Overland Expo 2012 Part 1
For those of you who may have missed it, this year’s Overland Expo was a huge success. Gathering at the Mormon Lake Lodge facilities south of Flagstaff, Arizona, some 5,000 people attended the three day event to take classes on the tips and techniques of Overland Travel, watch travel movies, and stroll through over 100 companies displaying their specialized products, from roof top tents to cook sets to monster 4X4 expedition campers. Looking out at the meadow behind the motorcycle and off-road training courses it looked like a high tech refugee camp. Pioneers in the trend of overland travel, The Turtle Expedition was given an official send-off for our upcoming Trans-Eurasian Odyssey.
