This is an on-highway convoy, correct?
Mostly, Yes. There will be some light "off-road" near Bullhead, AZ and there will be some off-grid camping the day before the expo opens, but we will consider the group makup.

Is this a get in and drive down in one shot interstate road train, or are you doing some Offroad Overlanding and one night of camping?
