Hi, I am thinking I am going to be going to this is anyone else going to be venturing out? If anyone has gone in the past If so I’m curious is it better to camp in the field or upgrade to a site? Do the sites allow fires or still same no fire rule? I wouldn’t be against a convoy of anyone was from the north east. Let me know I know it’s far out but o well.

@Ohio Valley Overland is organizing a OB group camping area at Expo East, you might message him for details

I want to hit this expo on the way up the east coast in October. Not sure if it will time out right but is a "soft" plan at the moment.

I’m in a similar boat. Coming up from central NC. Do the wooded sites have tent pads or just tree roots? I’d probably hammock camp anyway. But, if you convoy and check in together would your sites be adjacent, or is it assigned at registration time, or is it first come first pick.

From reading what they saying on FAQ the grassy Field camping the only way to camp together is to enter together. If you show up at different times you can wait for your party. But no idea about the upgraded camping

@Ohio Valley Overland is a volunteer for Expo so he has permission to get a group camping area. The last event he had 20-30 rigs and still had lots of space.

Making the drive from Florida. We got the forest camping upgrade but thinking about canceling and doing the OB site instead. Looking for a good place to camp half way to split the drive up. Any ideas?
