You won't believe the stories that Davy Crockett has to tell about wrestling a bear, marrying Sally-Ann-Thunder-Ann-Whirlwind Crockett and journeying to the North Pole to save the earth. But he was indeed a real person, a congressman who lived from 1736 - 1836. You can even see his gun "Ol Betsy" at the Alamo in Texas.

This week we are podcasting from a campground in Rochester, Washington. We recorded on the 4th of July and reminisce about our past few years when we spent the Fourth of July in "America's favorite hometown" Hannibal, Missouri. We'll give you some background information and insider tips about the National Fence Painting contest which takes place yearly in Mark Twain's Boyhood home and the setting for his books "Tom Sawyer" and "Huckleberry Finn". You'll find pictures and more information about Hannibal, Mo on these pages:

My son has autism and I think that the calmest story time we have ever experienced is when we listen to your podcasts. It\'s a great way for us to share in your stories that might not otherwise come to our town, and for some reason your voices really make him stop and listen. Thank you for the great work! Someday we may just make it to Hannibal for the 4th of July!
