Thanks.
Have not been up there in about a week. Right now I'm in North Carolina. Last time I was up there everything was good!

Hope you have a great time

I knew that southern Missouri and northern Arkansas had a lot of rain/flooding a week or two ago; thank you for the update.

I've never been to the Oark Cafe, nor have I ridden push mountain; needless to say I'm overdue for both.

SUNDAY MAY 21

This is highway 16. Go north from Cass on 23 for about 12 miles and turn right 16 East and then go maybe 14 miles to Pettigrew.

You can get around it - but be careful because it's kinda big gravel
.
.
.


From 103 up to Oark is fine. 215 West to 23 has a lot of mud and debris and rocks.

In general - be careful because it looks like there was a lot of storms and flash floods and stuff can be on the roadway.
We didn't have any trouble - just be aware.

No matter where you go, there you are.

Thank you for the information. My trip got postponed until June 3rd-6th so hopefully things will clear up a little. Obviously not this particular section

I wouldn't let this spot keep anyone from running that section of 16. I went through there just before my trip to North Carolina, but didn't get around to posting anything on it before I left.

They have a short section of gravel going around it. Just slow down and take it easy. I'm going to say it wasn't that bad, and I HATE gravel.
