We had an awesome weekend at the Northeast Overland Rallies & Workshop in Vermont. Main Line Overland was an event sponsor, and we enjoyed meeting a number of like minded overlanders who are as passionate about vehicle based exploration as we are. We hope to see many of you soon in some upcoming trail runs!
Over this past weekend, Peter and some friends headed down to the New River Gorge in West Virginia for Waynestock 2013, and annual gathering of white water rafters and like minded individuals. There he put the rooftop tents to work.
The boys at Main Line Overland will be competing in an exciting upcoming event called the Vermont Overland Trophy, August 7-12.

Every self-respecting overlander knows the holy grail of grueling overland expeditions, the Camel Trophy. Vermont Overland Trophy [...]

We’re driving the Willys to Vermont! In the Overland spirit of “it’s the journey not the destination” Pete decided that driving up a bunch of highways in a newer Toyota was not adventurous enough, so he will be driving our newly acquired 1947 Willys CJ2a up to the Vermont Overland Rally this year. The JK [...]
We are in and out of internet access areas, but here are a few photos of the trip so far. We have been taking video as well, which we upload at a later time. Peter and his group left a few days before us, and they went as far west as Zion National Park. They [...]
I figured I would start-up the trip log as Main Line Overland’s East to West adventure is partially underway. Due to shop coverage issues and other’s work schedules we decided to head out in two waves.
