Deep Ozarks article

Susan Dragoo contacted us at Natural State Overland and asked us to put together a route through the Ozark National Forest for an article she was doing for Overland Journal Magazine. A few of the NSO staff were then invited to join them on their trip through the "Deep Ozarks"!

A special thanks to Chad Warner and Bill Dragoo for making Rendezvous in the Ozarks a part of this video that features Bill and his love for adventure riding as well as overlanding. We are currently working with Bill to bring his DART training to the Rendezvous next year, so if you're into adventure riding, especially the bigger bikes, stay tuned for more information. Rendezvous in the Ozarks Overland Rally 2020 will be held October 16-18 in the beautiful Ozarks of Arkansas.

Big thanks to Nathan Anderson for putting this Rendezvous in the Ozarks Overland Rally 2019 walk around video together. Our 2020 event will be held October 16-18 in the beautiful Ozarks of Arkansas.

While most of our articles have to do with human-powered outdoor recreation, sometimes you need a little extra to get you to that special place. While at Outdoor Retailer this summer, I walked through a large and growing section devoted to Overland Travel that included various tent/sleeping options, extra power, and equipment racks. If you’d like to find out more at a more local level, check out the Ozarks Overland Rally at Byrd’s Adventure Center on the Mulberry this fall.

"For us, Rendezvous in the Ozarks was an opportunity to find others who love spending time in the great outdoors just as much as we do. And like I said, we walked away with so many new ideas and a somewhat fresh perspective on where we’re headed with our own overlanding adventures."
