"Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don't be sorry."  Jack Kerouac

We left Texas last week and drove through Oklahoma, Missouri and Illinois to get to Indiana. There was much record hunting along the way and plenty to see. We drove down Route 66, something I have always wanted to do. While in Tulsa, OK we had the most delicious Mexican food for lunch at Gallo Loco (truly the best ever). We arrived in St. Louis, MO minutes before midnight and just in time to see the Gateway Arc before the lights turned off.  The Mississippi river sparkled in the moonlight as we walked through the park, we had it all to ourselves. It was hard not to stop at the vintage and antique stores in between the corn and soybean fields along the highway. We rummaged through records in Illinois, and had the best beer ever in New Harmony, IN (New Harmonie Bier).  It was the best way to spend three days, mid-week.
