I’ve only got Internet on my phone tonight so this is just a quick update to let you know I’ve arrived at my destination in Missouri and will be sticking around here for a few days. Will do some updating and the rest of my emailing when I get the Internet sorted out. :)
Addendum: there was a lot of pretty country up in northern Missouri. Coupled with some of the recurring American roadside oddities that one encounters down here.
The one that gets me most is gas stations. Most of which you can buy beer and hard alcohol at, but some even carry fireworks too. I can’t think of a better combination that booze, explosives and gasoline.
Like this one (note also, antiques and the really beautiful countryside)
I liked this ad in the window for Conoco gasoline:
And I particularly liked the two toilet bathroom setup. Presumably ‘his’ and ‘hers’??
And your map for the day!
