Packing up the 4x4 and traveling the world sounds like a big project, but people do it every day. And if you think you want to, stop by the next Overland Expo first. The Overland Expo is a three-day event that brings together manufacturers of all types of camping, 4x4, and travel equipment, as well as veteran world travelers and newbies alike. There are classes and seminars on everything from "how I rode my motorcycle around the world on a budget" to "how to get my Land Rover unstuck from a mud bog in the Amazon."
This year's event was held in southern Arizona. Next year's get-together is scheduled for April 1-3, 2011, again in Amado, Arizona. For more info check out www.ovexpo.com or call 520.591.1410.
