Driving in Style

St Louis is only about a 4 to 4 1/2 hour drive from Chicago depending if the State Police are out in force or not. Speed Limit is 65, but as long as you follow the flow of traffic and don't go zooming in the right lane you can go along at about a 72 to 75 MPH clip. This Jaquar passed me, but got back in the right lane as there were a lot of troopers on the road this day.

The Arch (No Not Another McDonalds)

When the Gateway Arch was built in St Louis in the 1960's people from Illinois always wondered when they were going to build the croquet mallet across the river in East St Louis.

The Statue in the River

I will have to do a little research on this statue as I took it while down by the Mississippi River on my way out of town. Suffice to say, I'd never seen this here before on a couple of other trip down to St. Louis in the past.
