Mikes Creek and Big Sugar River, McDonald, Missouri
|Notes: Low 49 degrees, high 81 degrees - found some arrowheads, 8 canoes|
|Please keep in mind that I was
between 12 and 19 years of age when these trips took place. I was rather fixated on arrowheads and
Indian lore at that time - as indicated by the notes. I am working from 3" x 5" note
cards that I typed at that time. In my memory now, many of these trips are blurred together.
Several of the trips were not technically O.W.W.C. trips - Hedges vacation (although Harold was
the President of O.W.W.C. for many years) - also, as I got up in age to 17-19, some of the
trips were with my high school friends.
Arrowheads / scrapers / "bird points" / drills displayed were not necessarily found on the trip listed. I have tried to make them as close to the actual size as possible. They were found in plowed fields, washouts, along the river or creek bed, or in roads or trails. I did have a system of labeling them at the time - where a bit of masking tape was coded to match the 3" x 5" card listing the trip. Unfortunately, most of those labels have faded making it difficult to match up.
