    SMORR

    Heading to SMORR is a couple weeks with the JJ group. Never been there.

    Any particular trails to hit ? Rocker Knocker, V Notch, Log Jam, Rocky Road, Black Mamba ?

    Looking for a mix of technical stuff and trail riding

    Tons, locked and 37’s if it make a big difference.

    Staying in Seymour, there is a messican restaurant there. That any good or other places to eat ?

    The Jambo’s might not everyone’s style but I like being lead around and not having to think where the hell do I go now and shit. For the most part they feed you and if you break they haul your ass off the trails.

    People and park are great. You've named all the trails, v notch and rocker knocker will dent your sheet metal.

    Full disclosure, last time I was there was 10 years ago. If you have time, hit up Flat Nasty for a weekend. Another great park with great owners.

    Moon in the Boonies was always one of my favorite events.

      Smorr is great. They give you a map and all the trails are rated 1-6. You should be able to do everything but some 6s. Some trails are harder than they are rated for I think it's been a while since they have been labeled. For example Colt 45 is rated a 4 but if its wet I cant get up that hole midway up. Wheelbase can make a big difference there too. Brandon the owner is a good guy and the bathroom/showers are clean even though I dont use them if I tent camped I wouldn’t hesitate.
      Safety Third!

        SMORR is on my list to hit soon. I've heard good things.

          Used to go there a bunch from when it was new. I haven’t been in around four years now. They made even more improvements in the camping - hotel cabins in the last couple years. Two of the more difficult trails we used to do are closed now. They were the most extreme trails there.

            IIRC your from the East Coast.
            Be at AOAA end of July if that’s anywhere near you

              I live just outside of Kansas city, mo. SMORR is only about 3 hours from me, but the ZJ is not ready to wheel yet...

                I hit smorr a couple times a year. waggnoneer hill is fun. with 37's and tons you can hit copperhead, double whammy, larrys hill, rocky road, and really anything you want. Most trails are easily walkable before you commit. jeep jamborees suck you'll wheel one trail and stand around talking about the pebble they spotted you over. Those events tend more to be about the "lifestyle" than actual wheeling. If you're feeling rowdy check out a trail called cheap trick. it is always a good time.

                  Can’t argue that the JJ’s can be a PITA. Have found if you sign up for the harder trails it tends to weed out most of the traction control/hill descent folks.

                  Driving 12 hours to an unknown place there is comfort knowing that you’re going to have a guide that knows his way around. I Try to hit the less popular events so the day isn’t spent waiting for others.

                  Cheap Trick ? I’ll keep that in mind and see if it can be run. Even if it’s a rouge group. 👍👍

                    Maybe a Southeast IBB wheeling extravaganza is in order?

                    I'd be down.

                      One of my favorite parks. You can pretty much hit all of the hard stuff there in a day no problem if it isn’t all traffic jams

                        Been there countless times. You can't go wrong with any trail there. All the 4s should be doable for you, and some 5s.

                        The Mexican Restaurant is good. There's a grocery store in the center of town. I haven't tried the new BBQ restaurant right on the highway yet. Other than that there's McD, Subway, and Casey's.

                          I understand the JJ hate. I've been to some, but they kick me out now if I'm truthful on the application. Our club is the spotters if you go to the Byrd's adventure center. We put on an event as a club to benefit local charities and their organization is something we are trying to learn from. It really is a well run event even if the wheeling can feel a bit "monitored."

                            I'm actually a Trail Guide for the event. We live about 40 minutes from there and go all the time. You will be VERY impressed with the park and facilities (everyone is with their first trip). Tuns, 37's & locked you will love these trails. Plenty more. The Mex place is good, so is the Rusty Spur ('family style', great breakfast...). Look me up when you arrive, Red '05 LJ on tuns & old 39 stickies, hangin out in a (old) 37' Coachman Sport Coach

                              ATM planning on getting into Seymour Tuesday afternoon. Will be looking for lunch/dinner on a couple of the days., Mex and Rusty Spur I’ll hit up for sure.

                              Will drop the trailer and YJ at the park Weds. and commute to the hotel.

                              Red LJ on 39 stickies hanging in a Coachman, got it.

                              I'm on the FB page also.

                              Thanks, looking forward to meeting the”crew”.
