Jun 5, 2018 - Saint Charles, MO

We drove about 2 hours to St. Charles, MO which is a suburb of St. Louis. We’ve been here several times and really love the area, especially the historic downtown area of St. Charles. St. Charles was originally the capitol of Missouri and the downtown area architecture is very colonial. There are lots of great shops and restaurants too. After setting up the RV and taking Rocky for a walk, we went to a late lunch at our favorite restaurant and sat outside enjoying the weather. We visited a few shops but since I had to get to a nail...

Apr 25, 2018 - Close the Account-Don't Charge the Account

Then we ordered a cover for the pickup bed. We had pretty much decided on a brand and type of cover . However, when we got to the truck accessory store the person there told us that another one had a life time warranty. So, we ended up ordering that one. About a week later I went over and had it installed. It also seemed easy to install but they do it for free. After it was installed I wasn’t sure I liked the way it secured or looked. The one we wanted was flush and this one was raised a little. Then when the owner was going over the...

Apr 11, 2018 - President Trump in St. Louis

One of the times I was in St. Louis I was planning to go back to Olney on November 28th. However, I talked to Margie that day and she told me that she had seen that President Trump was going to be in the area where I was the next day. So, I stayed another day and went to the convention center where he was going to speak. I enjoyed myself there talking to several people including a vendor selling Trump hats, shirts, etc. I videoed and audio recorded some of my interactions. Although, I didn’t see President Trump it was really fun. I did see...

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...

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...

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...
