Sieg's MO-AR Rocky Tracks = "The SMART ride" Here's the rundown. It's 200 plus miles per day for 2 days. Starts and ends at Bixby MO., stopping at Mammoth Springs AR. for the night. Friday night and Sunday night if you want, camping at MTRA's club grounds, near Bixby, they have primitive camping, johns with sinks and flush toilets, and a shower, a RV dump station and a well or there is a motel in nearby Viburnum. More info on MTRA here> http://www.ridemtra.com/index.htm The course is gravel and old two track forest roads, very very little paved road. Many creek crossings and lot's of lesser traveled, poorly maintained roads. It will all be rideable by an average rider on a GS or KLR, but still a lot of fun on a plated dirt bike. (IMHO) As on the PHBR, there may be some bonus big boy, not big bike sections. There are motels and campgrounds in and around Mammoth Springs, I'll check them out and give a recommendation later. If someone has a favorite let me know. The date is set at August 16, 2014. It will be like my Pucky Huddle Breakfast Run, or the famous Swinging Bridges Ride, but I think there may actually be less paved road on this than either of those. More details to follow, I'll edit updates to this post as I get them. BTW > If anyone is interested, this year's PHBR will be run on September 20, it will start at Bixby and runs to Ste. Genevieve then back this time. UP-DATE: 6/29 I checked motels and campgrounds this week. Motel, I'll be staying at the Mammoth Springs Lodge Motel, and recommend that. I've stayed there many times through the years, it's clean, good management, has a fair breakfast and a large lounge/lobby for us to socialize. Their regular rate is $89.99 but if you mention "the smart ride" you get a double for $69.99 or single for $59.99. They would only let me block 10 rooms, so you may want to get one early if you are staying there. (3 gone already) Camping, I think Spring River Oaks is the best bet. They have tent camping and cabins. If you want a cabin or a site with electricity reserve early, non-electricity not a issue. They don't care how many on a site, it's $9.00 per person. Friday plenty of camping at MTRA's ground but motel rooms in Viburnum are limited. For those coming to the club grounds: It's pack it in, pack it out, we don't have trash service and we appreciate it you don't put cans and things that don't burn in the fire pit. There is a community fire ring, a pavilion and grill, and usually some charcoal, and always some wood. Also some smaller fire rings through the campgrounds.
