The irony of Overland Expo

This is my second time at OXW.

The first was back in 2016, when Chazz and I were actively marketing Adventurist Life magazine. We had a little booth off the back of his Land Rover Discovery on the vendor midway.

It was a lot of fun—even if I DID get TRASHED Saturday night and missed my chance to interview Earth Cruiser owners about their incredible, Mitsubishi Fuso overlanding machines Sunday morning.

Overall, though, I really didn’t know many people. At least, not beyond their names, anyway.

Today, things are a little bit different. I’m walking around OXW on a mission to meet some new people and get to know the ones I already know a bit better while we can hang out in person.

The irony of Overland Expo is that I feel like I’m going to get more out of the one day I’m there this year representing Gearbox Magazine than I did two-plus days in 2016 representing Adventurist Life.
