Wishlist Wednesday

Afternoon, folks! Happy to have you back here for yet another edition of Wishlist Wednesday, where we dream together of places we want to go. I have yet to have any suggestions from the viewers (I say that like there are so many of you). So be sure and join in the conversation and let me know of a Missouri place you want to go. If you don’t want to go someplace in Missouri (you probably have the wrong site first of all), you can tell us that too. We’ll take it. I’m not so closed minded that I think we’re going to be doing Missouri travel exclusively! As a matter of fact, next month we’re taking a much needed vacation to Gulf Shores and I’m gonna tell you all about that anyway.

This week I got an email telling me awesome news that I knew nothing about and think we should be more proud of. Did you know that Missouri was rated best state for camping from about.com? Me neither! I am surprised we haven’t heard more about this. You would think that there would be advertisements, announcements, words from State Park folks, even words from the Governor! But alas, it’s just I, Pan, The Gravel-Roadin’ Guru, filling your head with all these fun facts.

So, in light of this new found knowledge, I am dedicating today’s Wishlist Wednesday to Missouri State Park camping. Which I have have an itch to get out and do since our early approach of Missouri spring weather (although it’s flubbed that up this week and brought the cold back). I need some outdoorsy time. Time to relax and step away from the rigamarole of the same thing day in and day out. What better way to do that than get your gear packed and head for the hills where there is no tv, no laundry, and no Internet (unless you’re one of those crazy-insane people who can’t live without your Internet, which I am quickly becoming myself) to constantly provide distractions.
