Wed. May 18, 2011

Joined Matt & Jen & Ada for breakfast. Packed up & hit Hwy 3 around 10am. on our way to St. Louis for a  visit to the Arch. A beautiful drive along Hwy3 which follows the Mississippi. We did see some flooded farmlands. Arrived in St. Louis around 12 noon. Took our GPS route & ended up on a cobblestone road near the arch! Have you ever driven a 38 ft.. RV towing a jeep!! Quite a bumpy feat. Larry handled it beautifully & I was a nervous wreck. We tried for about 1 hour to find adequet parking for our vehicles- but to no avail. We finally succombed to failure & headed West on I-70. Next stop Wildwood acres campground. We traveled a windy road for several miles. On the way to the campground Larry spotted a quaint little post office & stopped to get stamps so we can send you some postcards.It was closed, but the lady was sitting out back  & was kind to get him some stamps. We are grateful. The campgound is lovely & ever so peaceful- our sattelite didn't connect( too many trees), no internet connection or as some of you know, no cell phone service. We took a lovely walk & enjoyed nature. Turned in early, did some reading & are off to Lincoln, NE tomorrow.
