I have previously put on this event for a local Jeep group I use to hang out with and it seemed to be a big hit.
Was curious if anyone here may be interested in doing it.
It's just back roads but we stop at old homesteads, schools, bridges, cemeteries, and ghost (or almost ghost) towns.
Currently I have 4 routes, Kingfisher county, Western Logan county, Eastern Logan county, and Payne county (needs to be reworked).
Each is about 50 miles but takes a number of hours to do given the number of stops and slow speed.
I have a link in my signature to the FB page with some more pics.

If I were to plan one it would be in a few months when the temps are a bit lower.

I would like to join a run like this in OK. Last year I ran some of the OAT and linked it with the Gypsum Hills of Southern KS. It was a great trip! I do a few guided runs through the lessor seen sites of KS each year for the Konza group and appreciate the offer of being led vs. being the leader in OK.

Soooo... I went and connected all the routes and ended up with about 290 miles from Kingfisher up to Pawnee and down to Arcadia with a stop over at Lake McMurtry (primitive camping).
I think it turned out well and is a definite possibility.

Do you have to get permission from the Indian reservations ?

Id be interested in driving up from dfw and hopefully camping kn some cooler weather
I may be a bit pessimistic but I am not sure it's worth the drive up from Dallas when the Ouachita National Forest is closer. lol
You are certainly more than welcome to come up though! 1565642972864.png

No sir, it's all just public back roads.
THE LINKED UP TRAIS WITH CAMPING WOULD BE A BLAST, especially for a three of four day weekend. It would take me a day to get there and a day to get back, luckily I don't have to depend on week ends to go places so it would just be a good long trip for me to enjoy.
