Okay who is going camping with me?

Comment by Serafin on September 13, 2014 at 10:08am

I have always been fascinated by nature, bushcraft, and pretty much anything outdoors. I had some bad experiences in the past with wildlife and have become a bit jumpy in the woods. I have a four year old daughter who is really enthusiastic about hiking and camping, but I find that having her around has only amplified my fears. Instead of enjoying a trail, I end up stressed the whole time about snakes, spiders, and any other manner of creature that could hurt her; I even had a nightmare that we were tent camping and I woke (in my dream) to find her being dragged into the woods. (I have always had extremely vivid dreams.) It also didn't help that I walked right past a cottonmouth not long ago and she ended up just a few feet from it.

So what it comes down to is that I am finding it difficult to find a good balance of caution vs. adventure.

Humm..sorry about that.

KC= Kansas City

MO= Missouri

I know bush craft but don't really don't know a whole lot about river travel. I have a few charts but the sand can change at any time making anything other then a flat bottom boat hard to navigate. Good thing is that they dredge the Missouri river often so with the most current charts it's possible, bad thing is that the river is very,very low right now due to not enough rain. Unless your talking about using a canoe or kayak then that's a different story altogether, but would be a hell of a trip!

Mark I have no idea what your abbreviations are but on the subject of bushcraft and river boat trips I know of a couple ( husband and wife ) who built a raft from 24 gallon drums old timber pellets an old tin shed steering consisted of a road pulley system that had a big polly pipe steering wheel and the sails were discarded car dust covers . To my knowledge they sailed up and down the Murray river for over two years .

I to would like to do the MO. river to the gulf. I was thinking of doing a short trip this summer from KC. MO. to Columbia, MO.(were I live) just to see how it went. I had a buddy that built his own house boat and did the whole trip you talking about in 3 months. I'm big into bush-craft but a bit out of practice, hehe.

Hi all,

I am an experienced camper, mainly backpacking and hoping to find some kindred souls here. I am currently trying to decide on a bucket list epic trip the AT or a trip down the Missouri to the Mississippi to the gulf. Any input?
