    Default The Official 2018 NW Overland Rally Thread

    OK folks, it's that time of year again, time for a new NWOR thread!

    This year we are pushing the dates back by two weeks, to the weekend before 4th of July.

    So, the 2018 rally will be June 28-July 1.

    Last year due to many snow days in WA and OR, the school year was extended for some districts, meaning that some families couldn't come to the Rally. So this year we've pushed the event back to prevent that problem.

    We will still be in the scenic hamlet of Plain WA, just outside Leavenworth. If you haven't been yet, Leavenworth is a bavarian-themed village in the Cascade Mountains, affectionately called the Washington Alps. It's actually cooler than it sounds.

    We have the same location but we've again rented even more field space. We're also going to build out the off road technical course some more.

    The website is the same, www.nwoverlandrally.com and for now the vendor and activity pages are placeholders from last year, but they do give a good idea of the types of activities and vendors to expect. Ticket sales will be live in January.

    As usual, drive whatcha got, it doesn't matter if it's a Honda Civic or a Sportsmobile, you will still have a great time. And of course, kids and dogs are always welcome, it's a family-friendly event.

    So, who is coming, and what are you bringing?

    Cheers

    Ray

    Glad to hear the event remains in Plain, WA .

    It's an awesome location for the event.

    I might be able to make it this summer with the new dates.

    Here's a short video I did from the roof of my camper that last time I was there. I'm loosing track of when this was, but I think it was 2015:

    I may have to run the Suburban on the off-road course...

    Always a good time. Unfortunately, I'm not sure if I'll be making it this year.

    Woo hoo! Can't wait.

    Hoping to bring the Space Tractor this year, but it might be the PDXJ. Maybe both?
