    We're going for it!

    April 7-8

    Center point trail.
    Hike in camping, bluffs, river, woods.

    More details and map to follow.

    I plan on cruising the trail and taking pictures about a week before the event.

    I'll update here.



    Black5 - 1
    Bobsdock - 2
    WestTnScout - 1 - I will be there depending on auto replacement. I was in a wreck on 3/9 and am unsure if I will be able to travel by then.

    Total: 4

    Hey if anyone in Northwest Arkansas is interested Lewis and Clark Outfitters is hosting an orientation/map and compass class with five mile hike at Devil's Den on 3/31. I've read a lot orienteering, but I've never actually put any of it into practice because it's hard to navigate on your own to an arbitrary point.

    I am interested in the meet up, but as of late the previously suggested April 7th date may not be effective for me. But don't not meet up for my sake. I will continue aiming to be there whatever it may be.

    I'm going to miss this due to family visiting, but I've been wanting to explore that area. I look forward to the trip report!

    RSVP is working!
    All maps and pictures welcome. Seems like there are all varieties of maps available.

    Yes, @Syntria you have the correct location.

    I'm going to try to make a trip through there about a week before and post current pictures.

    Thanks, @Wasp , for the reminder!

    Uniforms will be sandals or flip flops, knee high black dress socks, cargo shorts with suspenders. Style of shirt or lack thereof is optional. This is on accordance with some obscure state law, I'm sure.

    When did the standard Ozarks, hillbilly uniform of the day change from overalls, unbuttoned on one side, and barefeet?

    Any idea where I can get a corn cob pipe?

    I vote Syntria in as our Chief Intelligence Officer.

    With the amount of resources she's attached, she's probably already hiding in the bush down there running campground surveillance. We don't want any bears messing with our picnic baskets.

    The uniform changed like 18 months ago. you didn't get the memo ?
    Corn cob pipes are still free with a fill up at all Conoco gas stations.

    Got to thinking about it today, this season will make my 40th year on the Buffalo without a miss. My dad started taking me when I 10 years old it's my favorite place this side of the Rockies.

    News flash!
    My wife said to mention that if any wives want to attend but don't want to do the center point trail, she will be happy to lead a group on the Branson shopping and restaurants trail. It is considered moderate, but possibly expensive for the less cautious.

    That's sad, truly. Too many people underestimate hypothermia. :(

    FYI I may/likely be AWOL for the meet. I'm having a lot of joint pain and my motorcycle has a 3" slash in the back tire from some friendly person at Chic fil A the other day.

    However, I'll do my best to make the next one.

    Just a reminder!

    The time is fast approaching for our first get together. I realize some of you won't be able to make this one, but I'm still planning on arranging more throughout the year, some not as strenuous as others so that everyone can play.

    Hope to see a bunch of you there.

    We should finalize plans by this week.

    If any of you are planning to come in on Friday, please let me know.

    I'm counting the days brother.
    I will be there Friday night.
    I can hike back out Saturday morning and meet people at the trail head if need be.
    Any thoughts on meals ?

    Need to get an idea of who all is coming.
    How far in did you say the camping area is? I'm probably not going to be down until early Saturday morning due to my current incarceration status. For some reason they expect me to be there and actually do my job.:rolleyes:

    I've got a rolling camp kitchen, but the trip back up may be rough...
    Downhill is ok, it has hand brakes.

    Your a brave man taking a rolling camp kitchen down there. It's only about 4 miles down to the river but it's only down on the way in.

    Kind of my thoughts. If we were running semi level ground it would be great. But I'd have to bring a team of draft goats to pull it back up.

    Also wondering if you are going to hike in Friday if you'd want to just secure camp until we arrived as a group, or if you want to walk all the way back up in order to walk back down. Your kind of in a pivotal role here since you're familiar with the area and the trail.
    If you didn't want to walk back out I could get everyone gathered up at the trailhead and we could meet you at the campsite.
    Your choice, of course.

    I can meet everyone at the trailhead.
    What time are we going to be at the trailhead ?

    Current forecast is for a 40% chance for frozen mix that weekend.

    Given that this is our first meet up, and I haven't gotten much response back so far as confirmations go, would we like to postpone this until May?

    I'm still up if we want to go, but I'd like for as many people to show up as possible and have fun.
    Thoughts?
    Comments?

    I stand corrected. 60% chance of rain/snow mix with thunderstorms on Saturday.

    I know we are all double tuff brushbusters, but it may be more fun if we weren't battling hypothermia for our first get together.:confused:

    While I was looking forward to the trip, I am rather concerned with the idea of thunderstorms in the forecast. But, with that said I am still game if everyone else still wants to chance it.

    Not just thunderstorms...mixed with snow...and ice....
    I apparently overlooked my responsibility of a burnt offering on the sacrificial altar to the ancient meteorologists.

    Just checked weather again. Chance of freezing mix gone, chance if foul weather has decreased to less than 40%.

    What y'all be thinkin'?
