Alright I know theres already a thread for springfield but wanted to make a fresh one to see who is still around? I am picking up my jeep hopfully tomorrow or Thursday at the latest. Who here is from Springfield? I would definitely like to check out off road park sometime and even go do some riding down around branson and what not.

So who all is on here?
Where do you live?

I will be living and working in Branson from June through August and really want to check out some trails while I'm there. I am not familiar with the area though. Are there some pretty good trails around there?

I live in Springfield and drive an 01 Wrangler.

You should check out the local Jeep club, Ozarks JeepThing. The website is http://ozarksjeepthing.com, we also have a FB page - http://www.facebook.com/groups/ozarksjeepthing/. Our next trail run will be at SMORR in Seymour on the 13th, some of us will actually be camping that weekend.

Yeah I already added them on Facebook. I like the club. I definitely will be checking out SMORR when I'm down there. Won't be able to do much around there until June though.

Live in Battlefield MO. Pretty much a part of Springfield. I drive a 2000 TJ I have owned since new. I lifted it 3" and put 32" tires on it. Favorite place to wheel and fish is Bull Shoals. There are directions how to get there on the what's up from Branson thread. This was taken of my Jeep there. And is the hardest steepest thing there. And easily bypassed. Stock jeeps will do fine there.

Live in Lebanon, MO, about an hour North of Springfield. Still come back to Springfield on a regular occasion. Awesome to see other Jeepers in the area.

Thanks for the input Majnoon!
