A Mercedes Unimog, and a few friends tackle the extreme class 4 off road trails in Vermont. A rocky uphill stream bed tests the articulation, & clearance of the mighty Unimog 416 Doka.
This weekend of trail running took place at the Vermont Overland.
ABOUT THE EVENT:
VERMONT OVERLAND BIRDWATCHING SAFARI is the epitome of the exploration aspect of Vermont Overland. Participants in VOBS use their well-appointed vehicles to venture out into the Vermont backcountry to view their favorite indigenous bird species. Along the way, they’ll make stops at local pottery shops, country stores, nano-breweries and historic sites. Many love to find remote cemeteries and imagine how Vermont looked when horse and buggy meandered the ancient roads. Some just come to take in the amazing fall foliage and enjoy the localvore food trucks back at camp. Whatever the reason, VOBS has become a cult overlanding bucket list gathering and we like that just fine.
GET OUT THERE! This is what sets VOBS apart from other overlanding events: you can actually get out and do some real off-road overlanding exploration. We’ll teach you how to navigate Vermont’s prolific unmaintained ancient road networks on your own to find the best bird watching areas. You’ll be able to test your skills and equipment over a wide variety of overlanding terrain. When you get back to the venue in the afternoon, grab a beverage and come over to the vendor area and just hang out, meet all sorts of fun-loving, interesting, like-minded people and thoroughly enjoy yourself.
