Frank, what route are you using now? Here's mine:
Day 1 - Bentonville to Elkins
Day 2 - Elkins to Ozark
Day 3 - Ozark to Morrilton/Petit Jean SP
Day 4 - Morrilton to Little Rock
Day 5 - Rest Day
Day 6 - Little Rock to Hot Springs
Day 7 - Hot Springs to Murfressboro
Day 8 - Murfreesboro to Mt. Ida
Day 9 - Mt. Ida to Mt. Magazine
Day 10 - Mt. Magazine to Van Buren
Day 11 - Van Buren to Bentonville
If you haven't toured before, the Ozarks might be rather difficult for a first go. You may want to look at the Katy Trail in Missouri which can be completed 1 way in 3-4 days. Also, what kind of equipment are you using?

I am graduating and commissioning into the Air Force on May 11th, and I have to report on the 29th of May. So I don't have much time. I am planning a 5 or six day tour with a departure date of the 17th from Fayetteville. This probably does not give you enough time, but your welcome to come along if you would like. Other wise I would be happy to share my rote with you. I am open to any and all suggestions.
