My name is Steve Garufi, a Coloradan who can't get enough of all the outdoor opportunities in the world.
For years, I have been mulling a hike of the 223-mile Ouachita Trail in eastern Oklahoma and Arkansas, and
if all goes well, I'd like to take it on in late 2014.
I'd certainly do plenty of writing and photography about the adventure, and would
post them similarly to my
bike across America day-to-day journal.
Who knows? Maybe my writing could evolve into a second travel book.
(My first book
is completed and am hopeful it will be published soon.)
Right now, I'm in the research stage about the Ouachita Trail, as so many details must be handled. For now, I'd like to thank two friends,
Ray Nellum in Fort Smith and Garry Duke in North Little Rock for joining my support team.
The adjacent photo shows me smoking a cigar on the summit on Mount Sherman,
elevation 14,036 feet. I've done a lot of mountaineering this way, but
the Ouachita Trail in the beautiful state of Arkansas is calling my name. I've got to do it. :)
