...on high water
so this morning, our intrepid crew started the day drinking awful coffee, only to find fantastic coffee at this fine place.
we followed with a trip to the river. and got us to thinking,
with a mountain range in the middle, Missouri is a not to scale model of the united states. with st louis in the east being new york city and kansas city being the vastly more western los angeles. two towns that have vastly different looks and feels.
a trip well met as we ate some 8 hour old Arthur Bryant's under the arch which we called the gateway to the east since we're now heading east.
we encouraged the boy not to throw up on the arch as we may get banned for life from missouri as ozzy was in Texas.
now the open road calls to the east as we speed away from the setting sun. let's just try not to run into a ditch.
