Why Missouri is Not just a Fly Over State

What do you think of when asked about the state of Missouri?  A few years ago, all that would come to mind were the cities of St. Louis and Branson, but not much else.  It was a pass-through state to many other destinations for us, but never...

Great post! America has lots of great out of the way places worth exploring and I'd like to get to this one someday. I love to canoe and the Current River sure looks inviting. Is there a long stretch of the river you can paddle? Can you rent a canoe there?

Re: Why Missouri is Not just a Fly Over State

DangTravelers ·
The Current River is amazing. It's around 185 miles, but in the area we were (in Salem) they do canoe trips as long as 65 miles or so. There are multiple canoe rental places near there, doing everything from short 4 hour canoe trips to multi-day camping canoe trips as well.

Re: Madrid's Electric Bike Share Tops 50,000 Sign Ups

Very cool! As I contemplate getting my own bike back on the road, hills are one of the issues (aside from traffic) and I've even thought about one of these...great way to get around a city that's bicycle-friendly... I found a picture...they're like regular bikes, it seems, not like a Vespa, so probably easier to park, too.

I saw these electric bikes all over Tokyo and they are growing on me. Also, I've noticed foldable bikes everywhere I'm going. I'm wondering if we will big numbers of people packing those for travel in the near future.

Re: Madrid's Electric Bike Share Tops 50,000 Sign Ups

PHeymont ·
Given the weight and size restrictions on luggage, I think it’s more likely that we’ll see these for rent in a lot more places, rather than people taking their own along. Folding sounds nice…you can just take it to your room at night. Electric folding would be even better!

Re: When the weather gives you lemons, try an icecycle!

DrFumblefinger ·
When I first glimpsed your headline, I thought it would go something like this, "When the weather gives you lemons, eat yellow ice!" (which my mother always told me not to do as a boy!). Bikes are surprisingly popular in the winter, at least in Calgary. You can even get wider than usual studded snow- tires for them. Interesting story! thanks.

Re: Money Savings Tips, for your Big Trip - Part 1

DrFumblefinger ·
These are all good tips and add up to quite a bit of coin. I've also never had luck with renegotiating cable rates. But I did give up my coffee stop and just brew my own and take it along to work. Works fine for me. Looking forward to the rest of your tips. Thanks, Samantha!

Re: Money Savings Tips, for your Big Trip - Part 1

TravelingCanuck ·
Thanks Samantha. All great tips. Some we do now and some (public transit) we do not since we live outside Edmonton and both work in the city. A 15 minute commute would turn into over an hour on transit. We actually just redid our cable subscription, obtained a better plan and updated internet with a reduced monthly cost. With our kids now moved out we are able to save a good bit on our utilities, phone costs and especially food costs. All extra coin for the next trip.

Great tips.! Cable companies usually don't reward loyalty and offer their best promotional rates to new people. Netflix, Amazon Prime are good ways to save on cable bills if you can get internet. As far as eating out, I always find it's a question of what I order. I avoid drinks, desserts , and the cost is not bad at all.

Hi there Rob. Since I wrote this post we actually cut the cable and only have OTA and Netflix. Saves us over $100.00 a month. Nice amount to save for our travel adventures! And you are right about the drinks. That is what will kill you. Stay away from them and it should help. Thanks for the comments. Part 2 this week!
