    Thanks everyone who came. Please post up your picks, I was running around and didn't really take any.

    Hey Ray that would be a good plan...my wife and I made it to Charlottesville, VA and decided to spend the weekend at a resort with A/C...we have camped plenty but when the ambient in 95+ the Jet Tent can become a sauna. We were hoping to get away from some of the SC heat and enjoy the "cool" temps of PA....anyway we will try again next year.

    Thanks for posting up photos! I was so busy talking to people about Lizard Maps and suggesting different routes that i didn't shoot nearly as many pics as I wanted. All the fearcasting about rain and we got one 10 minute afternoon shower, which was delightful to run around in. It was a beautiful, although steamy hot, weekend to be part of a great gathering of folks. There were a few swimming lakes within 10 minutes so people could escape for a while.

    The food was fantastic - EcoVents (from Millheim, PA) showed up with a massive homebuilt smoker on a flatbed trailer (it's name is Leroy) and cooked up brisket, BBQ tofu, corn on the cob, potatoes, mac and cheese as well as breakfast burritos. Standing Stone Coffee (from Huntingdon, PA) was there every day with coffee and muffins in the morning, but the iced coffee and smoothies were the ticket to get thru those hot afternoons.

    The presentations were all top-notch, and the evening films and presentations under the moon and stars were about as perfect as it gets. And people got to drive a UniMog! Thank you to everyone who came out and made this event such a fun weekend.

    The EcoVents food crew arrived in a topless 4Runner and a Willy's. I can't resist a nice 80 Series and this one was a perfect unicorn - cloth interior, no sunroof, solid rear window, triple-locked and well built. Bryan Dorr's Exploring Elements rig is always fun to see and he is always fun to talk with. And you could take hot lap in a UniMog!

    Here's a few more: Scott Brady gave a few great talks, this one was on tires. I thought I was pretty well versed in tires but I definatley learned a lot. When somebody shows up with a giant smoker on a flatbed with a wood stove welded to the front half you know there will be some good eats happening: EcoVents did not disappoint! The one rain shower was a strong one, but we had ample warning and actually enjoyed running round in it, once we got our tents situated. Central PA is simply a beautiful place to explore!

    Default It WAS hot....

    But boy, was it FUN!!!

    HUGE Thanks and huge shout out to The Henwoods, Ray and his hard working family, Scott, Bryon, Bobbie, Don, Erik, Mario and ALL the Vendors that made the Festival a hit!! It was a really nice, laid back weekend, with awesome things to do and see around every corner. The rain surrounded us a few times, but all in all, just a few showers. Never a shortage of good folks and old friends, incredible overland setups, educational classes, and stunning eye candy in every direction with the all the AT Trailers and 4wheel Campers.

    Now a few shots..










































    Till next year!!

    There is plenty to do in fall. I think the time of year is perfect, but, yes it can be hot. In all reality, if you can't handle a festival with dynamic weather, how are you going to do when traveling for periods of time.......
