I may be on CB 4 as that's what the Overland Expo package said they will be using at the event...


I will check CB 04 also; as you can imagine this channel will be crowed w/all the attendees using as suggested by the Overland Rally organizer.

CB 7 hopefully will be less traffic for us to use. Certainly don't want everyone to know that I have plenty of Pacifico in my fridge (smile).

If I was employed I would have signed up for this event! I hope they do it again next year so I can attend.


Steven, looks to be a good turn-out and Overland Rally is scheduled again for Sept 2011: http://www.overlandr...ategory/events/

Also Steven or any family who wants to go to this event - check my post in the NCLR Members Only thread.

I saw your thread! Awesome deal for someone. Unfortunately, I have some of my truck in bits and pieces trying to get it ready for the Annual Event in a few weeks so I am unable to attend.

Hey guys, was @ the Overall Rally today; saw some of the regulars @ the Expo e.g. Scott Brady aka Expedition West... Registered, hung-out with Leigh for awhile, and then saw Dan coming as I was leaving the Rally...

Just came in today to register, meet/greet... now I am back @ home.

Will be back Sat/Sun.

Mike, I asked and you can bring a second vehicle sine you paid for the family pass.

C yah!

what are you doing up at 4:30 in the morning, Ron?

did you get any takers on the family pass? i texted you yesterday about taking it off your hands, but i'm not sure i could get down there for more than part of day this weekend, and that seems wasteful.

and, yeah, when i was at HH two weeks ago, the flies were horrendous.

Mark, didn't get your text; but call my cell if you want to come to Hollsiter even for a day Sat; would be great to see you and your 110.

4:30 I was getting ready for work today or maybe I was sleep walking. He! He!

Dinner and show. Nice. Really enjoyed the presentation on trips (around the world) by a couple Christian and Persephone; went from San Francisco, Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia... Africa... Europe... Back to San Franciso. Nex presentation was Mogol Rally in Mongolia. Was too tired and didn't finish watching the guys who traveled in Africa w/very lil money - they did it.
