    Heh. I have a 30 dollar Walmart chair that is the most comfortable thing I sit in besides the Aeron at home or the TRD seats in my truck. I'm not against spending money where it counts, but yeah, it is totally possible to get stupid about it.

    That said, while there is a certain sort of Bling Bling suck the money of you thing going at the ExPo, my wife is really excited about the womens only offroading and marshalling(spotting) classes; and the sort of low-key "you can do this, here's how" sort of adventure planning.

    She sorta wants to do something like this, but most domestic stuff along those lines is so dominated by the HurfDurf Bro-Dude set that it's hard for her to maintain interest. Can't say I blame her - I'm a dude, and most of that brah-dude hurf-durf attitude annoys me, too.

    Anyway - it should be a fun trip for us, and if any of you are out there, Stop by any evening, I'll share a sconnie beer with you and we'll have a giggle at the absurdity of it all.

    Any idea wha area y'all will be camping in at Mormon Lake. Dad and I plan on trying to get the same area we had last year, right next to the offroad course, on the close side of the camping area. Good spot, backed up against a barb wire fence. So, it helps limit the amount of neighbors surrounding you (ie none behind you) :)

    Yeah, Got my father into off roading a few years back after he bought a 2011 FJ. He has been to events but this is one we haven't done before. Should be a good time.
