I was only in town for less than an hour, long enough to pull into Grand Country and eat my lunch alone then cruise up and down the strip.  It was interesting to see what restaurants were open and which were closed.  One thing that surprised me was there appeared to be quite a few cars at the Titanic.  Lot was not packed but certainly more than I expected.  By contrast there were no cars at the wax museum.  Not even sure if it was open or not.  While I was in the GC, I heard one of the workers talking to somebody saying that they had shows going in there all year long while other shows are shut down this time of the year.  I thought about driving out to the City and cruising thru but figured all I would see was an empty parking lot, so I didn't.  I put in quite a few miles yesterday driving from Nowata, OK up to Springfield, down to Harrison with the quick stop in Branson, then back up to Springfield, then to Bixby OK (south of Tulsa) then back to Nowata (1 hour north of Tulsa)  560 miles total.

Thats right.  GC (grand country) shows do run all year, 
Altough do they take a well deserved week off in Jan, and Aug. 
Other than that it is shows and business as usual every day, 7 days a week, 3 or 4 shows every day

Grand Country is sold out tonight.  It's also Area Appreciation.  Are they usually sold out? Titanic is closed today for a private event.  Fritz' Adventure has packed parking lots.  I needed to hit two stores today, and they are both closed and posting winter hours. Both of them have limited Sat. hours and closed on Sundays.  You'd think they'd be open weekends and closed during the week.

I was in the area today for work so I decided to take a little detour and cruise the strip.  It was a ghost town, but even at that, still got stuck behind somebody going about 20mpg.  I dont know why people suddenly forget how to drive once they get out there.  I ate lunch at the Grand Country and there were about 2 other people in there with me.

How many here remember when 76 was the only road, and those bumper stickers on the front of local cars that said, "I'M A BRANSON NATIVE AND I'LL HELP YOU TURN LEFT!"

And they would stop so that you could.
