LOCATION
The WEST show is held in beautiful Flagstaff, Arizona, gateway to the Grand Canyon and Four Corners region. Nestled in cool ponderosa pine forest, the venue includes plenty of camping, food vendors, and miles of onsite and nearby trails for walking and riding. Hotels, restaurants, and shopping are just moments away in downtown Flagstaff, and the international airport is just across the interstate.

For more information please see our website: http://www.overlandexpo.com/west

AZXC Info:
We will be camping outside the Expo like last time so if anybody wants to camp as a club lets us know so we can get a head/rig count.

Location/Time: TBD since its first come first serve to reserve a spot so once someone is there to save a spot we will post coordinates.

This is where we camped last year. It's just minutes away from the expo on fr532. If you brought a bike you could ridex it there quicker than finding parking. Parking gets crazy at the expo.

Probably having a Potluck at camp food. Just to bring something to share. Firewood can be acquired but onsite but easier to buy.
Fire Restriction NO fire due to current dry conditions

You bought an fj? We haven't decided on the camp spot yet but depending on who gets there and how many people are coming we will try and narrow an area.

Outside camp spot can not be decided until someone is there to reserve a spot so stay posted for coordinates.

Im still waiting to here if im an official expo contest finalist but if I camp inside we can make a little get together inside with my camp also. But for now we can reserve a big area for AZXC outside.

Unless something comes up, I think I'll be able to come down from Utah for this.

I'm considering driving down Thursday. If anyone's interested in camping that night, lemme know!

I'd love to but I don't think I will be able to get off work until Friday. I'm hoping I can work longer days that week and be off earlier.

I am going to make I think Saturday.  Just doing a day trip.  May spend the night but probably won't have time to prep for camping.

My plan is to arrive Friday afternoon not doing the expo till Saturday though.

Official coordinates to be posted by first person.
Last years spot was in a open field so lets try and get a spot with more coverage. Due to Fire Restrictions there will be no fires aloud due to dry conditions. As for meals looks like stove top only.

Can we get an update on everyone going so we can judge how big of an area we need to stake claim to. Also, I posted the fire restriction notice, it's worse now with the fires going in Apache Sitgreaves area.

We're looking into getting a portable table top propane fire that meets the restrictions. Many of us will have camp stoves as well. Consider bringing extra propane if you can.

Can someone post the coordinates/rough location of the spot you guys used last year?

If you wanna come by the campsite Friday morning, I'd be happy to go explore with you that day. I was thinking about driving around north of the peaks, but I'm down for anything.

Yep, 1:30pm on Saturday. Just wanted to meet up with you guys and say hi. Maybe everyone was just at the expo??? And I did go to the updated coordinates... I saw a few xterras parked along the back road behind the paid parking/camping area though.
