Spent the weekend at the Ranch in southern MO. 6500 acres of mild to wild trails and water crossings. The stock RZR will go through 26" of water. Just don't stop forward travel! Met a ton of RZR owners. They really are the best guys on the trail. Seems like just one RZR owner riding with a group of 10 other ATV's makes the whole lot of them friendly and interesting. I wonder why that is? As a group, we decided to take on a trail that was we hillbillys call a level 5. It is a combination of factors. Steepness, traction issues, width, rocks, water, tree limbs etc. Definately would not want to tackle one on your own. If you break, you're done. But with 11 other guys and gals, you can relax knowing these guys will stick together to get 'er done. I only got a few pics of the rough stuff, cause I couldn't hold onto the camera and a beer and the steering wheel all at the same time. Something had to go, so it was the camera.

Are you camping this weekend? We try to stay down at Wilder. PM me sometime and we'll try to hook up for a ride. I hope they get a light shower up there this Thursday to settle the dust some. Most of the ranch Roads got ridden pretty hard making the dust bad. We rode mostly moderately difficult trails that don't see the higher speeds, so they were OK dust wise.
Sure is a cool place with something for everyone!

Cloud 9 Ranch. Are the ranches in Missouri the same as the ones here in Nevada? I haven't heard of one here that has trails to ride. You lucky devils! You do have some awesome country back there. I bought my vette in Poplar Bluff and kinda wanted to just stay there for awhile.

Where, exactly, is Cloud 9 Ranch?
It is in a little town called Caulfield. That is about 125 miles southeast of Springfield MO, or about 30 miles west of West Plains MO.
This is one of those places you dream about. They have their own fire dept, rangers for general law enforcement (which amounts to nearly no intervention unless it is absolutely necessary) 600? full service campsites a store, restaurant, adult clubhouse with wifi, fitness center, great cell service, gas station laundrymat, pools, tennis, shooting range & tons of stuff for the kids etc. It is really our own private town. Once you leave that area, you descend into your own little world of trails that suit everyone's skill level.
I've been to a lot of riding areas, and this is by far and away the coolest place there is for the family. I only live 45 miles away, so it is a breeze to load up and just go for the day. My brother was in from Reno last weekend, and we camped up there with my son. We couldn't leave the place on Sunday evening, 'cause we all knew we had to return to reality when we did. WOW!
Everytime we go, we meet a new group of people, from locals to far-awayers. Everyone is so laid back and relaxed that you just can't help but have a really good time.

Heck of a drive for a Vette! Did you come from Nevada for it? My brother lives in Reno, and flew here just to ride (DRIVE) the RZR in the hill country here. Poplar Bluff is Nothing like the Ozark Mountain Area. That is aluveal delta country, this is mild to wild hills & streams. Like I said, I've been a lot of places, and this does not disappoint in anyway.
This particular place is a private member owned "Ranch". They do offer and promote horseback riding as well as ATV sports. In my lowly opinion, I feel many families have shifted to the ATV lifestyle, as it offers a lot more high spped excitement. And I think owning a RZR instead of a horse is probably cheaper in the long run! I'll throw a few more pics just to soothe you desert riders.:ride:

Awwwwwww, Man, I'm eatin my heart out here. That looks and sounds absolutely wonderful!
Yeah, I flew into St. Louis and they came and picked me up and took me down to Poplar Bluff. I drove it home from there, quite a trip, floods, rain, more floods and then snow all the way from Buffalo, WY to SLC, UT. They say vettes don't work in the snow. They're wrong. Even if I would have wrecked the pucker power would have held me in the seat. Kinda like drivin a RZR...... only not as much fun, heh, heh. Since I retired the wifey and I have been looking at real estate around Rodgers, Belle Vista and Bentonville, AR. We just might get a bit closer to your awesome riding.
Thanks for the info, quite enlightening, I must say.

Caulfield, just looked it up on the map, I was almost there on my way home from Poplar Bluff. I went through W. Plains on the way back, then up through Springfield. My original plan was to go over to Belle Vista and that area to see some of the homes we had listings for. The weather canceled out that idea. Wow, the Ranch is really close to where we want to be! Hell, I'd a gone right through Caulfield, I'll bet.
