Blowverland Expo 2016
Weather has been the hot topic when ever people start to discuss Overland Expos. It snowed at last year’s Overland Expo West, receiving the nickname “Snoverland Expo,” while Overland Expo East was a crazy wet, muddy and windy affair, as it was battered with a hurricane. The weather was pretty mild at the West event this year, but high winds did keep everyone on their toes all weekend, and some RTT campers a little sleep deprived. I’d like to christen Overland Expo 2016 “Blowverland Expo.” The way I see it, if you give it a funny nickname, the weather gods might be kind, and provide slightly more favorable conditions for the next event.
With all that said, I love crazy weather! It is one of the many aspects of this amazing gathering of the overland tribe that makes it so memorable. Below are links to the stories I’ve posted about Overland Expo 2016, and a photo essay that will give you a little more in-depth view of what the event itself was all about.
