4/7- 4/11/13 Branson Hike

Photos 

I finally have a date set for our hike in Branson--it will be from the evening of Sunday, Apr 7 until Thurs Apr 11. Right now I have only 2 people besides Walt & I who confirmed and several other maybes. I have a 3 bedroom cabin reserved but more are still available as of right now. The price on these cabins goes down when they aren't rented out within 30 days, and that is today so they may be gone in a day or two. 

The price will be somewhere between $60 and $75 per person for all 4 nights (the price depends on how many people will be sharing a cabin). If anyone is interested, they need to contact me at the email address or phone # in my signature line, ASAP.

Thanks,
