Sep 16, 2019 - St Louis, Missouri

St Louis, Missouri Day 12 We would like to see as much of St Louis as we can in a day and read in the travel book that there is a tourist tram which will take us round the main sights in 90 minutes. We jump in the car, the address in punched into the sat nav and we're off North in the direction of the city. The tram leaves the Casino near to the river front at noon. The city looks much more appealing from this perspective. Although the river is very industrial, the city is open with lots of green spaces. The tour covers the area down by the...

Aug 19, 2019 - Beloit Birthday, Illinois Fair, and St. Louis friends

Way behind on our blog entries. SORRY!!!! ;-( The last blog entry was a “Church of the Day” that was special to me because I had spent my elementary school years living in the Parish, attending services at this church, and attending 6 years of Elementary School at the Parish school. (Brother Dutton Elementary). Very nostalgic and special to me. We were in Beloit WI because it was my Brother’s Birthday. Happy Birthday Pat!!! What a great visit we had with the Bliss Family. Once again, very nostalgic and special to me. We parked our RV at...

One Day @ a Time

May 30, 2019 - St Louis!

Just about 300 mile trip from Indy to St Louis. Found the RV park and got set up. Caught the shuttle over to the casino, and made our deposit at the slots. Hearing a lot about the local area not being very safe, so we're hanging around the coach today until we venture out for some Sugar Fire BBQ. Tomorrow we are going to a Cards vs Cubs game at Busch Stadium. Looking forward to seeing another MLB park.

Oct 24, 2018 - Modes

When I drive, I'm often looking for cycling conditions. Is there a shoulder? How wide are lanes? What kind of traffic is there? How much traffic? What speeds posted and actual? Is there any signage for bikes? Hills: grade, length? Much of what I see is unattractive for cycling. So far, I've followed only one signed bicycle route: the Mississippi River route in western Kentucky. The way reminded me of cycling in Europe, with narrow lonely roads to funky or semi-charming little towns. No one was touring, though. Wheat harvest is underway,...

Oct 9, 2018 - Sleeping at the Gateway to the West

It was an uneventful drive to St. Louis. Long, but trouble free. A good day. Many of the photos are simply glimpses of Iowa driving south through the state. It wasn't a freeway but a lovely country highway framed by cornfields shaved to the ground for winter. Many farmers in the center of Iowa and especially across the north had not been able to complete their harvests due to our excessive rain. They couldn't get their equipment into the muddy fields. I think today was day 13 of fairly heavy rain. I was lucky on my last day of work and only...

Sep 17, 2018 - Sep 17 - travel day

Travel day - on our way from Knoxville to Tennessee and didn't want to get caught in the traffic and busy-ness of St. Louis. Stayed near Jackson, TN Soooo much corn - seems since we left E. Grand Forks,MN, all we've seen is corn crops. We understand from others that this is largely fuel crops (rather than feed).

Sep 17, 2018 - The Arch St Louis

Today’s agenda is to go see the St. Louis Arch. We were bugging Suzanne to go up the elevator system with us, but she backed out right as I was buying the tickets. Turned out it was a smart move. The elevator system consists of 8 cars, with each car carrying 5 people. I am no small guy and it was no large car. Reminded me of the Jetson’s. Really a tight fit, but only a 4minute ride up and a 3 minute ride down. We were lucky and got on the car whose door would not open when we arrived at the top. Started getting warm for a bit, then the...

Sep 16, 2018 - Casino Queen RV Park

It’s now Sunday the 16th of September and we are on our way to St Louis Missouri. The weather it way hotter than I had anticipated. As we travel the temp. is changing from 90 to 95. If I can load the videos you will the St Louis Arch as we approach it from Illinois. We are staying the Casino Queen Rv Resort. It is a nice resort with Black Top drives and sites. Pretty open and pretty hot. Following setting up the 5th Wheels we met with Mark and Alex Tilford for dinner at Mission Taco. Mission Taco is owned by Mark and Alex’s son and after...

Oct 3, 2017 - Gateway to the West

It was less than a two hour drive to my next destination so I lazily did my chores and internet viewing and didn't leave Springfield until 1:30 p.m. The manager and his girlfriend knocked on my door at about noon and I figured he was wondering when I was taking off. But no, since I had a cat, would I like the little black and white kitten with no tail? The promised parents had backed out. Someone had left the pregnant mama kitty at the fairgrounds and lo and behold, the manager's office became a nursery. I would love to give Boots a friend,...

Sep 20, 2017 - Forrest Park and Vicinity

Today's plan called for spending time primarily in Forrest Park. Up and out around 8. Stop for breakfast at a McDonald's up the street then swung by Bonnie and Greg's old home on Laclede Place. Hit east end of Forrest Park then followed the bike trail along the southern edge to perhaps midway through the park before heading north to the Jewel Box. Swung past the World's Fair Pavilion for a couple of pictures then headed on to the zoo. One nice thing about Forrest Park is all the attractions (museums, zoo) are free. Probably haven't been in...

Sep 19, 2017 - Meet Me in St Louie

Up around 7:30. Took care of some housekeeping items w/ my bicycle, jumped on it and headed downtown about 8:15. Fairly smooth trip until closer to downtown where the one way streets and wide, busy boulevards created some challenges. Had some difficulty finding the location of the trolley tour I wanted to take at 10. The address seemed to be where the casino was and I thought it left from the visitor's center. So I was about to go into the casino and ask when the trolley pulled up. Turns out this is where it left from. As always a nice...
