Aardeng. What part of Missouri are you?  I’m from Kansas and have been living in Bates county, MO for a couple of years now.  My property I’m getting is in Bourbon County, KS.  I’ve got several pretty flat cleared acres, a lot of timber and the little Osage River running along my property.  Can’t wait for it to be mine, just waiting on closing.

I’ll camp fairly primitively at first while I’m getting started.  I’m going to get a good feel of the place before I build much that cannot be moved easily.  It’s definitely a blank slate.
