Here we go……. the Venture Unknown big trip of the year! Join us for the ultimate expedition of 2024 – the Ozark Overland Adventure Trail, also featuring the High Water Mark Trail! After two years of anticipation, our determined crew is ready to embark on a week-long journey through the breathtaking Ozark National Forest. Embark on a journey rich in history, crossing over 70 streams of turquoise waters, treading along muddy paths, and sleeping beneath a star-studded sky.

This isn't just any trip; it's a departure from the everyday into a week filled with exploration and bonding. With no fixed itinerary and a spirit of adventure, we'll embrace each day as it comes, celebrating survival and joy in the wilderness. Our journey will be marked by laughter around the campfire, indulgence in great food and drinks, and the shared triumphs over the challenges the terrain throws our way.

Teamwork and preparedness will be our guides, ensuring we not only enjoy but thrive in this unique landscape. As we conclude our adventure and head back to civilization, we'll carry with us an unbreakable bond and stories that we'll recount for years to come.

Before the trip

With this being the big trip of the year we will have 2 mandatory conference calls. #1 will be to answer questions and concerns. #2 Will be appx a week or two prior to our departure day to ensure we are all ready to go and answer any lingering questions or concerns. Please make an effort to attend these two calls. There will be two dates to choose from that will be communicated for each of these call.

If any questions prior to or after registration feel free to reach out via messenger or email. A FB messenger chat will be created for all that are planning to come appx two months before the departure.

We use GMRS radios during our rides. We highly recommend this type of communications. If you need recommendations on what to buy we will be glad to help. We will use GMRS CH17 (462.600)

What's included?

You can expect Sean to use his many years running guided trips to help you adapt to being off-road in remote spots of the wilderness and ensure he has your best interest always at the forefront. We never leave a man behind. So if a mechanical failure happens there will be plans to help recover your rig. You can expect a welcoming community of folks that always welcome you to the fire and who knows maybe Sean will share his famous Mango Margaritas with you. You can expect a VU sticker that captures this adventure so you can look back and remember the fun! Michelle's delicious homemade banana bread will be served on the final morning at our gratitude circle (this is worth the cost) just ask anyone. Educational opportunities during this ride will include driving techniques, gear recommendations, communication and navigation lessons. We also will share a GPX file of our route that includes camps in the area. You also will have access to a trip photo album.
