|Our Hotel in Branson|
There was much excitement as we busied ourselves with cleaning the house, packing our things for the trip and making hasty reservations. We had never been to Branson before, and we thought that going in the off-season might be a real advantage, as we had heard of the immense crowds and traffic snarls that occur between May---December.
At 9:30 last Monday morning, Crazy Clint & Cindy hit the highway. We traveled northeast from Dallas on Central Expressway, took highway 69 into Oklahoma, passed through the Indian Nation on Interstate 40, bent northward through northwest Arkansas, and traveled country roads into Missouri. We reached Branson at 4:00 PM.

We ordered tickets to two shows the next day---Clay Cooper's Country Show at 10:00 on Tuesday and The Acrobats of China in a 3:00 PM performance. The tickets were delivered to our hotel that evening.
