I love reading your enthusiasm for our home state of Missouri. It seems when people travel or ask about places to travel, they are headed for the boundaries: Up North; the Gulf, the East Coast, the West Coast, ...and beautiful Missouri is just another 300 miles or so to get through in order to get to the real delights. You've lingered long enough to sample and savor. Thanks for the reminders about this lovely region ~G

Steelville has a great set of resorts for float trips once the weather warms up a bit. You are right about the mowing. We got in from camping at Cuivre River State park in Troy, MO today, and I am dreading the mow before we roll out to da rally!

If you are in Jackson then you are very close to Missouri's oldest covered bridge. What a great photo op this would make.

I live in Jackson, MO and it is a great place live. Suprised you didn't head on down to Trail Of Tears State Park right on the river too. Cape Girardeau isn't too far down the road. A few winerys around and other things to do. Good luck Kingfisher, Journey on.

Rain drops keep fallin on my head

Here in Jackson, Mo...a very nice Cherokee Hills campground....we travel not knowing where we are going??? so we just throw darts at a map and pick a spot and then explore the area...sometimes traveling 500 miles around the area we park in...we visit all the state parks in an area and sometimes move from where we are to a state park or some other place in the area....

There seems to be quite alot to explore in this area...the rain won't stop us but it will get us wet

Elephant Rocks...reminds me of Joshua Tree Np and its Jumbo Rocks

We are hosting a rally near Elephant Rocks S.P. in June since it is such a nice area. Check out Big Creek RV park in Annapolis, MO and let us know how it is!

See you in a few days at the rally.

It's right on Main Street, in the original downtown area. We're still working towards that but as you can see from our avatar, we in the San Francisco bay area. We'll be in Siloam Springs in May to celebrate our niece's graduation.

Enjoy your trip, we're a little envious!
I have lived in Siloam Springs all my life. Well, except for a few interludes.

I have always wondered who the “folks from CA" were that owned the place on Main Street. Funny we should meet here.

It is a great place to live, and lots of things to see and do.

Some would question the real benefit of the Waltons and Clintons. They have each taken their share of the benefits in return for any good they may have offered.

Enjoy your travels, Mt. View is a nice spot. The Arkansas Unit has had several rallies there.

Best Regards,

Jeff,

That's us. Small world isn't it? We also think that our nieces and nephews (the Tisdales) may know Remi and Hunter based on their Facebook walls.

Jeff, are you the fire chief of Siloam Springs?

We hope to meet you someday.

All the best,

picture of the Hodgson gist mill outside of gainesville, Mo...it is for sale...240 acres, wo houses, the mill, springs and part of bryant creek....I want to live there but need 2 million more US dollars
I grew up just a few miles from Hodgson Mill, and have lots of nice memories about the mill when it was in operation. Also a great hang-out at the time for teens in the area. Thanks for sharing. $2.00 million huh. I seem to recall when they were asking $250,000 and us locals thought that was hilarious. My how things change.

Sorry it took me a little while to get back to you on the time frame of the $250,000 sale price on the mill. Had to ask my Dad. It was actually further back than I thought. Dad said, before his time of course, that Mr. Hodgens had first sold the mill for $10,000. That was probably 100 years ago. The $250,000 price tag was probably in the late 50's or early 60's. Sounds like you guys are having a great trip. I wish you continued safe, and interesting, travels.
