    Does anyone have any insights as to where one could go to get a little 4wd fun out of their system?? I'm a 'true offroading' virgin and wouldn't mind knowing if there is anywhere to go to get my feet wet, so to speak.

    Head a little farther east of Branson and you're smack dab in the middle of Mark Twain Nat. Forest. Free four wheelin' fun for every one. Just grab a map (or not) and explore.

    True dat.. but I'm unsure about what passes as acceptable, what isn't, and would hate to get anywhere and get stuck. :)

    Mark, I don't supposed you could PM me a website or webpage about the event, if there is one?

    Thanks for the update!

    We spend a lot of time down there on 4 wheelers and all legal trails are marked with a brown fiberglass
    floppy post thing with a number on it, some even tell you how long the trail is.As for getting stuck, get a buddy with a 4wd to go with you, or just be very cautious if you go alone. I used to go by my self quite a bit back in the good old toyota days and never had a problem. I used reverse A LOT.

    I was stationed about 130 miles nort east of Branson. I was only there for a short time but we found plenty of trails off the 17. Hope this helps, it's been a few years so I don't remember any towns but there were a lot of them. On a side note, I had my first taste of well water out there.
