  Paddlers Who Enjoy MO Rivers

Just found out this is back in print with new maps, so I'm ordering one. I have no idea how many I've went through over the years, but it's a good little river guide:

Waterways" by Oz Hawksley, that I bought back in '73? It was very carefully done, with river maps and info by mile, but no foolishness like color pictures.

When Pete et al, Boyscout, and I did that stretch of the Current on the way home from the Northfork last fall, I stopped by Aker's Ferry and picked up two copies of that very book. I was going to send one off to Pete and forgot all about it till just now. I even got a mailing envelope, set them down together, made a phone call, and put the phone book on top of them. Didn't think about it again till now.

Thanks for the reminder. Now I guess I'll have to venture out in the cold and go to the post office - or wait till spring...

There have been quite a few "updates" of the original book by OZ Hawksley.
The one that is out now is simply the latest update.
Which is not to say it is not better than the original, or previous updates.
It is better, but you may have to look quite closely to realize what some of the updates are.

  Got mine!

Our problem is that Bonnie really likes rivers that are clear and there aren't many close to KC here. The Ozarks rivers are great, but they're about a 5 hour drive. Hmmmm.
  Yeah, I'm Spoiled

One is about 2-3 miles as the crow flies, or 10 minutes away. And the Current, Jacks, Black, St. Francis, Big Creek, and Eleven Point are all close by.
  Yeah, that's the dream

Please tell me how I can pull this off and keep the Mrs. happy down there in creek bum paradise? A decent public library system with a regional book share would get me halfway there.
