Joplin MO here (South West corner). Would love to get together with some overlanders and learn about this new hobby.
Hey OzarkNewb, check out SpringMo Overland. We started a group up in January of this year and we do frequent trail runs as a group and get out often as individuals so you could tags along with someone. We’re based out of Springfield. Also there’s an overlanding shop in Springfield called Artemis Overland that two awesome guys run that sell anything from stoves and silverware to RTT’s. For anyone else whose just wanting to see the Ozarks there’s an event this Fall in Arkansas called Rendezvous in the Ozarks hosted by Natural State Overland, definitely check it out.

I had a blast out there this weekend, maybe a little too much. my tires are all wrecked and got a few battle scars and still have to drive 1000 miles home next week. I dont think it can handle 2 weekends in a row. haha

Just outside of STL, MO and just joined this group looking for like minded folk, that aren't into building beaters, just to destroy within a years time woods wheeling. Been there, and done with that.

I still hit the off road parks but mainly to test new mods and camp out. I started going to SMORR in 2008, and have watched the trails change from easy going to rock bouncer required. Moonlight is an easy going park for a day run, but if your mindful of paint, wait until late fall thru early spring. The overgrowth on the trails gets thick.

I prefer to head out west these days, and Ouray CO area in the San Juan Mtn's, is my absolute favorite destination. I would rather sacrifice all small local trips to be able to get out there once a year, and is what I have been building/gearing up for. My problem is finding others to travel with that far from home. Safety in numbers, on and off the road. I have made friends from all over the country doing these types of long distant trips, and we do meet up in places like Moab, Buena Vista, Silveton, and the likes every 2-3 years, but man that is one long and boring road trip to make solo. lol

With that said, my goals here on OB are this....

I would love to eventually be able to make these long distance travels with OB members from my area, and meet up with other members from other regions in NM/AZ/UT/CO, for some planned out trails and off grid camping.

I am building my adventure trailer now, and should be ready by next spring for it's maiden voyage. :)

Awesome idea! I’m in Springfield and would be down for that sort of meet up. I actually just got back from that area of Colorado three weeks ago and t was the best trip I’ve ever done.

@El Capitan Sounds great! We will work something out over time and make this happen eventually! Need to see when and where others are going here, and make a plan of action.

We are already planning for Ouray area late Aug 2020, but would like to get something going for April/May 2020 somewhere else. I need a shake down run or two on the new trailer when it's ready before the big trips. More than likely hit up SMORR early spring for that, and see how it does in the rains. LOL!

Didn't see how to quote a post properly here, until after I posted (reply). I'm still learning how this forum is ran, so forgive me as I do.
