Day 03 – Illinois to Missouri

After a good night at Camp-A-While we shot off to pick up some essentials from the local Walmart.

It’s amazing how much time you can lose when comparing toilet rolls, then once again we set off on the road.

Headed into St Louis to visit the Gateway Arch, to end up stuck in narrow one way cobbled streets where we encoutered a bridge with 8 foot clearance in front of us – which would have been ok – but the RV is 12 foot – thanks to a very (un)helpful local.

After a fraught half an hour we decided to stuff the Gateway Arch and headed west on Route 66 again towards Meramec Caverns.

It seems like every man and his dog were picking up RVs at Chicago and heading down Route 66 so we were a bit delayed starting. We are currently a little behind schedule but hope to make up the time over the next couple of days.

Here is the progress so far…
