This was my favorite picture in the Ozarks. Although the climbing itself was subpar I'm making up for it currently in Jackson Falls.

During my stay in the Ozarks I hiked to the Twin Falls and Richland Falls three times. First time I got lost and hiked about 24 miles until I made it back to camp, the second time I showed two ladies how to get there and did it in the correct 5 mile loop, and the third time was with my new buddy @thechaser501 and his dog Luna. It was such a beautiful hike with new things to see every time.

I'm alive and I've made it out of the Ozarks! Sort of lost track of the days but I think it was 9, either way I had an amazing time exploring Richland Creek. These are only pictures of the first couple days, there are plenty more to come. When you don't have a kayak the second best option is a foam board!

Did you hear about the camping trip?
It was IN-TENTS!
Sorry I don't know what's gotten into me since I set up camp near Corney Lake, LA. It's been a very relaxing day hiking, fishing, and lounging around. In other news, I tried SPAM for the first time today...not as bad as people make it out to be.

The NRPA Conference was very successful and gave me much to think about in my future. New Orleans was also fun, but I'm ready to get back out in the woods. It was great spending time with my dad and meeting his coworkers for the first time.

Let's try this again... hitting the road with a full-sized Nissan Armada 4x4 and made it to Kerr Lake to start off and campout with my Boy Scout troop. Making my way to New Orleans for the NRPA conference next week.

If girls can get away with showing their butt off on Instagram so can I! πŸŒŠπŸ‘ Snagged a couple fun ones on my 8'0 Plank before my camera fogged up, of course as the waves got better. Still had a blast at home!

The rain let up and I decided to continue along the trail I found yesterday. Reached 2 of the 3 peaks with some bouldering in between before the sky's turned dark again. Biked the 4 miles home in a downpour, but it was worth the views.

A little bit of good shined through the bad today. I found out that I blew the transmission in my car and I will be in town for 3 days while it is rebuilt. Meanwhile I was told about some fun trails in biking distance so I checked them out to relieve some stress. After a nice bike ride through the college campus and a nice hike through the woods I found a little bouldering spot before the rain came down. Definitely going to explore this some more while I'm in town.

Today was interesting. Woke up to a lite rain, made breakfast, and decided to go on a hike. A ranger found me during the hike and told me I needed to head back, pack up camp and evacuate the park because of Irma. I did so and found a cool spot in Indiana that I was going to drive to. Over half way there and my car's transmission decided to act up and only allow me to go 30 mph on a 70 mph interstate. I drove 10 miles like that until I finally found an exit and little to my surprise all of the auto shops were closed. So tonight I'm having dinner in my trailer and sleeping in my car at Walmart. Hopefully I'll get everything fixed tomorrow and continue on, it's only day 2...
