I'm tentatively planning an Ozark Trail hike this fall, basically as a part of my long term plan of prepping for longer trails, such as the AT. I normally hike alone, but due to not being familiar with the OT at all and for safety reasons, I would like to have a partner on this trip. My schedule is pretty flexible, I'm thinking that 230 miles in 16 days isn't unreasonable. I could get more time if I need to. Resupply options seem pretty thin, but I've carried 10 days at a time before, so just one stop would take me through. Any advice is also appreciated.
Not sure why I didn't see this, as I would have answered sooner. Unfortunately, due to my wife contracting Covid, I had to cancel/postpone this trip. Now I'm trying to decide between spring or fall 2022.
