Plan your Overland Expo in tandem with the American Adventurist Appalachian Rendezvous

Overland Expo is proud to work closely with American Adventurist on promoting overland training and travel.

Heading to Overland Expo EAST? Plan a week of adventure by combining the American Adventurist Appalachian Rendezvous with Overland Expo—a week of training and a week of exploring, what more could you ask for?

First, head out to the Rendezvous for a weekend of sharing and exploring with like-minded friends at the Uwharrie Off Road Training Center (UORTC) in central North Carolina. This event is scheduled for 25-27 September 2015—the weekend before Overland Expo EAST.

Then, Appalachian Rendezvous attendees may stay on the UORTC property FREE OF CHARGE between the Rendezvous, which concludes Sunday the 27th, and the start of the Overland Expo 2015 EAST in Asheville, NC, on Thursday, October 1, 2015. 

This close alignment of the two events will allow travellers to attend both, first doing stuff, and second learning stuff, while in between the two exploring the many exciting things available to explore in North Carolina. Hopefully this will encourage participants to plan for a trip of a little longer duration and “check” two boxes.
