    Default ADVENTURE OVERLAND SHOW, Northamptonshire, England 6-7 October 2012

    If anybody is venturing over the pond to England this year, I hope you don't mind me telling you about my new show in late summer.

    ADVENTURE OVERLAND … the national 4x4, bike & trekking travel show, will be held at Whilton Mill, nr. Daventry, Northamptonshire NN11 2NH (basically it's in central England approx. 75 miles north of London). ADVENTURE OVERLAND aims to span the entire overland and adventure travel scene whether it be organised tours/safaris or independent travel.

    Encompassing all forms of travel without bias, it will include everything from 4x4's to all-wheel-drive expedition trucks, trailbikes/enduro/dirt bikes to long-distance tourers, mountain bikes to tandems, adventure sports in the UK to treks, tours, expeditions and explorations in far-flung foreign lands.

    It also incorporates an element that's linked to all these forms of travel - bushcraft - a specialised field encompassing survival skills, wilderness training, bushlore, tracking, navigation and first aid training, knowledge and application. In a nutshell, it's a new type of all-embracing event that has never been held before.

    There will also be free entry to all overland vehicles/campervans/trucks over 3.5 tonnes as display vehicles, so please inform any owners you may know.

    Here’s hoping you will be able to join us in October!

    It’s all systems go for ADVENTURE OVERLAND this coming weekend –

    Trade stands are completely full up (have been for nearly a month), loads of display vehicles, there’s a full programme of seminars/talks/lectures with some top people giving up their time, the bushcraft demo area has been set up, there’s even a floodlit 2-hr enduro kart race scheduled for the Saturday night – looking good!

    Just remember to offer up a prayer to the rain gods to stay away!

    Camping ‘pay on the day’ still available although filling fast, plus of course day admission 10:00 – 17:00 Sat, 10:00 – 16:00 Sun. £10 adults, children under 16 yrs free.

    Me, I’m off to site to start setting up, so see you all this coming weekend … it’s going to be a good ’un! - the UK's No.1 4x4 directory
