Backpacking- Ozark Highland Trail, Part 1

This past weekend Jason took a 4 day backpacking trip with his friend Kelly & Kelly's nephew. They did the first leg of the Ozark Highland Trail, which was 38 miles!

Ready to head out to Kelly's house (2 hours away in AR) at 5:30 am last Friday.

His pack weighed 34 lbs (without water weight). He said some things will definitely get left at home next time...he says that every time he returns from a backpacking trip!

He only took 3 pictures :(
(This first one with the wrench happened just minutes after picking up Kelly & Austin)
This was his caption on Facebook for this photo:
"Tank of gas $78, New tire because a 13mm open ended wrench somehow punctured it $128, Backpacking in beautiful weather and sleeping next to the sound of a stream - Priceless"

They had to cross 5 rivers- ice cold ones he said!
