland Expo West and those who might be going. Overland Expo West in Flagstaff AZ is Sept 24-26th.
