The new Branson Airport recently opened and I decided to check it out. I bought a ticket from Branson to Milwaukee and spent about $100 round trip. I booked my flight right as the airport decided to pull the destination from its schedule. As I waited for my plane, a couple of people recognized me from the news and came by to say hello. Their big question: "Who's going to cover for you while you're gone?" My answer: "I'm sure they will manage."
