[caption id="attachment_7694" align="aligncenter" width="737"] Overland Expo West Passes and Information[/caption]

It's official! Overland Bound is going to Flagstaff for the 2015 Overland Expo. In this thread I will let you know what the plan is. I will likely be driving around the country to take in a few sites before arriving in flagstaff. Possible destinations include Utah, New Mexico, Joshua Tree, and locations around Flagstaff. I may designate a spot to gather before the expo starts to meet and greet, and roll-in as a group! More to come!

[checklist]
  • Likely departure May 10th, returning to California by May 19th.

I wish I would be able to go. Unfortunately I'm still over in Kuwait for the next couple of months. I'll be back in the states this summer/fall time frame. Are you going to the Overland East Expo? I was planning on going if the Army allows it.

@Michael OB #0000 I just cleared my schedule for the Overland Expo. If you're interested in some New Mexico pre-game trails let me know and I'll shoot you some contact info.

@administrator Hmm, nothing is showing up in your post...

And, yes I am on the map (southeast, NM) but I was thinking about exploring some trails in the northern part of the state so I could shoot directly west to Flagstaff from there. However, if you're interested in the Carlsbad Caverns area I know a bunch of trails in that vicinity too since it's our Guadalupe Off-Road Club stomping grounds. ( We are on Facebook and YouTube)
