I'm in Missouri....away from you all in the Southeast bootheel corner, although raised in St. Louis County and travel there all the time.
I've been trying to get more Missourians to join my SMILE bunch. Brandi was there once, but I believe she left.
There is a google group for Missourians run by the owner of mydigitalmuse who is from St. Louis. I belive they may eventually have a gathering in St. Louis.
