Travel is a treat when you bring the dogs!

Hello From East St. Louis….Illinois!!! (What???!!)

Hi Everyone!!
Here we are in East St. Louis…Illinois! Yes, Illinois. Apparently, our campground, sitting on the east side of the Mississippi River, is still technically in Illinois! Ha!
It’s ok, after a GPS mishap, we wound up driving the camper into downtown St. Louis. Add that to all the St. Louis adventures planned and we can safely say we have lived in Missouri too.

Casino Queen, St. Louis photoThe RV park is part of the Casino Queen. Perhaps a casino night is on our itinerary too?? We will see! They claim to have the “loosest slots” which apparently means they pay out more frequently than most casinos. Some how that description just seems bizarre and vaguely inappropriate to me. That being said, it won’t stop me from playing them! 🤗

At least we have a killer city view. A new one for us since this road trip began. I read St. Louis has something called “gooey butter cake”….I have to say I am intrigued. We haven’t indulged in any Illinois or Missouri local delicacies yet and this sounds like a calorie filled must!!!

More to come….stay tuned!
