Thanks, for the replies. Speaking of the Buffalo, I am planning a trip there, next year. I've heard it's the best float/fish river in the Ar/Mo Ozarks.

We been thinking about moving to N NW Ark. Checking out few areas. Went through Branson several years back. I forgot about all those hills! My wife and I actually wants to move in a hilly/mountainous area. And with at least 4 seasons. We live in S. Louisiana and are "flatlanders". Definitely want a new scenery!!!

Getting old can't handle the hills like I use to

Here's the last picture that will ever be taken by my wife's camera. Somewhere along the Buffalo. RIP NIkon, drowned too soon.

Nice pic - the potential for water damage looks very...real in that picture.

Where are charming natives?? They are pretty clannish.
I just see the locals who love guns, beer, mudding and do drugs. Lot of meth here too. Plus if your things are not chained down, you might lose them.
If you are out of state...don't move here unless you are a better shot than they are. Seriously. They have a lot of practice yearly.
I'd move but hubby is not in shape to and doesn't want to.
I will eventually.
I love the land, not the people.

Wow, that's too bad. We love it here and have met wonderful people. Hope it gets better for you.

Some slight measure of truth, very slight, but mostly bung! If it was really that way, this former cop would have left. Still here and loving it.

I agree. Like a roller coaster at a theme park, but bigger!
