My Name is David Bayless. I live in Carthage, Missouri which is about 10 miles from Joplin or about 60 miles to Springfield. I can also be in Oklahoma, Kansas or in Arkansas in about 45 Minutes - thats why they call this area " The Four-State Area." I live about 2 miles from the famous "Precious Moments." Another great place to see if "Red Oak II." Carthage is a historical city, and theres something to do and see for everyone. The area I live in is also called "The Missouri Ozarks." They call Missouri "The Show Me State." Our state flower is the Hawthorn Blossum. Our state bird is the Bluebird. Our state tree is the Flowering Dogwood. Jefferson City is where our state capital is located.
I named this site "Ozarks Voyage" ............. because I plan to have something of everything. I plan to have items for sale, or for things I am looking for, etc. I'm also going to use this web site to express myself. I'll have a page with my opinions or current events, You'll also find a great reference page with click on links. Many of the photos, also can be clicked on and it will take you to another site. This site is variety and oddity. I'm an honest, country man who likes the simple things in life. I have high standards and expectations and I am proud to tell the world - GOD IS FIRST IN MY LIFE!" You'll meet my family too, and when I learn to use this new scanner - I'll put family photo's here too. It is No Secret What God Can Do! What He's Done For Others...He'll Do For You!
***Check Back often. I will be updating and adding to this site.
This may load slowly...so I hope you please be Patient!

I am a member of the Cowboyup Wrangler Webring. My youngest son Anthony belongs to the Missouri Junior Rodeo Association, and has been doing Rodeo's since he was 14. He is a freshman in College now in Oklahoma, and is studying Rodeo there. He worked at Sanders Ranch for almost 4 years before he started college. He has not decided on a major yet, but is taking mostly Agriculture and Business Classes. I've never seen a kid so full of bumps and bruises, that sports them like a trophey - The Rodeo scene is his thing! Most of his buddies do the same thing - and the broken bones and bruises come with the thrill. Royalty Arena as well as the Civil War Arena are close to where we live.
