After a few years’ hiatus, Vermont Overland (VO) once again held their popular Land Rover-only Vermont Over-Land Rover event over Memorial Day weekend. Although other VO events are open to all marques, this event was designed by VO head Peter Vollers as a tribute to the Land Rover community that has formed a core to the group for many years.
The event was held on Peter’s personal property, with primitive camping available in several different settings depending on how rugged you wanted to go – fields, hilltops, or deep woods. Designed as a family-friendly event, there’s a pizza truck and breakfast sandwiches on site, all local in line with VO’s strong commitment to their “Locavore” ethic.
Off-site, there were plenty of off-roading experiences to be had on Vermont’s famous Class IV roads – legal unmaintained trails and right of ways, many dating back to pre-colonial times, some of which are among the most difficult trails in the northeast. Leaders from VO took people down four levels of trail runs, as well as several night runs.
A definite highlight was the Saturday raffle, with lots of prizes donated by Atlantic British. On Sunday, awards were given out for Best Camp Story and Worst Breakage, each of which earned more Atlantic British swag.
VOLR is planned to be a new permanent annual staple in the Northeast Land Rover calendar, so mark your calendars now for 2019.
