    Too far north. Too far east.
    I thought about it. But I could only do one day and it's not worth driving all the way out for that. I have a big ass bike ride on the 20th.

    Thought I replied to this. Oh well. I am planning on camping there at the expo in my truck. That is tentative. I may also get a hotel room - since I get so many for free.

    I have decided to get a room in town and return with Juan C on Saturday.

    I'm going for sure. Will be driving from Albuquerque if anyone might need a lift. My parents live in Flagstaff now too, so thats a bonus.

    Sackwear will be there. We got a 20x30 booth and will be showcasing a new build. An 80 series camper conversion made by Maltec.org
    This rig is going to be sick.

    I arrived into Flagstaff yesterday (Thursday). Got the truck parked at Walt's booth (2PA). This is his first event where he has a booth. Appears to be high interest. Looks like it is going to be a great event. Word on the street - biggest ever!

    I tried downloading the app this morning - but unable to log on. So resorted to old school - PC research. This will be my 2nd time attending. This time, I want to spend some time learning some of the tips and tricks. Here are some of the options I have selected for today.

    What a great Expo this year. I heard there were 12K people in attendance. The guys did a much better job of organizing and managing the event. Here are some pix.
