We did most of the day today on the Interstate, and other than one small stretch of road repairs, the highway was in generally good condition. We bought just enough gas to get us to Missouri because there is a big difference in price. Gas was $3.85 a gallon ($1.00 per litre CAN) in Illinois and only $3.27 ($0.86) in Missouri. We almost made it, but ended up stopping just before Missouri and putting in another $40 worth at $3.49 ($0.92).

Welcome to Missouri
We pulled into Sam and Donna's around 3:30pm and got set up outside the garage. The interesting thing about the blogging world is that you seem to know somebody fairly well even though you've never met. It's a really neat thing then to actually meet!
We had some delicious steaks on the grill for dinner and spent the evening solving the worlds problems.
Sam, getting ready to pour the ketchup on his steak!
Donna made a Canada cake!
Riggs is such a good boy!

In honour of September 11th, we remember our visit to New York City back in October of 2000. Today's header picture was taken from the ferry to Stanton Island.
