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:

Is this an update of the "Missouri Ozark|

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.

There have been quite a few "updates" of the original book by OZ Hawksley.

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.
