Have you ever had that feeling that you are being followed by a helicopter? No? Well if you have, it may be because you have a screw in your tire. All I can say is, yay for AAA! It was a bumpy start to St. Louis, literally. However, the city redeemed itself by yummy pizza, Cardinals pulling out a win in the bottom of the 9th, tasty crepes, and one giant arch. We traveled over the Mississippi River, by the "gateway to the west," and we continue to sojourn in the beautiful plains with expansive skies on our journey west.
