There’s No Place Like Everywhere: Why We’re Living in an RV Instead of a House (Again!)

Favorite Drives: Route 66 – St. Louis, MO to Stanton, MO

May 2, 2014: St. Louis, Missouri to Stanton, Missouri Distance: 67 miles While we’d have loved to start our Route 66 trip at its eastern terminus in Chicago, we already had plans that involved being in St. Louis for a couple weeks and it just wasn’t practical or cost effective to drive further northeast just to do a stretch […]
