thanks for the heads up! I guess i'll start figuring things out. Will there be enough tickets for everyone that wants to go? I remember trying to get tickets before and was unable to
Typically no. Tickets go quick. As in, in seconds. If they go on sale at 2pm, be at a computer and ready to go at 1:45pm.

How many tickets will be available this year? :)

My understanding is the vast majority of tickets are already sold to people who signed up for last year when the event was cancelled.

That's understandable. Especially if the people requested the ticket purchases be held in abeyance for the next event.

I think it will be good business for vendors/sponsors if some newish owners get to meet them and other owners to see what products for a 100 series are actually like at an event like this.
I've only briefly met one other owner in my area. I stopped counting after $8k in mod purchases during the first (last) year.

I'm holding off on a roof rack purchase until I see a few in real life.

There are always vendors at that event and plenty of products to see.

It’s nice to get your hand son stuff and see folks using it real time. It’s why i will never ever buy a fold over RTT... it’s also how I know rhino rack is junk (go grab the front corner of a rhino rack and wiggle it... then go grab the front corner of a Gamiviti rack....Tim wins)

Exactly. I've got a few (sight unseen) regret purchases over quality issues that I will need to reverse this year. I might have avoided them if I had seen them in person beforehand.

I agree with the fold over RTT comment. I watched a few people the couple days I was there and it looked like a major headache dealing with that type of tent. No way I'd want to mess with that.

Have been gawking over some past HIH trip reports and videos over the past year - the event and landscape looks amazing.

Hope I'm able to secure a ticket for this year!

I could see it if you were leaving your vehicle at camp while hiking/biking/trailered something else, but tearing it down every morning because you're gonna drive what it's mounted on looks awful. The clamshell/wedge ones don't look half bad for that though.

I'm eyeing a little military trailer build to get around that annoyance.
