We had the honor of attending Overland Expo PNW with the TRUKD team and had a wonderful time meeting many new people and running into some old friends. Thanks to Ben of TRUKD bedracks for offering us this opportunity! It was great to get to know the story and mission of TRUKD and to get to know Ben over the weekend as we sweltered in the heat, downed icy Slush Puppies and showed off our TRUKD bedracks and our trucks to attendees and vendors alike.
Overland Expo is for all things outdoors related to vehicle-assisted adventure travel. You can see products ranging from fully built vans, storage solutions, camp kitchens, water filtration, outdoor clothing, and all the vehicle outfitting gear that you can think of. If you love the outdoors, and going the road less traveled, this expo is what you are looking for. Our favorite find of the weekend was the Skinny Guy Camper on the Xventure trailer, the mashup we didn’t know we needed but wow, it makes so much sense! Good job guys & gals!
Gear and outfitting is great but the people you meet at Overland Expo is the best part. Making connections, hatching plans for collabs and making lifelong friends are just a few of the benefits of attending an expo. There is nothing like a face-to-face conversation to get the excitement going and the laughter flowing. We were especially stoked to meet some folks we followed on social media and find common interests with many of the attendees and vendors.
You can catch the upcoming Overland Expo Mountain West and Overland Expo East to experience one for yourself.
