Overland Expo EAST Pics

It was billed “the world’s most unique event for do-it-yourself adventure travel enthusiasts, with hundreds of session-hours of classes for 4-wheel-drive and adventure motorcycling, inspirational programs, the Overland Film Festival, roundtable discussions, demonstrations, food, and a large expo featuring over 150 vendors of adventure travel equipment, camping gear, bikes, vehicles, and services.”

Owned and operated by Jonathan and Roseann Hanson, this annual Arizona event, now in its sixth year, expanded East for 2014 and, at least from my perspective, seems to have been a first year success.

We enjoyed the experience, and as I know a number of articles will cover it over the next few days, I’ll merely post a few photos and say that our Alaskan camper received a fair amount of attention and interest.

Some  links later as they develop…meanwhile, pictures below.
