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.
If all goes well, I'd like to take it on in May 2015.
I'd certainly do plenty of writing and photography about the adventure, and would
post reports similar to my
bike across America day-to-day journal.
Who knows? Maybe this could evolve into a second travel book. My first is a memoir is a detailed account of all that happened
on my 2008 bike across America trip.
Right now, I'm in the research stage about the Ouachita Trail, as so many logistics must be handled.
The adjacent photo shows me looking strong and stoic (while utterly exhausted) on the summit of
Mount Sheridan (elevation 13,748 feet),
a peak in the Mosquito Range. I've done a lot of mountaineering in Colorado, but
the Ouachita Trail is calling my name. I've got to do it. :)
