Oct 31, 2014 - Moving on Toward Home

Sundermeier RV Resort, 111 Transit Street, St. Charles, MO 63301, 636-940-0111 We didn't start until around 10:00 am as we had another short trip. We reached the campsite around 1:00 pm. We have stayed at this campground twice before. It is very nice with concrete pull through sites but also a pretty price to match. We got set up then went looking for a place to get a haircut. We found a Great Clips and got our hair cuts. Then we stopped next door at a Mexican Grill where we had huge burritos (too much to eat). After fueling the truck (only...

Nov 11, 2013 - Oddities

Saint Charles, MO We started our day with a trip to Hancock’s of Paducah, a fabric store. “Store” is a misnomer as it is actually 2 large warehouses connected. We were surprised to see a fairly full parking lot. The place is very popular. It is filled with hundreds of bolts of quilting fabric and had lots of quilts displayed. It was quite unique. For another unique sight, we stopped at Mount Vernon, Illinois, to see a replica of the Washington Monument from Washington DC. This one is only 100’ while the original is over 500’. We also took...

Sep 23, 2013 - St. Charles, MO

St. Charles, Missouri is truly one of our favorite cities. Historic Main Street is quaint and authentic in it's cobblestone streets and buildings from the early 1800's. It was from this location that the famous explorers, Lewis and Clark, set off on a 3 year trek to forge the trail to the Pacific Ocean and back. This was the most important exploration in our history as it led to the formation of the Oregon Trail. We enjoy this area because there is a wonderful bike path called the Katy Trail. It is a recreational rail trail that runs 240...

When we left this morning it was in the 20's with frost all over the ground. We drove about 275 miles to Saint Charles, Mo. We are staying on the 21st floor overlooking the Missouri River. We will be driving another 375 miles tomorrow to visit with Vickie, Ed & Sammy in Kentucky. Check back later for more from Kentucky.

Nov 4, 2012 - Visiting St. Charles

We took our time this morning then went for a walk down the Katy Trail stopping for views of the Missouri River. After having lunch at a little diner nearby, we drove to downtown St. Charles. It was once the Capital of Missouri and the old Capitol Building is still here. A two block strip of downtown still has brick streets and the buildings have all been here since the 1800's. There are many cute little shops but we didn't stop as there were very few parking places especially for our monster truck. We got some groceries at the local...

Nov 3, 2012 - Next Stop St. Charles

Beginning Mileage 35778 Ending Mileage 35986 Sundermeier RV Park 111 Transit St. St. Charles, MO 63301 636-940-0111 8.5/10/8.5 Our first stop was at a truck stop where we had the truck and RV washed. While we were there, we had a nice breakfast then hit the road. We traveled straight across I-70. The trip was not long and no bad weather. When we reached St. Charles it was very overcast and cold. We have stayed at this park before. It is a little pricey but really nice with concrete pads and a restaurant on site. Behind the park is the Katy...

Oct 20, 2012 - South to St. Charles

We had a short drive south to St. Charles so there was no rush to get going. Joe disconnected the utilities and hooked up the Jeep and we got going. It was windy and misty but we didn’t delay and arrived at Sundermeier RV Park just in time for lunch. We were a little apprehensive that this park might be noisy because it’s close to the highway and there’s an elevated train track nearby; but, we signed up for three nights anyway; we want to get a mail shipment while we’re here. Our excitement for the day started when we put our big slide-out...

Aug 31, 2012 - Day at the Doctors and Sweetie Pie’s

We headed to the Washington University-Jewish Hospital Orthopedic Center this morning to get Sue’s knee examined. It turns out this group are the orthopedics doctors for the St. Louis Rams and Blues. The good news is that Sue still has both of her legs. The doc said she has a little arthritis, but couldn’t tell from the x-ray if there was anything torn. He said they’d have to do an MRI to tell if there was a tear. He said that she should keep taking the Naproxen to relieve the pain and swelling. Thankfully for her the swelling has gone down...

Aug 29, 2012 - Miscellaneous Ramblings

Since we are in one spot for a couple days, today was a day to run some errands and do a little site seeing. Last night we were watching the RNC and heard a noise that we couldn’t figure out what it was. Before going to bed Sue went into the wardrobe and saw that the pole hanger had collapsed so one of the errands for today was to get what we needed to repair it. So far it’s been the AC, steps, sink, and now the closet pole. I hope this is the last thing, but I know better. Since we were in the Saint Louis area I wanted to go to the...

Aug 28, 2012 - Crossing the Mississippi River Yet Again

Before leaving this morning, I came out to get the car ready and the Fit was covered with bird crap. Looking up into the tree there was a bird’s nest directly above it. So much for the car wash yesterday. We made a short move today from Illinois to St. Charles, MO. The trip took us across the Mississippi River for the 3rd time on this trip. We will be at Sundermeier RV Park and Conference Center at least until Saturday. It’s located along the banks of the Missouri River. St. Charles looks like it’s going to be nice place to visit. I drove...

May 28, 2012 - Memorial Day

2012-05-28 Memorial Day 4:30 AM comes earlier than I normally get up, but sunrise is at 5:40 Am and I want to be at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetary when the sun starts lighting up the grave markers and the 188,000 flags placed there by the Boy Scouts yesterday. After taking several shots from many different view points, we packed up and headed to an IHOP for breakfast around 7:00. The Memorial Day service was to begin at 10:00 so we returned and parked just outside the gates at 8:30 then found a good shady spot near the ceremony area...

May 25, 2012 - Augusta to St. Charles

We started out with breakfast at our lodging, the Lindenhoff House in Augusta--stuffed french toast with strawberries on top. Yummy! We then hit the trail. The wind had died down today, so the pedaling was not too difficult. Both of us were suffering from muscle and joint ache, but that just comes with the territory. We have met several people along the way that were also riding the whole trail. Earlier in the week we met a group of eleven people from South Carolina who started out the same day we did. In fact they stayed at the same hotel...
