Rally Point Notes:

The southern terminus of the route is at Buzzard Roost in Hoosier National Forest and the northern terminus is at the Indiana Dunes National Park. This route is designed to highlight the diversity of the Hoosierland. It highlights not only several of the offroading parks of Indiana but cultural and natural attractions that make Indiana unique. Participants will drive their own vehicles from point to point along the route. The route will be published using Gaia software in a gpx format. Good navigational skills and map reading are a must because many of the areas that will be traveled through will not have cell service. Many of the road we will be using are unmarked. Anyone who is interested in overlanding and can provide and drive their own vehicle is welcome. Overlanding with a group takes the edge off living on the edge. That said you are expected to be fully self supporting on your trip. Food, fuel, shelter, clothing, toilet facilities are not provided for on this trip. We will work to help each other if there is an emergency but you are expected to have working knowledge of your vehicle and how to do basics like setting up camp and change your own tire if need arises.

Please note the Indiana State Park rules for firearms and pets:

Any firearm (except lawfully possessed handguns), BB gun, air gun, CO2 gun, bow and arrow, paint gun or spear gun in possession in a state park MUST BE UNLOADED OR UNNOCKED AND STORED IN A CASE OR LOCKED WITHIN A VEHICLE, except when owner is participating in an activity authorized by WRITTEN PERMIT.

Dogs, cats or other pets must be caged or KEPT ON A LEASH no longer than 6 feet and must be attended at all times. Pet waste must be properly disposed.
