We went from Kansas City, Missouri to just east of St. Louis today. Missouri has more billboards than any state we have been in to date. It’s amazing. A good percentage of them are advertising for advertisers. If you read all the billboards, you couldn’t watch the road. I wonder how many accidents occur on Missouri highways versus other states. Anyway, we were overwhelmed by the billboards. Amazing.
We crossed the Missouri River several times and eventually the mighty Mississippi River. Regis and I are currently “discussing” plans for tomorrow during the day. I would like to go to the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi and he could care less. We’ll probably wind up staying here and dusting the RV. 🙂
Less than 2 miles from our camp ground, Regis hit the curb with the RV while taking a turn. Considering how many miles we have traveled and that he usually drives, it is amazing it took this long for something like this to happen and that it happened while he was driving, not me. The good news is that nothing terrible happened to the RV. The bad news is that the cabinet containing the dishes opened and tossed most of the dishes into the RV. I can tell you that Corelle dishes shatter into shards and dangerous pieces just like glass. It took well over an hour to try to clean it all up. I can’t believe how many places the pieces got into. It was in every nook and cranny you could think of including seat cushions, behind chairs, and in other drawers. In all, only 3 small plates and 2 large plates smashes completely but there was so much to clean up you would have thought several sets of dishes broke.
Regis was discouraged enough that he went out and found some beer so we could just relax all afternoon. The weather is beautiful here and it is SOOOOOOO green. I really like this place.
We are visiting a friend of mine tomorrow evening and I’m really looking forward to getting together with her and her husband. Dart will need to come along so I hope he is a perfect gentleman for the evening.
Tuesday morning we will head to Indiana for an overnight stop before heading to Pittsburgh to visit family members.
