Trans Vermont Expedition (Green/Blue)
August 16, 2023
An Expedition through Vermont Class IV backroads to experience all that Vermont has to offer. This is a multi-day Overland expedition to test your Overland vehicle and setup. We will be traversing from one end of the state to the other using Class IV roads and scenic backroads to experience some of the beautiful attractions that Vermont has. Attractions can include breweries, local swimming holes, natural landmarks, country stores, and historical sites.
This will be a point-to-point Overland expedition. We will be camping in a different spot every night. You will need to have you and your vehicle prepared (see Vehicle requirements) for three days and four nights of self-sufficient adventure travel.
We will be making fuel and provisions stops to replenish our supplies and get a taste of some
Vermont localvore. There may even be a maple creemee stop or two.
