Math is wrong. 2-3 weeks before Oct 9th would still put it a month after we were there. ;)


Don't get the wrong impression. We could have easily broken the rope swing with how we were using it, but it was still fully functioning after we left. I can not say the same for the poor soles amongst us who were dumb enough to get on it. :Pr

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Well, yeah, math was never my best subject. ;) Okay, I apologize for accusing you all. But I know secretly you guys had something to do with it. :lmao:

Update time.

Time for another amazing day.
Heat index 114
Do i need to add anything to that??

It was hot, like really really hot this day. The result of this heat was a (for me) limited number of pictures.

Day 6: Six Flags St. Louis

Home to some fun coasters and some painfull/pointless coasters. All in all one very amazing day (especially considering the heat)

Hey guys, haven't posted in a while.

I love that you guys all enjoyed the City Museum so much. We're pretty proud of it here.

Not sure if you guys know, but they actually have concerts in the front room where the stuffed sea animals are hanging (outside the caves).

Back in June, I saw Fishbone there. It was insane.

And they actually had burlesque dancers as an opening act (pasties over their you-know-whats ;) ).

It was a great night. The owners of that place are insanely cool and they apparently have been hosting occasional concerts for a few years (I didn't know until this summer).

Anyway, good to talk to my TPR friends again.

Now I'm off to Six Flags tonight to ride Evel Knievel in the dark...

Only if it's bacon wrapped, batter dipped, and deep fried. Served with a side of melted butter! Oh, if you could shove it into a zuchinni before doing so. That would be amazing. :Pr

Iamb glad you bumped this since I somehow missed this update. Great update from an absolutely miserably hot day. The park seemed like a nice place but with it as unbearably hot as it was, we just layed in the AC'd theater for quite a while.

Looking back at the pics, I am reminded what an absolutely great group of people were on the MidAmerica trip! I want to go back!
