           Gatesville is just a few miles outside of Nashville Indiana.
Salt Creek runs thru Gatesville and we can use about a mile or so of the
                   creek in each direction from the Country Store.

                  The thing about Gatesville is its easy to get into
           (you can drive right upto the creek and unload your gear)
       The waters slow and shallow with geodes for the kids to pickup.
Lets keep the internet
Open in this country
