Hello MO!

19 Jul

Missouri, that is!

We left home at 5:45am and headed southwest to Missouri. Dan has to spend a day in Sedalia, MO and then we are headed over to St. Louis for the weekend.

Dan drove the first leg of the journey through Springfield, IL. I was able to get started on knitting some socks.

I also brought Sonia’s scarf to finish but the lace pattern requires more concentration than car knitting provides. I’ll work on that in the hotel. I drove the rest of the way to Sedalia so that Dan could work – on the phone and computer – to prep for this meeting.

It was four lane most of the way but one treacherous stretch was two lane through itty-bitty towns. It was speed up…. Slow down through this town of 300… Speed up… Slow down to take the hairpin curves. Ugh! The towns seemed to consist of a mix of old rundown houses built post-WW II and newer trailers on cinder blocks. But besides that stretch, it was four lane highway driving.

Missouri has seen drought similar to Illinois it seems. The corn looks like it should be harvest soon in some places – it’s that brown.

More later… We are going out to get water and snacks now. I picked up some flyers for “what to do in town” in the hotel lobby. More pics and updates later!
