    I was born and raised in Missouri. Every year we would drive down to Alley Springs and camp for a week. This was in 1964. We always camped next to the very cold Alley Spring. In the after noon we swam in the Jack Fork. There was a go cart track, and a little store. I think it was called Harvies. Some of the best times I ever had. Back in those days, very few folks had campers. We pitched a tent and had a great. The only downside was those God Awful out houses. The stench was unbearable. Ah…. the good old days

  2. We moved to a small town Loveland, Colorado in 1968. Been here ever since.

    Also, we drove down from Saint Louis to hopefully find a spot to pitch our Army tent. My parents had a 1948 Chevy and away went. My dad got home from work and off we went.
    Now, I wouldn’t mind retiring there at Ally Springs. In fact I would love to be buried
    there.
