    I'm carrying a Ozark Trail tent, Coleman stove and a sleeping bag complete with pillow.

    Prolly some 100% deet bug spray too.

    And a cooler....of course...

    So good luck keeping up with my fancy gear!

    Dude. You're gonna have to camp in your own area. No way that stuff is #EAF acceptable.

    100% deet!? Do you even care about the environment? :rofl:

    If we continue our lack of rain, the crossings should be manageable. Especially for stock rigs and novices.

    As for mapping, etc, others will have to chime in on that. I've never ran the "official" route but I've been quite a few places around it over the past few years. I haven't been able to make a trip to the Ozarks at all this year, so I can't comment on the condition of trails and routes.

    Look on OverlandGuild.org, as Jayston posted routes and info there. He's the "guy" that basically created that route.

    Here's the link to the Overland Guide thread by Jayston that has quite a few of the HMW trails mapped, they can be downloaded via DropBox and viewed in Google Earth. The HWM trail is actually a collection of many trails that, if ran consecutively, while span about 3 days depending on how many people are with you and how much time you spend driving vs sight-seeing. Be sure to read his conditions and stick to them, you'll notice that no one has posted the full trail from start to finish and they're trying to keep it that way. Feel free to record it for personal use though.

    Due to a long strand of unforeseen events I will not be able to make the trip up this year.

    I don't have any official mapping but its pretty well laid out in GPS map form on Google.
