Have a planned ride in late September to the Lake of the Ozarks area in MO, along with stops at Anamosa, IA, Hannibal, MO, Branson, MO and the Gateway Arch.

Problem is: one of the guys going along is presently at the HOG Rally in Wausau, Wi right now and just zapped me a cautionary e-mail that he spoke with some riders recently returned from that area.

Said the stench from Tyson Chicken farms so bad, you can't decently enjoy the region.

Anyone out there with personal experience of the area??

Thanks - Kevin
