 2021 Overlanders Xperience 

Overlanders Xperience is an Off Road Navigation Competition in which participants will have to follow a series of waypoints in a predetermined distance and time frame, overcoming obstacles and challenges in order to get the least penalization points to win the Xperience. It will be 2 days of Routes (Could be Friday Night, Saturday  or Sunday) and several special challenges per category you have to arrive on Friday (Friday and Saturday Night camping are included). We use a private property where special challenges take place. Xperience Check-In is open Friday 12:00P.M to 10:00P.M.  Competition will be on Saturday and Sunday returning to base camp at night on both journeys, Modified category could have a nigth ride on Friday night.  A party will be held On Saturday night.

This is not a speed race, not a guided trip either. Participants will have to navigate by themselves in between checkpoints in the time and distance allotted in a road book that they will be given. Estimated driving time for each day is 7 hours but it could be more. We will have a Base Camp suited for all participants that will have basic facilities, Competitors  will have designated areas to camp,  a raffle will be hold on Saturday night and the awards of the last event will be given to the winners. Winners of this event will be announced via social media and our website on the following weeks and awards will take place on the next Xperience. 

All competitors teams are by their own,  if you get stuck, is your responsability to get out, the organization will NOT rescue you. Remember to have enough water, snacks, insect repelent and survival gear in your vehicle in case you have to spend the night in the woods.
