    No kidding? I live only about 15 minutes from Offutt AFB. When I get back from my current deployment, we'll figure something out.

    Yeah, I hear you on the water level. Those floods ate up Rt. 159 and Rt. 111 really quickly. Thankfully, my farm sits just up the bluff hill a little ways, which saved it from the rising waters. It didn't make accessing the place any easier, as I had to cut the other way through Oregon when the water dropped enough to go that way.

    You know what's funny? I was stationed in Nevada (followed by Ohio) when the whole Squaw Creek name change happened and was caught completely off guard when I got back to Nebraska. I was looking for snow goose counts before the Spring conservation season opened and kept seeing "Loess Bluffs NWR" come up, but couldn't find Squaw Creek. It took me a while to realize that it was the same place. What drove the name change anyway?

    In the state of Missouri we have these degenerates that have to be politically correct. It was afraid that a native American would be offended. It is Squaw Creek to the old residenters and will remain so in the real world. The battle isn't over yet on the name change.

    If that's the case, I can definitely believe we have a politically correct contingent in MO, but part of me thinks that the pressure was exerted from further out. As a well-known National Wildlife Refuge (BBC did a special on it), I'd imagine there was a lot of banter from leftists all over the country to change the name. Heaven forbid we have something named after the people who probably frequented the creek. While we're at it, let's remove the word "Mormon" from anywhere in the US it's used to denote an area where those folks lived. They might find that offensive. We're living in crazy times.

    We are probably neighbors. I’m 15 min south of Offutt near Plattsmouth. AF retiree. Be well. Let’s hook up when you return. Plenty of black powder shooters here. I’m trying to find a few down around St Joe.

    Sounds good! I've got about 15 lbs. of FFg and a bunch more of FFFg that needs my attention and an ignition source. We'll burn some coal. I just renewed my ENGC membership, as well.

    Hi again to the KCMO area muzzleloader folk. I goofed yesterday when Jonathan introduced himself in the "Welcome to the Camp" forum. I just saw instructions in this forum which state, (Introductions only - Do Not post questions here). I think this Midwest forum might be the place to pick up on my question to you gents.

    Here is what I wrote last about possibly getting together in our Northland area of KCMO:
    Four and counting...see what you started, Jonathan?
    OK. Three locations are known so far, and somewhat centrally located at the moment is Smithville. Anyone like Iceman's idea? Not necessarily to "start our own club," which I guess could come about. Maybe a breakfast or lunch to at least meet and share ML interests and what we like about our BP journeys, etc.? Also interesting that the mix includes three relative newbies to ML. Might be an event.
    :)


    Is there any interest? I like Iceman's suggestion....
    Have a good day.

    Probably get more traction here for at least impromptu get togethers and maybe if we have enough people interested maybe some sort of club?

    Yeah, this would be a better thread than the intro thread to chat about a KCMO group of muzzleloaders. Let's stick with this spot.

    My suggestion. Not heard anything further from Jonathan....probably busy as many folk are. How about we wait a while, and say later this week I check this thread again and see if he or others chime in? At that time, we could chat about a "trio get together." Sound okay to you gents? I'm willin' to keep the ball rollin' on this...

    A small KCMO ML Club sounds :cool: the more we talk about it.

    @PineyCreek I am willing to commit to a get together of some kind around the Smithville area. I'm sure there would be others in the area interested. Piney Creek
