Yesterday at the Overland Expo at the Biltmore Estate, we met a dog named O’Riley, an adventure-mobile named The Green Rover and a modern day earth-roaming expedition named TeriAnne Wakeman. She has a wealth of information that can be found on her website and in her newly published book titled The Essential Guide to Overland Travel in the United States and Canada. If you’re in town you can pick up a copy at the expo and she’ll even sign it for you. Hurry though, because today’s the last day it’s in town. Otherwise, you can order her book online by visiting http://www.expeditionlandrover.info I love it for not only the practical tips regarding gear selection but for the color photographs she’s included that are her own.
Overland Expo in Asheville
Tomorrow, Saturday, October 8th, we’ll be at the Overland Expo at the Biltmore Estate (1 Lodge Street, Asheville, North Carolina 28803).
Hours: Friday October 7, 9-5 // Saturday October 8, 8-5 // Sunday October 9, 8-3
There are 125+ Exhibitors, 140 classes and programs and 120 Instructors and Presenters from around the world on site.
We’re particularly excited about the evening films that will be showing and plan to be at the theater Saturday night at 8pm to watch the debut of Operation Moto Dog: The Film about Mallory Paige and her pooch Baylor.
Well wait, what IS overlanding? It’s a self-reliant method of travel to remote destinations where the journey is the principal goal. It’s about exploring, not conquering. This event is a trade, educational and social event for the rapidly growing overlanding market and we’re super excited to be attending.
