Left Chris' place early yesterday, but my bus of choice was sold out, so I had another 5 hour wait in a bus terminal until 3.30, meaning I didn't get to St Louis until 11pm. I'd decided to splash out though and book myself into the Hilton here though, so at least I had a night of relative luxury ahead. Awoke at 10, and head a quite expensive omelette for breakfast before going to see the sights. First on the list was the Gateway Arch, a huge structure representing the status of St Louis as Gateway to the west. It was pretty impressive, but I gave the ride to the top a miss, I'd read it wasn't really worthwhile. After this, I visited the Museum of Westward Expansion (mostly because it was free) which documented the ... read more

Hello again, I'm going to try to keep this up. At least until I get off the road this Spring. As you can tell I made it home just fine. My plane landed on the 6th and I was back to work on the 12th. It's been full on ever since. I spent one week in Nashville but now in the midst of 10 weeks on the road, which will be followed by another 7 weeks on the road. I'll post when I can, mostly just to keep my sanity I'm not really concerned if people are reading it or not. I don't get much opportunity for pictures but if I did they would be the inside of hotel rooms which basically all look the same anyway. I had a great Thanksgiving. I tried to tell ... read more

From St Louis we traveled to Kansas City, MO. We stayed at the Basswood Country Resort in Platte City, MO. I spent Thanksgiving with my Aunt Jane, Uncle Frank, Cousin Kathy and her husband Ed at their beautiful house. On Saturday and Sunday I spent the day at my Uncle Frank and Aunt Jane's house, reminiscing about old time. On Sunday Kathy and Ed came over with their two grandkids. Basswood is a very nice RV park. It would be even nicer in the summer. I had a pull thru with full hookups. They had nice facilities and I highly recommend it.... read more

Sunday, September 16, 2007 Hello everyone! I am happy to report that I had a safe trip back to the US, and have been spending the past couple of days hanging out with friends and family, watching the Cardinals’ hope of an insane comeback in the NL Central collapse to the tune of a 9-game losing streak, and generally reacquainting myself with life here in St. Louis, all while nursing a minor case of jetlag… It has been a good few days, for sure. Now that I’m at home, I’m making it a top priority to get this blog all caught up. Knowing I already have a TON of stuff I’ve got to do while I’m home, we’ll see how that goes… But I am going to try… Anyway, as far as being back in the ... read more

So far so good. I made it all the way from Boston and my car is still kicking. Not that it shouldn't work fine, I'm just waiting for something to go wrong! St. Louis is a pretty interesting city. The arch is quite amazing but I'm just not feeling it here. It's pretty dangerous. I was told by the girl at the front desk of the hostel that I shouldn't walk alone at night and if I do not to take my purse with me. Such a stark contrast to Cambridge! The architecture around this area, Soulard, reminds me of the South End. A lot of Brownstones, old architecture and cute little side streets. Though I'm sure the housing prices are much more affordable. Later I'm heading to Branson, Mo which I hear is the new ... read more

I'm starting the mad rush of preparation for our big 2007 trip to Europe. I had so much fun making Simpsons versions of me and Nicole that I decided to use them for our blog picture. Hopefully you enjoy as much I do! We leave in 6 days. I have my packing list complete and will begin the task of packing everything for 17 days into 1 bag tomorrow. Hopefully this blog works out on the road and I will be able to share the trip as it happens. ... read more

St. Louis-Home to the 2006 World Series Champion Cardinals. You can arrive in town at 4:30 call and get tickets for that night's game. $59.00 each gets you really good seats behind 3rd base. Too bad they lost to San Diego. We walked to the park from our hotel, the Drury Plaza. If you're ever in the area this is great value. Happy hour is 5:30 to 7:30, three free drinks each and munchies. Every morning they serve a full free breakfast and this is definitely one of their nicest hotels. Our room as requested had a view of the gateway arch. The weather remains blistering HOT! At game time it must have been 98. Wednesday morning we walked across the street to the famous gateway arch. Until this trip I never realized you can ... read more
