Ohio Valley Overland's Trans Hoosier Overland Route (T.H.O.R.)
Because of input from many people outside of the OB community that are attending the dates have been change to accommodate others.
The trip will begin at Buzzard Roost Recreational Area in the Hoosier National Forest and travels unpaved county roads all the way to The Indiana Dunes on Lake Michigan. The trip is designed to highlight many of the things that make Indiana a very special place. It is not a straight shot but a meandering route that stops at many historic, geological, culturally significance and quirky waypoints along the way. We will incorporate the natural resources of the Hoosier state by camping at many out of the way state parks. We will visit three off-road parks for those who want to flex their rigs a little more than others. There will be opportunities for volunteer work along the way to provide those that like a little stewardship with their adventuring. There will be opportunities for fishing, hiking, biking, kayaking and motorcycling as well. We will be stopping by the Hi Lift factory in Bloomfield for a tour as well.

As some of you know I am a teacher in Jefferson County Kentucky. If you have been following the news out of Kentucky you will realize that teachers have been locked in a 3 year battle with our Governor over our pensions. Over this semester teachers have stages 6 days so far of sick outs. These sick outs have caused the school year to be extended. How is this relevant to you? Well it has caused me to have to move the dates of the inaugural running of the THOR twice already. I know many of you have planned your vacation times around this event. Because of my contractual agreement with the district I must stay in school until the last day. I regret that I will have to move the official running of the THOR to June 15-19. I realize this is a major inconvenience for many. If you would still like to run the THOR the weekend of June 8-12 I will release the route on June 7th as originally planned so that you can still keep your plans. I will be at Buzzard Roost on the 8th to meet and greet and host the first sections of the THOR from Buzzard Roost to Interlake and back. Then on Sunday I will lead the next leg of the Route to Redbird. On June 14 I will be at Buzzard Roost to lead the full trip. For those that will be able to reschedule I hope it will be worth the wait. Please understand that this situation is out of my control. I have provided to link to a news article about the situation. I appreciate the trust people have put into me for this trip and apologize once again. I can\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t wait to finally meet all those that have been corresponding with over the last few months.
