Podcast 03 – Gotta LOViT – Hiking the Lake Ouachita Vista Trail

In the spring of 2015, my brother, Jacob, and I thru-hiked the Lake Ouachita Vista Trail. The Lake Ouachita Visita Trail, or LOViT to some, stretches about 40 miles across the southern shore of Lake Ouachita in southwest Arkansas in between Hot Springs and Mount Ida.

I might have listened to this episode a few too many times when editing, but it always makes me smile. In this episode, we discuss our ups and downs both literally and figuratively of the hike. I won’t give too much away, but at one point one of us wanted to push the other off of the mountain.

It was a great hike and Jacob’s first backpacking trip. We give lots of advice for first-time backpackers or those who are simply wanting to hone their skills.
