When I was serving in The U.S.A.F. in Illinois about a year after my wife and I got married. I decided we would take a fishing honeymoon trip to Mo. (Notice I said I decided) My wife had not fished before or probably since.
We stayed at a small resort on Bull Shoals Lake. The lake was fairly undeveloped. We decided to take a trip to Branson. The highlight of Branson at that time was Marvel Cave and Silver Dollar City which was in the very early stages. Basically nothing in Branson. We drove by Table Rock Lake but didn't stop.

The year 9/11 occurred we had reservations in Branson to celebrate our anniversary Oct 1st. After all that occurred on 9/11 and some family health issues, I cancelled the reservations. I cannot even begin to fathom the changes that have occurred since 1967.

After making my wife sit in a boat for a week, it's hard to imagine we are still married 51 yrs. later.

To all of you going to Branson, I wish you the best and am sure you will have a wonderful time. I've been to 4 National Conventions and had a great time at each one. If I was going to Branson I could take the 17ft. boat in my garage (which hasn't seen water for 3 years and currently won't run) if it was running. When running, it is a fantastic fishing boat. Best wishes to all of you and have a great time. Jon Kring
