    At first I thought it was OZ as in Australia but it’s summer there so it clicked.. North West Arkansas which is the Ozarks!

    Man I need a beer..

    You need a beer? I wanna get abbreviated!!!! Thanks for the clue, Corn.

    @Scotto, you can while some dim hours away looking for a suitable avatar. Because if you don't do it, someone will do it for you. :sneaky: With unpredictable results! o_O You can prolly garner some good winter empathy here...these poor SoCal'ers endured temperatures dipping into the 30s recently :rolleyes::cool:. Cheers!

    First things first. How do Arkansas mountain bikers pronounce “Arkansas”?

    I ask because there are so many different versions depending on where you are in the Lower 48 and until today, I had never communicated directly with a local.

    Arknsaw. At least, that's how the tow truck driver in Conway pronounced it (Cue "Dueling Banjos"...).

    Take my word for it. You do not want to break down there. Even with TN plates.

    Welcome @Scotto !
    Totally looking forward to some ride reports with some pics!
    I live at the bottom of Central California and these Hooligans here consider me in Canada, so no telling where they are going to place you...:rolleyes:

    Stick around, this is a pretty good place. Did you just find us or have you been lurking for a while...:)

    Hey well I'm not that good at geography either...lol.
    Working 6days a week, daylight to dark through the winter leaves little daylight to ride so I'm building an enduro bike for my nephew, going to tubeless carbon hoops on the wife's bike and received a new frame and fork for my daughters new ride just this afternoon. The bike stant is busy today... Everyone is smiling though... New gear for the New Year! Glory to God!
    Just found this forum today! Though I'd dive in! Appreciating the welcome from y'all!

    Welcome to the nuthouse @Scotto. This is the best little mtb forum EVER! You appear to fit right in immediately. My condolences.

    You mentioned Fruita. I was there yesterday - here's what it looked like:
    Kokopelli in Fruita.JPG

    Bluebird skies and about 28° at noon. Poor Grinch was no match for T Rex!

    65° in Laguna today. Sorry. Had to add that in to pile up on your Ozark Mt. Misery. Or are you in Broome, NWA?

    Welcome to the machine Scotto. We did a family vacation last summer in the Ozarks (we were in Branson when the duck boat sank). I'd guess there would be some good mountainbiking in the area by the looks of it. But not sure if Winter cold is any worse than the summer humidity!

    I knew I recognized that MO attitude :thumbsup: Born and raised in St Louis, many generations of family and friends throughout the state. Family had a weekend country place just down the road from Crane's outside of McKittrick/Hermann. Just sold it a year or so ago.
