Title: Overland Expo 2010 - April 16-18
Post by: AZ-Ted on February 25, 2010, 11:30:15 PM
The Overland Expo 2010 is in Amado, Arizona this year.  The event will run from April 16-18.  If you have ever been interested in turning your truck into an Expedition vehicle, this is THE place to be.

Here is the Overland Expo webite:  http://www.ovexpo.com (http://www.ovexpo.com)

Where the heck is Amado?  It is on the I-19 south of Tucson in Santa Cruz County.

What do you guys think about the Overland Experience Package and the classes and seminars???

I'm not to sure about "Overland Driving- Women" I mean, why do they have separate classes for women on driving, recovery and spotting??? Unless it has anything to do with Kotex, high heals and painted nails, then I have no idea. Am I missing something?

Seminars that I would be interested in are Map and Compass, Overland Photography, and Medical Kits. I'd really be interested in everything. I'm always up to learn something!

So, does anyone know anything about these classes and what you get for $250 bucks?

Yeah, I'm not going to spend the money on the actual training stuff.  I'll do like i did last year:  hang out for awhile, and then go wheeling.  Does anyone know of a fun wheeling spot there or in the Tucson area?

Being new to the community, I think this would be awesome place to network! I dont think this is far from Tucson.

Looks very cool. I'm gonna check my calendar and see if I can make this. It would be awesome.

Ted, that should be fairly close to the Bull Springs road trail which is pretty cool.

Hey guys, I was going to post up a 'meet and greet' across all the nissan forums ie: thenewx, club xterra, expedition portal, Nissan offroad & ONAZ.  Just an informal post perhaps meeting before the event for breakfast and sometime in the afternoon to gather those who wanted to follow up with a run as you've suggested.  I don't know the area but it was suggested a little past the turnoff in Tubac or even just meet in the parking lot a little early.  Let me know what you think, I've been struggling with how to plan without any idea of the numbers involved.

Harry, Let me know if you need any help. I will definitely be at the Expo and would like to do a run after. I brought it up on NOR to see if anyone wanted to go to the Expo then hits some trails and then camp out around Tucson. So far no response?

Thanks Joe.  Dezurtrat's trail looks cool, keep it scenic and not to tough.

I don't want to mention it too many times seems whenever I want to make an event something pops up.

That trail looks good. Do you want to camp out Saturday night?

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to bow out on this one. I'm overextending myself right now.

Is anyone other than Harry and myself plan on going to the Expo, wheeling or camping?

It looks like there are 3-4 of us that are going down on Saturday. Does everyone want to meet up early Saturday morning and drive down together?

There are some of us meeting up and driving down to the expo tomorrow. If anyone is interested in going we will be meeting in the parking lot of Wildhorse Pass Casino just south of the 202 on I-10 at 9am. Wildhorse Pass caino is across the street from Firebird Raceway.

Lets hope I did this right:

Hey Dezurtrat nice meeting you, stay in touch I really wanted to meet some X-men down south.  Wally and I met another guy with an 09, hopefully he is using our card to get in touch.  There were less owner vehicles but the parking lot was 'amazing', a lot of money in a couple of acres :).  Overall a nice venue with a lot of facilities, I guess the classes were off site except for the BMW motorcycle class.  The event reminded me of an international event more geared to vendor reps similar to SEMA but the display vehicles were amazing, I would have to sell the house to afford what I liked.  The most interesting stuff seemed to be from So. Africa and Australia, I guess more similar to our wheeling than Europe, at least the South West.  Hopefully after seeing how big the event is some vendors for retail (plus show discount) will make it a one stop shop.  Thanks to Joe for getting us together and the drive down was fun you never see so many modded X's unless we are caravaning, between Joe (08whitex), John (Fangars), Wally (Onix) and myself we represented the X.

Yea, it was great to meet you guys. I'll definitely keep in contact and make it up for a AZXC meeting.

Allot of cool stuff at the Expo. I need allot more cash to buy the things I want :)
