Routes are subject to change, because, well, overlanding: Make a plan > Execute the plan > Forget the plan. I fully expect to discuss and plan routes along the way.
I've marked what I believe could be acceptable campsites; however, I don't have any experience in this region. Therefore, exact camping coordinates are unknown. Camping will be dispersed, with no facilities or services. This will be a 100% pack it in, pack it out adventure. No trash will be left behind. If you plan to attend, please read the rules and information at the Forest Service website as well as for the Buffalo National River.
I currently have 2 confirmed, including myself, and one other tentative. I'm setting this up for 6 rigs, PLUS the other two that I have coming for a total of 8. Anything more and I might not enjoy myself unless someone else wants to take lead.
These roads are new to me, so i'm not sure what to expect. I believe they are mostly simple dirt roads, but I did route a few short "trails." There are a couple creek fords in the route, but I don't expect much water unless we get rain, in which case we can route around. Because this will be off-highway and i'm not sure what to expect, i'm going to require 4x4 and high clearance.
Finally, if you're really familiar with this area and have any thoughts, tips, tricks, awesome camping spots, things we need to see, or want to play leader for a weekend, feel free to let me know. I'm open to suggestions.
