    I'm with you Chris, Jr , and Frank lets get this gathering to happen at Merritt. Talk to all your buddies on the MO and get them to chime in and vote it up. You guys can all truckpool together and make it cheaper and bring some eastern fun people out this way.

    if we could pull a bunch of boats with 1 truck i'd be up for a car pool i'm sure chris would bring his and i would too:wink: be kinda nice with more than 1 or 2 boats.... i'm sure i could fish 3 people out of my boat driftin... it will be a new thing for me.. guess i might have to get the trolling motor up and going:cool2:

    I'd leave my boat at home but I need to know that I have a seat in someone else's boat. I'll have the camper so that would save my family a lot of gas money if I didn't have to pull the boat up there to.

    I got married the weekend that we were supposed to do the MO river mini that's why I didn't make it. But congrats Chris and I hope you guys are as happy as Chrissy and I are.
