Southwest Ozark Mountains. Springfield, Branson are the big cities that are closest.

If I'm ever drunk in Cali, I now know don't get on a bike.

Just a few days ago, on Saturday night, there was a bar in Hollywood (Ca) where most of the patrons would get liquored up and ride their bikes home. Because of all the previous accidents recently, the California Highway Patrol set up a checkpoint for these bicyclists, and invited the press to watch this. When the dust settled, they arrested 20 bicyclists for being under the influence, and impounded their bikes. Sometimes the CHP gets out of control, but there must have been a reason for this madness.
