Campsites on the Eleven point are harder to come by as there are very few gravel bars. We had to tie up our canoes in a small cove and hike all our gear up a hill to camp.
Waffletop - thanks for that great video.
A part of our country where I've spent very little time.
I've traveled all over the world and seen many things but the Ozarks will always be special to me, it is unique and a place unto its own.
Great video - I cracked up at a couple of lines in it. "Like a fickle female..." had me almost spilling my coffee. Try that one now...
Again - thank - I thoroughly enjoyed the video - and I swear "one of these days" I'm going to hop on the ol' Suzuki and make that long-slow coast-to-coast tour, taking my time.
Spent a lot of time on the Ozarks but most of it was in the Mark Twain National Forrest that mostly surrounds Ft. Leonard Wood. Great whitetail hunting to be had there. I also spent a lot of afternoons fishing the Big Piney River overflow ponds on the NE edge of the Fort IVO a large gravel pit. Caught largemouth/smallmouth/crappie/stripers and some times rainbows that got into the river after being stocked in the local streams.
Thanks. Interesting video. Went on the Jacks Fork and Current in '67.
Do you remember when the Corp of Engineers wanted to dam the Meramec? That was one of the first successful efforts I can remember of the locals resisting government "improvements".
Many fought hard to defeat it and I am so proud the rivers were saved.
