Planning for the Overland Expo: Nissan Frontier On Display

email this page

You have a chance to prove me wrong, to my face. It won't be tough.

My wife and I, as we plan our Veg-O-Matic style presentations (" slices! It dices! ... But wait!  There's more!") for the Overland Expo, have a little conflict.  Little.  Teensy weensy.

See, she thinks that "the guys" attending the Overland Expo will want to check out our truck and get the scoop on how I accomplished a number of the modifications.  Like the shower.  Or the double battery.  That stuff.

But I was like, "Nah."

And she was like, "Yeah."

And I was like, "Cha. Whatever."

And she was like, "Mark." She paused.  "Who else is in the exhibitor area?"

I stuttered. "I-I-I-I-I-I-guess companies like SportsMobile, Four Wheel Campers, ARB . . ."

And she was back to being like, "See.  Truck stuff.  Truck stuff.  We don't want to look like Girl Scouts out there.  Hellooo-o!  Bright green frog says enough."

Alrighty.  During the Overland Expo (April 16, 17, and 18; we have a booth in the exhibitor area.  "Booth" is a loose term. In this case, it means our truck, this unconventionally black Nissan Frontier, will be parked and set up while we share our travels and short presentations regarding family travel.

And by "set up," I mean the truck will be sporting a fresh wax job, a new A.R.E. camper shell, and a nice new Hannibal Roof Top Tent with a Jumbo Kit privacy room.  Admittedly, it's kind of neat.

So, I think Brooke is right.  The call to action: come by our the booth at the Overland Expo.  Say hi, tell me some stories, I'll tell you some of mine. And, please, peek around the truck.

Perhaps I'll practice my late night pitchman techniques a-la Ron Popeil, famed salesman of the Veg-O-Matic. "It sets up to perfection without shedding a tear!"
