If there's anyone who would like to get together and day hike or backpack in Shawnee, just let me know. I'm sure we can work something out.
Whenever you can get free, just let me know. I'm actually heading to Ferne Clyffe State Park tomorrow, probably stay outside of the "pay to camp", just for one night. I really need to de-stress. I told my boss that I was getting to the breaking point a couple of weeks ago, and he's really be easy on me since then. I guess it shows. If you're interested, I also posted in the Missouri section about planning a thru hike of the Ozark trail this fall.
