Adventure: #28 Ozark Trail - Karkaghne Section

I had the pleasure of hiking 19 miles of the Ozark trail in the Karkaghne section. The weather was beautiful for all three days. The trail was a bit easier than the Taum Sauk section I did back in May. Luckily there was no snow this time out. I certainly have the bug to do more sections of the Ozark Trail in the future. There are quite a few sections so it should keep me busy.

Prepping for Another Hike

I am finishing up my packing for my next trip which will be a few days back on the Ozark Trail. This time I will be doing the lower half of the Karkaghne section. Total mileage should be about 18 miles. I have just about got all the gear dialed in with 17 pounds piled into the ULA Circuit. Plus I will bring about 5 pounds of food. This was sort of a surprise trip I was planning a trip the following weekend. I hope to get that one in too. The big excitement is I ordered a Bear Bag system from Zpacks which was scheduled for delivery tomorrow but it seems it is coming today. So it will make the trip and lower my base weight by an ounce or two.  Good times.  Look for some video hopefully next week.
