Bah, photos want to go sideways. No photos to share.

Future reference: there's another decent firearms museum at the College of the Ozarks, just outside Branson.

Hanz,

Any updates as you travel through?  

I have a business in Chesterfield, a home in Dardenne Prairie and a farm in pike county.  

I fled the socialists state of ILL in 2008, to get out before Obama got in.

I can't accurately describe how pretty some parts of Missouri are.  I stumbled across the Blackjack Access Conservation Area in Saint Clair County and stopped at a little overlook before you hit the river.  Very pretty and peaceful.  Rolling pasture with scattered patches of trees and creeks.

I've only looked at a couple of places and I think I'm being too picky for someone with my budget in this fast paced market.

Oh, I don't know what it is between JP Morgan Chase Bank and Missouri but it's not the bank to use if you're in Missouri for sure.  Very few branches.  I did end up driving to Kansas City for one so at least I had an excuse to get some barbecue at Joe's.

I have been enjoying the process and I'm really looking forward to getting settled and riding my motorcycle around.

I wish I could post an update with more substance but I haven't been to productive.

We live just a little south of there in Cedar County, near Stockton. We like the rolling terrain in this area. As far as banking, we use US Bank. We banked with them when we lived in Illinois and were pleasantly surprised to find that they also serve this area.

Thank you for the recommendation.

Very nice terrain for sure.

My wife and I are reconning the western counties to put us closer to KC.  We'll probably land roughly between Bolivar and Clinton.

We grew up not far northwest of Ava.

Here's a favorite spot in the Gasconade River in Wright County -

Since you're shopping, I have to recommend a drive from Washington to Hermann on H. 100, then west of Hermann on 100 to Jeff City.  With some side trips into the hills along the way.

I live in St. Charles County and I'm starting to believe this is one of the premier locations in the country for quality of life.  The county park system is incredible and getting better every year, and the cities are adding their own improvements.  It won't be long until the greenways connect for biking that can't be beat.  We even have an astronomy park.

The downside is the cost of real estate here, although it's no higher than Columbia or regions near the lakes.  The county votes reliably Republican.

In any case, I'm fond of Missouri.

I replied to your post but it got lost in space.

Beautiful area but, unfortunately, out of my budget.

I've camped in a couple of state parks and I have to say Missouri does a great job of running and maintaining them.

I'm pleased to report that I'm under contract for about 10 acres of woods in Buffalo, MO.  I expect to close the first week of August.

The place is on gravel and outside of city limits.  Springfield is about 35 minutes away.

I hope I'm not jinxing myself when I say I'm pretty excited.

You'll be about 35-40 minutes from all sorts of stuff. Trout fishing in Lebanon. Sailing on Lake Stockton. A bit farther to all the swells at the Lake of the Ozarks. Truman Lake is nearby, too.

Thanks.  Being from Long Island, I have to realize I don't have a huge bottleneck in my way of (NYC) to go most places.   I'm looking forward to exploring on a motorcycle and riding until I'm lost and then falling back on the GPS to get me home.

I'm now a MO property owner

Closed on the property today but couldn't get my MO driver's license because I didn't have my Social Security Card.  At first my disappointment made me but then I realized that means illegal aliens can't get a MO DL and I was back to

Anyone have a recommendation for an Internet Service Provider besides Starlink in Dallas County?  My cellular service is pretty thin here.

Since you haven't done it yet, I suggest taking whatever you need to get a Real ID.
