As an introverted agoraphobe, I would sooner spend a weekend in a custom picture framing store listening to the Jonas Brothers and drinking kombucha than going to a rally with a large group. But that's just me. I prefer to seek out the Land Rover community in small groups where I can get to know people, have conversations without interruption, and cultivate friendships away from crowds. This is also how I prefer to organize my trips. My idea of a good time is not descending on a beautiful landscape like a swarm of locusts to enjoy it with hundreds of other people. I'd rather go drive these trails and convene my own rally of 3 vehicles weeks before this large event.

Amen to that (I'd skip the framing store and kombucha, though).

I enjoy some of the larger events close by but if I’m making a long haul for a trip I’m going with a small group and on my own terms. I’d hate to drive 24 hours to end up in a group of 20 trucks stuck behind someone who can’t drive
