Venture Crew 2161 hosted a backpacking trip on the Courtois Section of the Ozark Trail. They camped Friday night at Ozark Outdoors. After breakfast Saturday morning the Crew was shuttled to the Ozark trailhead at Bass's Resort. From Bass's they backpacked 8 miles to where they crossed sections of the Huzzah and Courtois Creeks. They camped overnight at the Courtois primitive campground. Sunday they completed the remaining 5 miles to the Ozark Outdoors trailhead. Photos provided by Andy Sandroni and Chris Cain.

It rained on us for about 2 1/2 hours. Other than that, the float went well. We collected some trash. We recovered a canoe left behind on a previous float. A good time was had by all. Thanks to all that helped.
Joining him for this special day were Master of Ceremonies John DiMercurio, Boy Scouts representative Terry Madden, and many fellow Scouts and relatives. Nathan presented mentor pins to John DiMercurio and Ken Boning.
