Started in 2009 with an attendance of just 900 people, the expo has had to change venues in previous years to accommodate the demanding growth. In fact, because of the demand, there will now be two shows per year. The second show will be held in Asheville, NC on October, 3-5 of this year.download_now

This year’s event hosted approximately 8,000 visitors, over the course of three days. You’ll need the three days to fully absorb the happenings of the event. With 160 different classes and workshops to sign up for, you will find there is something for everyone. While commuting between the classes you won’t miss out on the vendors supplying equipment for your next 4WD or ADV motorcycle outing. Not to mention all the fine vehicles that have been driven/shipped to the event. You will definitely see some rare and well kitted out vehicles that have been used to travel all over the world. This year both Land Rover and Chrysler had a plethora of vehicles you could drive around the off road course, including the new Dodge Power Wagon. In the evening, happy hours, a film festival and music will surely entertain. This year Paul May of Equipt threw a celebratory party for the crew of Expedition Overland.

With eye candy (the trucks and bikes) in every direction, on top of all the things to do, and most importantly, the people to meet, the event is often a sensory overload, but in a good way. To me, the event is about the sharing of information, friendships and just having a good time. So mark your calendars for 2015 or if you live on the Eastern side of the US, attend the show in Asheville! We’ll shut up now and get to the stuff you’ve been waiting for.
