Congats to Tom for a great show, I have to say the highlights for us were the talks, really enjoyed Chris Scotts and of course Peter & Eileen Critchon are always worth there weight in gold

I also like the bushcraft stuff, a real change

The display vehicle area was also good - got to nose round a few vehicles and talk to owners, had lots of visitors at ours and managed to gather 5 Iveco Daily 4x4's in one place, thats got to be a record

I'll post up more photos soon

Very good show, best one this year by far.
Good that it was not full of the big wheeled mob that go to the main show.
Bush craft demo was great, kids love it. (so did I)
Hope for more next year.

Would have love to have got there this year, but alas were were and are still in Germany have our 4 x 4 built.

Great to see a gathering of like minded people, somewhere to camp too.

We have been to Allrad at Bad Kissingen twice and its fantastic to see all the vehicles at the camp ground.

We have also been to Willys treffen, very friendly and lots to see and a much better location this year at Bad Kreusenach, Germany.

We should be returning with the truck in November, sometime.

We have done the Adventure travel show up in London a couple of times, I thought this years one wasnt as good as last years, but maybe because the big 4 x 4 trucks arent represented.

The guy thats building our water tanks in Germany, frank from FT design Tanks had a stand at the overland show, havent spoke to him since he got back to Germany, but will do.

If anyone wants tanks built although in Germany the prices and designs are good.

Hi neil

Think we met briefly at Willys Treffen this year

Look forward to seeing photos of your truck

It was a unique event in the UK, hopefully the Hubb event next year can capture some of that spirit and I think that Tom is planning to run again next year
