Return trip to the Irish Wilderness in Missouri; spend a day and a half along the Eleven Point river fishing for small mouth bass. Then I'd like to do a summer 3 or 4 day hike with my son who recently started backpacking with me.
Next, I'm intent on taking each of my children on an over nighter, one by one.
Finally, I want to do some hiking with some new friends I've met here on the forum. Until recently I've always, fished, hunted, and hiked along with the noted exception of my children but I've enjoyed the few hangs I've been on with some of the guys on the forum.
I doubt it'll be in 2013 but I would like to do a special hike in some really neat looking place like out west in the mountains or possibly to the South East in the Smokies. I've seen the pictures many of you have posted and those places look so great. Don't get me wrong, I love Missouri but the view is pretty much the same where ever you go in the state.
