Anybody else planning going to the October one. Thought I might go as looks like there are a few people bringing bigger trucks that they are self building, might get some ideas.

Cheers Toby

We will be there - Mr Tom has kindly given free passes for larger vehicles if you are willing to park in the display area and talk to folks etc.

And its only down the road - we deserve a shorter drive after willys treffen

I've booked a stand there - it's our first show so should be interesting!

If any of you are passing by do drop in to say hello, it would be good to put some faces to names.

It’s all systems go for ADVENTURE OVERLAND this coming weekend – www.adventureoverland.com

Trades stands are completely full up (have been for nearly a month), loads of display vehicles, there’s a full programme of seminars/talks/lectures with some top people giving up their time, the bushcraft demo area has been set up, there’s even a floodlit 2-hr enduro kart race scheduled for the Saturday night – looking good!

Just remember to offer up a prayer to the rain gods to stay away for a change!

Camping ‘pay on the day’ still available although filling fast, plus of course day admission 10:00 – 17:00 Sat, 10:00 – 16:00 Sun. £10 adults, children under 16 yrs free.

Me, I’m off to site to start setting up, so see you all this coming weekend … it’s going to be a good ’un!

Glad you enjoyed it Harry, we aim to please! As it happens I liked it myself. Those expedition trucks are awesome, so to get together so many in one place at one time was amazing.

It was also good to put a load of faces to names - Rich and Julian being just two. All in all a great weekend (although I say so myself), thanks to all who supported it.

It was a great weekend. A bit wet and cold camping on Friday night but superb weather on Saturday and Sunday. Loads of trade stands and excellent talks. Good to see some very innovative alternatives to 2 wheels and small 3 and 4 wheel vehicles even if I've not been won over by them.
