Hello all, I am going to OE West near Flagstaff, AZ in 2020. I am a solo Overlander and will be departing from the Sacramento Area.

I am going to use this thread to plan my route, and maybe coordinate with anyone else going from NorCal.

If a group forms then I will throw up a Rally Point with the details.

Thanks,
Mike

Interested - I’d be coming from the bay, could meet you near Sac or on the way. Keep us updated and hopefully we can work it out. Best - Boz

When is the event? Were you thinking of going straight there in a day or multiple day trip with stops along the way?

Expo West is May 15-17. You can arrive on Thursday, 16 May, if you are camping, and stay till Monday morning 18 May.

My camping tickets for the full weekend have already been purchased.

I am thinking of camping one night on the way and one night on the return.

Will try to put up a draft itinerary asap. But the final plan will be based on who all wants to go or can go as a group.

Hoping to hit Death Valley on the way to Expo. And then the Mojave National Preserve on the way home.

Thanks Mike, sounds like a good plan. Will consider it.

I saw something on Facebook about volunteering at Expo and getting free entry
I think I saw something like that about Expo East. Contact Kent to get official word. So far I have not seen anything for Expo West.
