It had been quite a while since I have gotten to do an overnight with Joe and Cory. In fact, like most of us it had been more than a year. I have been out solo on some walks, but no overnights, so with all of us vaccinated and each feeling the need for a little "fresh air" Cory proposed we get out just for a short overnight.
We have a particular campsite that we like on the Ozark Trail, It is a short 3 hour walk from a good safe parking area at Johnson Shut Ins Campground and it is normally used to access the Goggin's Mountain hiking loop.
Meeting early Saturday morning and planning to come back Sunday around lunch time, we are off.
Not having done an overnight in a while and with a nod to a bit of luxury, I packed everything including the kitchen sink. I brought a chair! But don't panic though it was still only 21 pounds with food and water!
Thanks Cory and Joe. It was a great weekend
