I heard attendance was up this year.  It was the second year at the Tuthill fairground location and that seems to work better than the Mormon Lake one.  Complaints last year were that the motos were too far and separated from the other overland exhibits so this year they put it amongst the other stuff but it made for a half mile walk from the camp sites so one trip back and forth was a mile... at 7,000' in elevation!  Do that a few times and it wears you out.

I heard some vendors had trouble with commerce transactions given they had no cell signal.  I had a few bars on Verizon but it was sketchy.

Just from memory this is who I saw there:  Sena, Wolfman, Jesse Luggage, Outback Motortek, Clearwater Lights, Mosko Moto, KTM bike demo's, AlpineStars, etc...

I think Verizon got overloaded in the middle of the day.  My phone went from 4G to 1X at noon.  

There seemed to be so much more stuff to see this year.  Just walking the vendors wore me out.
