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.
Thank you to Bob and Stanley in Myrtle, Missouri for your friendship and hospitality. I'll not soon forget Southeast Missouri's very unique LGBT scene.
