    We hosted several runs in Disney, OK years ago.

    I believe you posted up on Pirate about fab shops in the Springfield area and I let you know about www.adamikoffroad.com

    Also, there is SMORR Offroad Park, not sure of a link.

    I am from the Capital City Crawlers out of Central MO and we wheel at www.flatnasty.net Flat Nasty Offroad Park.

    I live in Columbia, MO which is about 2.5 hours from you, so if you are up for a drive or want to ride on one of our runs - we are going to FN in April.

    Oh well,

    Actually, one of these days I'll be moving to SW of Springfield. My brother retired from the USAF last Sep & already moved to Mount Vernon area. I visted for a month last Nov & loved the area. Whenever I've had enough contract work in the Middle East, it's inevitable that I'll move there as well. Already looking at investment property/rental houses.

    Who knows. I'll be there for two weeks starting on 28 Jun. As a big race fan, I plan on spending most of my time either at the races or working on my brothers car. Let me know if anyone from the area wants to get together for a beer or something. email me at BurbLover@gmail.com

    I'm from midwest Missouri. Never heard of Disney OK either, but it sounds worth the drive. Any places in Missouri to actually wheel? I've had my fair share of bad encounters with the Mississippi river banks.

    and if you live near joplin, i dont have to tell you about Snowball, which is wasteland, private property, but the cops dont hand out tickets because the owners never show up in court.
