    Default MAOF - Mid-Atlantic Overland Festival 2016 - Official Thread

    The MAOF is August 11-14th this year, on the same wonderful property, near State College in PA.

    It's less than a 4 hour drive from New York City, or the Canadian border.
    Three hours from Philly or Washington DC, and just over two to Pittsburgh.
    Last year we had attendees from CA, AZ, FL, BC, VT, and everywhere in between.


    The MAOF Adventure Film Fest is back again this year, with a set of MaxTrax as first prize!

    And Four Wheel Campers are once again holding their East Coast Owners Rally at the event!

    Note - The Touratech Adventure Rally has been shifted to a different weekend, so we won't have the issues of heavy moto traffic on the entrance lane.

    We are bringing a lot additional activities to the event, so there will be a lot more to do each day, more vendors, more classes, more prizes, more food, but just as much fun!

    Feel free to post questions and suggestions, we are looking for lots of input.

    It's a family-friendly weekend, and everyone from absolute camping/driving/overlanding beginners, to people who have driven around the world a few times, will have a fun time.

    We are expanding the dedicated off-road training and obstacle course on the field, and there will be a technical (easy to expert) trail through the property. There will be instructors on hand from Overland Experts to make you a better driver or spotter, regardless of your current skill level.

    Add that to classes on cooking, packing, medical, security, navigation, photography, field repairs, and a dozen other topics, mix it with great food, some free beers, whisky tasting, cigar appreciation, fly fishing, hay rides for the kids, you name it.

    So book your summer holidays now.

    Can not wait for this! Such an incredible event. I've got several new comers this year in our convoy. They are in for a great time.

    I plan on attending. This will be my first time at the MAOF and my first ever overland rally/event/festival. I'm pretty excited about going. Ordering my tickets on Friday. Just ordered both Purple Lizard maps. Can't wait!

    Those maps are the best, I wish I could get them for all of North America.

    Lol. These will be the first maps I've purchased from Purple Lizard. I mostly just use google satellite view or google earth for mapping; though lately I have been using bing maps to map out my Trans NJ Trail. Can't wait to get them in. Ordering my passes now!
