Overland Expo

So, I'm in Flagstaff for some medical work, (getting out of the heat).

I find this up coming event here next weekend, looks expensive.

Anybody been to this before?

If you’re into Expedition/off-road bling it would be pretty cool.. there should be a lot of travelers and vendors there.. some cool adventure bikes too..

I've started noticing the unloaded Beemers starting to congregate, but we always have loaded touring bikes rolling thru town here.
My TW is in storage, and my scrambler (retro adventure bike) has Metzler "Next" tires, good for street, so I'm out of the mud competition.
I expect the farkles to be priced high, with a lot of hand holding as the plastic (credit card) heats up.
I'm curious, the ratio of posers/real riders

Wed nite "meet & greet" for early attendees/volunteers downtown Flag last nite. Featuring two Urals, early 800 GS and a KTM 990. The 4X's were showing off the sleeping modes of their rigs.

Thursday, opening day for camping.
I tried to get to the venue today and traffic was backed up 1 mile, add the 1/2 mile to get to the official entrance.
I was on the frontage rd, Beulah, SB, that runs into 89A up from Sedona, & Airport rd crossing I 17.
With three roads and a freeway sharing a traffic circle, wind with dust, I bailed, no need to add rat race to my retirement.
Wind is supposed to crank this afternoon, three fire trucks code 3 just passed my campground,

I tried to get in on Sat, there were some restrictions that I didn't like.
Mandatory email address for every adult guest, have to buy tickets over the web, very liberal sharing of email addresses for the companies involved to the point of shell, & holding companies, and any other parts of corporations pertaining to this event.
I even drove the truck so I could pack my bicycle, to cut down on time spent walking between venues all day.
It didn't feel right to me, so I bailed.
