(Jana)  Wednesday 7:30 pm CST: Got a very early start (5:45 EST) this morning to make up for last night. Arrived in St. Louis at around 1:00 pm.  As soon as we parked the RV, we all put our hands in the muddy Mississippi River.  We watched a 30 minute film on how the St. Louis Arch was built and then visited the guest center while waiting for our trip to the top.  The Arch is incredible!  It had stopped raining so our view was amazing. 

We are now headed for Springfield, MO to spend the night at Camping World.  Desperate need of a shower, but what's one more day!  Darren made a move on the waitress at Applebee’s tonight.  As we were leaving he handed her a dollar and said "I think you’re so pretty."  She was very flattered and Darren, quite proud of himself, leaped in mid-air when we got outside.  It was a riot!   Tom commented later that he was proud of Darren and it was a big moment for him in his lifetime.  Arrived at Camping World at 9:30 pm CST.  Good night all!

(Kevin)  We are having a great time.  Travels today include Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri.  The Arch is the highlight of the trip so far for me.  We have the best kids in the world.  Never complaining about the long days and are best buddies playing games and watching the sights.  Another long day tomorrow as we will have a late start after the air conditioning repairs.  Should be in New Mexico tomorrow night. 

606 miles today, avg. speed 59.3 mph, total travel time 10:14, total miles for trip 1,856

We are so proud of you Darren. We are sad that we missed your Applebees moment....hoping for a picture though...Uncle Scott is ESPECIALLY proud:) Tom- you should consider a future in writing-loving your commentaries. We miss you all. Keep having fun and be safe.

I felt like I was in a washing machine when I went up into the arch. The view was great.
