If I can I will try to explore Wright and Texas Counties next weekend if I have some extra time. Wright and Texas counties are in south-central Missouri and are east of the Springfield area and surrounded by portions of the Mark Twain National Forest. Both of these counties in Missouri are rural and have been experiencing increases in population while non-farm employment has decreased. If I go I will plan to talk with local business owners, long-time residents, and newer arrivals to the area. Also, I will try to visit as many of the local stores as well.

Sounds like your headed for borderline Arkansas counties of Missouri. Can already tell you that you're gonna feel like you're in the true South in those counties. That area of Missouri has a true Southern culture, very different from the rest of the state.

Well, these counties are located fairly far to the south in Missouri, but they are not the southern Missouri counties that border Arkansas!

True, I am mistaken. They're not at the border of Arkansas, but certainly are in "Lower Southern Missouri." In any case, if I have time I'll try and visit those counties since most are about 2 hours to the south of me.
