The weather was a challenge at this year’s Overland Expo (overlandexpo.com), where we camped in rain, snow and lots of mud for the annual gathering of adventure travelers from May 15-17. In spite of the weather, we enjoyed catching up with friends and all of the sights and sounds. Chris and Laura Moxley from Norman joined us for the expo and we had a great time camping with them. After the event, the four of us continued north for more adventures. Details in the next installment!

The puddle in front of Chris and Laura’s tent (along with the snow on its sides) is a good representation of the weather we experienced at the expo.

One thought on ““Snoverland” Expo 2015

  1. I have heard that it is a desirable attribute to smile in the face of adversity. As I peruse these photos from “Snoverland Expo,” those smiles seem most prevalent. Was it the friends coming together after a year’s absence, or the adversity itself that sparked the smiles? Perhaps it was facing the harsh weather together that filled our souls with joy…
