Natural State Overland started up in the mind of founder Randy Putt back in 2014, or at least that is the first date of the first on the website.
Randy put on the Natural State Overland Rendezvous in the Ozarks in 2017 which brought together many different like minded people from all over the state (and surrounding states) and gave them an event where they could meet people like themselves. This sparked a Facebook page and all kinds of things around the Natural State that brought all kinds of off-roaders together. So in January of 2018 one guy decided to put together a day trip through the Ouachita NF and invited as many members of NSO that wanted to come. We had a great turnout and a really good day.
