2023 MGO Buffalo River Expedition
Welcome to another NAD Master Guide Outdoor Expedition!
This time the adventure will be at the Buffalo National River using canoes!
The plan is to receive participants on June 11, 2023, at Tyler Bend Campground. This will be our basecamp for 50 participants, and the place we will be able to leave what we don’t need for canoeing. This also will be the starting point for our canoe trip.
We will sleep in Tyler Bend Sunday and Tuesday night (June 11, and 13) as we spend Monday night (June 12) by the Buffalo River. Tuesday evening a shuttle will bring us back to the base camp.
Please plan for paddling between 6-9 hours a day, with some stops.
This place is beautiful and doing our event during the week may improve the canoe traffic.
Wednesday, June 14 is the departure day, with more options for participants who want to take additional time.
Of course, we always have a plan B in case of unpredictable river conditions, as nature has the last word.
Beyond the adventure, our mission is to connect with God in his “favorite church” and make new friends.
