I got really sick of Hamburgers by the end of this trip, but Brian and his wife Reagan made the best one I ate on the whole trip. Deeliciuous burger!
Not only are they the owners of the famous OARK store but they also are opening a bed and breakfast soon just for sweaty, greasy ADv riders!!! These are some smart folks. They will even have an area where you can work on your bikes around back!
We ended up camping on the Mulberry River at the second park downstream. All was fine, until Travis discovered from some very enthusiastic revelers, that there was a huge concert/rave thing happening nearby soon. The enthusiastic people who had come a day early so they'd have plenty of time to get drunk enough... and used like the word "like" like all the time, man. It's like, they like don't even know they're doing it. We didn't want any part of their affordable beer, bad music camaraderie so we pulled up our tent stakes and camped next to the park Ranger on duty.
