In a continued search for places to consider for early retirement, the Ozark region has popped up on my radar for no other reason than wooded national forest land, less expensive real estate, and at least somewhat less frozen than areas to the north in the winter months. Wondering how how the riding, and recreation in general, is down there. I like to ride dirt, anything from single-track to dirt roads. Also into mountain biking, fishing, hiking. Any specific towns or areas that are better than others? .
