The Gateway Arch in St. Louis.
We did not go up in it because there were
no windows except at the top and we figured
the ride would be as scenic as a BART ride to Oakland.

Rich Krechel.  We stayed with him - and he took us all around St. Louis! Choissers Janis, Bonita, and Bill in Harrisburg, Illinois. - Janis is Bill's first cousin and her mother Bonita is his aunt. A close-up of Janis, Bonita, and Bill. Bill finds a kindred spirit - who also has white hair on his face - in Bonita's dog! Choisser Street in Eldorado, Illinois. - Note that Larry is not the only one on this trip - to get photographed in front of arches!
Bill and his college buddy Bill Rauwolf - in front of Bill Rauwolf's house in Mattoon, Illinois. Bill and Bill. Larry with Bill. We're now in Michigan! This is John Shepherd. - We will be vacationing with him and - his partner John Litrenta for several days. Kicking back with coffee, our first morning at John and John's.
John and John welcomed us with a big breakfast. - Here we are with John Litrenta. The main room of their house has large south-facing windows - so the room is very bright. We intended our first day to be one of relaxation - after nine days on the road. - Bill is following the plan! On the morning of our first day traveling with John and John - we come to the Mackinac Bridge which - connects the two peninsulas of Michigan. We take a break to check out the bridge. - We still haven't crossed it; this is taken from the south side.
