Good trout fishing at Bennet Springs there in Lebanon, Mo!
If the Corps had sent me to duty like that I would have thought that I died and went to heaven! ---lol

I had a piece of land one minute from the entrance to the park.
My kids grew up on week-ends at the stream.
Sold the land years ago and the kids have grown up of course.
It still draws me. Was there last may.
Good retirement plan!
