If you own a 4×4 vehicle and enjoy the overlanding lifestyle or you just want to learn more about this fast growing passion you are invited to join Natural State Overland at Byrd’s Adventure Center, in the beautiful Ozark Mountains of Arkansas October 19 -21 2018, where you will rendezvous with others who share your interest in overland style travel and all the adventure it brings! If you haven’t experienced the trails and backroads of the ozarks, you don’t want to miss this opportunity, and if you have this is your chance to get back out there. Come share your experiences, knowledge, and enthusiasm while you learn from others and talk to vendors about their overland related products and participate in our vendor sponsored raffle all in a family friendly atmosphere! We are also planning various presentations on overland related topics, and trip reports, as well as ample opportunity to get out and explore the beautiful Ozark National Forest. Byrd’s is also hosting their Fall Fly-In this same weekend. So those attending the Rendezvous will have the opportunity to watch these single engine aircraft arrive and depart from Byrd’s grass airstrip!

Crawling for Reid is a charity off road event that was started in 2015 to help a young child in Marietta, Georgia with the astronomical costs of dealing with a terrible genetic skin disease. The child’s name is Reid Underwood and he was diagnosed with Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) shortly after his birth in May of 2014. This event started to help the Underwood Family with health costs and has grown and expanded to also help support the groundbreaking research that is being conducted by Reid’s doctor, Dr. Jakub Tolar, at the University of Minnesota’s Children’s Hospital.
Make your plans now, this is the one event for everyone. We will be wheeling and relaxing all weekend long, Saturday will start with orientation and guided trail runs for all levels of drivers.
