Overland Expo is the premier overlanding event series in the world –– and Bronco Nation will be there. Join us!

View Bronco Event

I already registered with the Premium package using my military discount, but as I was checking out the map I now see that we have a Bronco Nation area. I'm coming with my Bronco and a teardrop trailer (about 11' feet long). Am I able to park and hang with my fellow Bronco Nation?

What or when will Bronco Nation be doing "excursions" during the EXPO? I just signed up for a bunch of classes/instruction, but may need to skip out of those if we are doing Bronco trip.
Hear @David talk about them in detail here: (linked you right to the spot)
.

We will be doing two on Saturday and two on Sunday: times and details.

Mental, you can definitely come hang with us, and we would love if you did! Here's the daily schedule. @David has been working with the Overland Expo team and has been on site; he would have a better understanding of the parking.

Yes! You certainly can. When you check in, let them know that you're with Bronco Nation and they'll direct you to our camping area.

Who is attending the Bronco Basecamp at Overland Expo PNW July 8 - 10 in Redmond, OR?

We are driving to Redmond from Lynnwood, WA in our 21 Big Bend. Google maps sez it's a 6-hour drive, I haven't decided if we leave early Friday morning or the night before. This will be our first time attending. So I'm not sure what we are getting into, we plan to camp in the Bronco, bringing some camping basics (stove, water, food, bed, etc.), and going to rough it out of the back.

I've RSVP'd for the Saturday Sister's High Country Tour and the Sunday Off-Road at Cline Buttes OHV Area - looking for some off-road fun in our Bronco (we call her Ruby).

What do y'all recommend for securing our camping stuff when we go on the tours? I don't want to load everything in the Bronco, but how secure would it be if I left a few things at the campsite?

Any tips or suggestions very much appreciated.

Pic is my rig having a little fun.

So glad you guys are coming out! Here's the Basecamp schedule for Friday, in case that helps you decide ... Friday seems like the best day to walk the show (open until 5):

Friday

8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Basecamp)

The Bronco Nation booth is open! Come hang out with us, rest up for the round of product browsing, check out the Broncos on display, and chat with Bronco experts. We’ll have some merch available: community classics and sure-to-be new favorites, including hats, stickers, shirts, and more.

8 a.m. to 9 a.m. (Basecamp)
Breakfast. If you’ve been to a Bronco Nation event, you know we always kick off each day with something vital: Coffee. Along with it, we’ll be supplying a hot breakfast. Grab a hot cup and a burrito before you head out to explore the expo. Coffee is served until 9 a.m. (or while supplies last).

4 p.m. to 5 p.m. (Basecamp)
Meet back at Basecamp to close out your day! We’ll be set up with camp chairs around the fire, ready for the late afternoon Fireside Chats. Show off the new products you picked up, talk about the best rig you saw, and go over your overlanding plans together. It’s always a great time to meet others in the community, and one of the fastest ways to make Bronco friends!


As for security, we will always have someone at camp, and we're tucked away from the main camping/vendor area, but there still is the potential for outsiders to be in our space.

We're coming from the same area and are debating the same regarding departure time. Look forward to seeing some neighbors!

I’m coming from Queen Creek, AZ and making a tour of it. Planning to hit Sequoia National (Wed) Park and Redwood National park (Thursday) on my way up. I’m staying all 3 days primarily for the classes, but making the Saturday Cline Butte Bronco Nation adventure.
