Another long day of driving as we continue to head East. We drive 265 miles from Branson, Missouri to St Louis, Missouri. We're staying at the St Louis RV Park. It's a RV park that's actually in the city of St Louis, so we take our 53' rig through town. I phoned them and they gave me very good directions to get through town, but it's a little scary to me to be driving in such a large town and not being familiar with the roads. The directions the host gave us are great and we make it to the RV park with no problems. The directions keep us on nice wide roads with nice wide turns through town.
The RV park is in an industrial area of the city and is simply a parking lot for RVs, with water, electric and sewer hook-ups. I wasn't sure if I really wanted to stay here, but the hosts are very friendly and the best part is that they have a nice swimming pool! It is HOT HOT HOT again today.
We set up the trailer, start the air conditioner going and then head downtown to buy tickets for tomorrow's St Louis Cardinal baseball game (we're still trying to see all the major league baseball parks). The baseball park is only 5 minutes from the RV park, so Jere drops me off, I buy the tickets and we head back to the campground. I make dinner while Jere and Joe go for a swim. We eat dinner in our bedroom--the coolest room in the 5ver. Then we all head to the pool.
No one else is in the pool so we have it all to ourselves. We swim for awhile and then head back to the 5ver for an early bedtime.
