It's too far for me to go look at for anyone, but if soemone buys it I would go pick it up and store it, or even could bring it to Red Power in Lebanon. cost would be amount of gasoline used.

HMMMMM.....that's my home town. As small as Branson is (though growing rapidly) I may know the owners. Guess I don't need any more cubs right now. I still have to pick mine up in south Florida next week.

I take it you haven't been to Branson lately. It's been several years since I was there, but i definitly would no longer consider it small.

John and Kirk: The population of Branson is still low in the off-season. The 2000 census lists 6050 permanent residents. However, the town booms from spring through fall. In 2003, an estimated 7.2 million people visited Branson, spending an estimated 1.4 billion dollars. But it retains a small town atmosphere, even during their busy season. In spite of the heavy traffic on the main drag, it is common for drivers to slow down and wave for cars on the side streets to enter ahead of them. That didn't happen often in St. Louis when we lived there. The crime rate in Branson is very low, I believe one murder in the last fifteen years. A good place for family vacation if you enjoy musical shows, especially country or pop music. I have no association with Branson except we do visit it several times each year. (no paid commercials, we just enjoy the town) We are going up in February to see about spending a month there this summer. Dan

Branson's city population is not that high, but the population in the surrounding areas has grown so fast that I suspect if you took in another 5 miles surrounding Branson the off season population would more than triple.

Probably so, John. The development of shows in Branson has greatly improved the economy of the area, even in larger towns such as Springfield and Harrison. There is also a Veterens Appreciation Week in Branson which brings in many current and retired military personnel. Really a nice tribute for those who have served to protect us. Dan

There don't seem to be much interest in this Cub I wonder if it is any good.
