Why aren't you here?
Looking at the start list for the Tour of Missouri (TOM) http://www.tourofmissouri.com/start-list.html you need to ask yourself that question. Some of the highlights for today's stage near KC are: Hincapie, Cavendish, Nibali, Vande Velde, Farrar (hell all of TSL), Tuft, Jacques-Maynes, Creed, Dominguez, Vogels, O'Bee, Pipp, Bajadali, and Huff just to name a few.
We are camped out in Branson to catch the end of tomorrow's stage in Springfield and the hilly time trial here in Branson. This town can't help but make you feel young. I'm looking forward to getting some great shots with my new D90. Time to look for a route along the Shepherd of the Hills highway, should be challenging.
