... no cross country road trip would be complete without seeing the "Gateway to the West"! On our way, we saw signs for the worlds largest golf tee and also the worlds largest wind chime...although we were tempted to stop and see these most intriguing attractions, we had a long drive ahead of us, so we stayed on the highway. Another interesting thing that happened is that we crossed over our first time zone...not sure exactly where, but it was somewhere in SE Illinois....wish ...
... the history of Emma, MO and found out it was discovered by Germans back in the 1800s. There were two elevators, two general stores, the Bank of Emma, and a large dairy cooperation was there (http://emmamissouri.com/History.php). Pretty fascinating and was a big highlight of my drive, especially because the woman who owned the general store was the first human I had encountered in hours and I was the first Emma she had ever met, even through 40 something years ...

Outdoor swimming pool, had a wee dip, then went round the corner to a trendy boutique street with bars and restaurants, little ...
Another day of driving....yep, that's about all I can say. Lots of wind - sure makes the driving very difficult. We drove about 5 hours to just outside St. Louis to a place called Cahokia, IL. There is an RV park here in the middle of the industrial district here. We had a great dinner at the Saw Mill restaurant. They specialize in daily fresh smoked meats - you name it they had it. Very tasty!
