When & Where?

Where’s Overland Expo West? Head here to get directions, tickets, camping, and lodging information for the event. We’ll be on-location Thursday afternoon through Sunday evening.

  • Look for Chazz’s Disco and our yellow-and-black automotive mascot, Sir Clax-a-Lot the Adventurist Life Subaru Forester, at the booth Oasis A. We’ll be wedged right between American Adventurist and Mojoe Outfitters. (You’ll probably be able to follow your nose, what with the Mojoe Griddles going all weekend.)
  • Brian will be out in general camping with the American Adventurist family. Here’s a link to the planning thread. Brian drives a white Mitsubishi (Nissan?) Montero with the Adventurist Life logo on the sides.

You’ll find us both in the Adventurist Life booth on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from noon to 2pm, so stop by and say hello. We’ll also be out wandering about, meeting people, taking pictures, and working on upcoming issues—you know, journalism-type stuff—but there will be someone in the booth all weekend to help you out or track us down.

Update: Brian has to attend a funeral in the Los Angeles area Friday and won’t be at Expo until around midnight. See you Saturday.

That’s all for now. We’ll keep this page updated as things develop. We look forward to meeting you all in Flagstaff!

Update #1: Friday the 13th

Come join us in the Someday I’ll Learn booth #62 on Saturday evening at 5pm for the 10-20 Outfitters Overland Expo West Meet-Up. We’ll be giving away an overlander-edition Yeti Built Adventure Pack: including a subscription to Adventurist Life and goodies from Yeti Built, American Adventurist, 10-20 Outfitters, Off the Grid Surplus, and a few others. More details to come…

Update #2: Monday the 16th

Yeti Adventure Pack

Goose Gear has joined us with a few goodies for the overlander-edition Yeti Built Adventure Pack. Swing on by to say “hi,” check out the magazine, and drop your name in the pool at American Adventurist’s Oasis Booth. We’ll pick one lucky winner during the 10-20 Outfitters Overland Expo West Meet-Up on Saturday evening at 5pm!

Update #3: Thursday, Travelday

Expo West 2016 00021

We’re on the road! If you see Brian headed the wrong way on the interstate he’s not lost, a last-minute emergency trip cropped up. He’s still headed to the show though, and will be arriving late Friday night at the American Adventurist camp.

Chazz is en route to the Expo, and should arrive around 3pm. We’ll be in Oasis Booth C—drop on by for a visit and check out the magazine, pick up a subscription at a discounted rate, and put your name in the pool for the overlander-edition Yeti Built Adventure Pack giveaway. We’ll see you there!

American Adventurist Life empowers our viewers to go confidently in the direction of their dreams.

Inspiring imagery, and editorial which digs deep into the realities of living the adventurist life.
