Thank you to all of my family -- aunts, uncles, cousins, and their significant others -- for a fun time near and around St. Louis, Missouri! Between cleaning up after the monster mud run, banding steer balls, and dodging suicidal carp, I'm worn out!
Thank you to my cousin Spencer and his dear wife Heather in Union, Missouri for a place to stay and for all of your help with my motorbike!
Thank you to Aunt Rhonda and Uncle Al for the great meals and evenings by the fire! John and Stephanie -- hanging out with you was great! I wish you and your growing family the best!
Thank you to David and Christine in Republic, Missouri. Your home-grown vegetables and self-caught venison were fantastic! The horse ride, which I haven't done in twenty years, put a smile on my face!
Thank you to Herc in Springfield, Missouri for such an awesome backyard micro-beer garden experience. It was fun to meet a few of you who terrorized Missouri as young adults with my dad.
