Confirm, and I'll drive up then as well.
To get there Wednesday night I'll need to try and get at least halfway on Tuesday and find a place to crash for the night. Time to start planning my route!

I do have a question, if we get there Wednesday afternoon will we be able to camp onsite @Ohio Valley Overland? The ticket says we get premium camping Thursday thru Monday but I'm assuming you have some contacts no?

You have a place "to crash" - Our farm! Yes, we do have a two bedroom farmhouse, and you are welcome to stay.

I’ll be there for sure…thinking of bringing my 20x30 circus tent ….
Now that would be a site to see.
It’s not a big deal to haul it down…I just need a few folks to help set it up…we could host a campground party…I can bring smoke machines, a light show, PA system…the worlds first Overland Disco…all you got to do is say the word…my motorcycle club puts on the hell of a bash in the campground at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days at Mid Ohio in Lexington Ohio every year…come out and see the mayhem…7/22-24/22

Just ordered my Overland Bound Basecamp Flag, going to make sure it's up good and high at Expo East this year so hopefully I'll get to meet more members. Also brining my Mountain Bike so I have some transportation besides my truck, plan to use the RTT this year so not planning to move the truck once I arrive and get setup.

I'm currently contemplating getting tickets for the East event, but now that I see that there are plans for an OB contingent, I might pull the trigger. Are you guys going for the "grassy field" or "forest" camping? I was going to get a forest spot, but if everyone is in the field, I'll go for that; saves a few dollars and gets me closer to other members.

Don't get the forest camping...It's FAR AWAY from EVERYTHING!

Just purchased my tickets! Can't wait to meet everyone!

@Viking1204...Did you find a place to crash on the way up? If not and if you're coming up I-95, we have plenty of space for you to park and set up your RTT. We're in Sumter, SC about 7-8 miles off of I-95, so you wouldn't have to go too far off of the interstate.

Ok folks I've started this thread for OXE22 so that we can come up with some ideas for next year. I love to get feed back from people so please let me know what we can do better next year. first if you were there fill out the survey they sent to you by email. Give them honest feed back about what they did well and what needs improvement. I may do a google form as well to find out what we can do next year too. As far as I could see most everyone who came by my camp and was hanging out had a good time. Tacos and bourbon were flying!....but the venue would not let me rope off an area and the area I had wanted to set up in was used for something else. I wish we could all have camped together but it simply was not in the cards....we will try again next year. I'm thinking of doing day long overland route out of the venue and out into the surrounding area. That would give us something we could do together outside of the camping area and give a since of community. Anyone want to take on that beast of an idea let me know. OK everyone, lets hear some ideas!
Hi,

My wife and I want to go this year. We are new to this whole experience and we want to learn together. Exactly how does it work? I see they sell tickets with you overlanding there, but when I go to click on the link, it doesn't open up. Any useful information would be awesome. We would like to sleep in our ground tent.
