Hubs and I don't golf, but our son does, as did my in-laws.  We were just talking about this, and Hubs pointed out that his parents played a couple times per week and walked the course with golf bags.  Our son did the same even when playing on the high school golf team.  We are Pt. Royale now, and I think it's required that you rent a cart to play.  I don't think you have the option of walking to play.

Maybe that ugly, abandoned place, Indian Ridge, on the way to Branson West would be a good place for it.

Just saw sasparilla in the general store.

Thanks, Shave!  It's also at the General Store.  While you're there, do not miss Earth Harp Collective and Harp and Hang Drum.  Silver Dollar City is lucky to be able to showcase their talent!  I can't wait to see them again next week.

Hubs and I went this afternoon and had a great time!  Honestly, didn't pay much attention to the construction...sorry!  The plan was to see William Close, Earth Harp dude, and leave, but the weather was perfect so we hung around.  And William Close?? Wow! That was beyond awesome!  Don't miss that show!  Also, the couple from France playing the harp and hang drum at the Gazebo was great!  We plan to go again next week and spend the day.  And, yes, they are still selling sarsaparilla!

Would it have anything to do with them purchasing Jet?

I remember her.  She was always very pleasant.  So sorry to hear of her passing.

Have you emailed customer service to ask about it?

No, haven't had time - busy moving!  But, I hope to be there next week, so I'll check it out.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Sarsaparilla gone???

Hubs and I took the lake hike over to the Belle and went into the gift shop for our usual Sarsaparilla.  It's gone! They no longer sell it! Sales clerk pointed to the root beer in the cooler and offered me one. It's not the same thing!  Then...I started thinking about the Coke signs all over the City.  Are they no longer selling it because of a contract with Coke?  Anyone see Sarsaparilla at the City?  This could be devastating....   :-[

What??? No more flag raising and Veteran recognition?  Is it just temporarily gone for Spring Break, or forever?

All of the above trips sound great!  Hubs and I are hoping to visit our son in D.C. a couple times this year, also. He wants to drive to tour Civil War battlefields; while, I don't mind that all, I'd rather fly to get there quicker!

Our trip is over!  Spent 9 days in Maui snorkeling and scuba diving (son).  We went up to Haleakala Crater before sunrise for the view, snorkeled Molokini with Maui Snorkel Charters, took a helicopter tour of W. Maui and Molokai, attended a luau on the beach, drove through the lava fields...spent the rest of the time at the beach, snorkeling various locations, pool time, beach time, watching whales, etc.  It was beyond awesome!

This happened to me on the Paddlewheel at the Landing.  I said no, also, and noticed they took a pic anyway as we walked away.  I asked why that happened and was told it was a legal issue to know who is boarding the boat in case of emergency.

Hubs and I took a walk to the Belle yesterday. I was surprised that it's taking on passengers so early as there couldn't have been more than 40-50 people boarding if that many.  Does it usually open this early? Loud country music playing in the open area.  It was much nicer without it. The gift shop was closed, but the drinks machines on the outside of the building were full and the umbrella lady was working.  The drinks are an eyesore (hubs commented before me about it), and the music is obnoxious. There's plenty of seating now and strings of Christmas lights hanging.  The Belle looks nice as always - top level now has chairs on it.  I hope the gift shop opens later as it was always a nice little shop.  We usually hike to the Belle and get a sarsaparilla. 

Random Talk / Re: Best route to KS from Branson
« on: February 19, 2017, 07:00:30 PM »
2 routes. 

some would say take 13 north to Clinton, then 7 to Harrisonville, the 49 north to K.C.  Catch 29 on the south side of KC, take you to airport...

Personally I would go to springfield, take james river west to 44, exit off of 44 on exit 57 (96 hiway). take it west to carthage, just east of carthage you can cut up north by truck stop and catch 49 (old 71),  roll straight north to KC, then catch 29 and into airport.

check google maps, you can see which route you prefer.

Thanks, Dune!  I was counting on you.  Hubs prefers going your way - I thought it would be longer.  He wins!
