Des Peres, MO Day 3 of the move

We stopped today with the Valenti family who we know from our time in Iceland. The driving was good today, so we took time to have a picnic at one of the rest areas and still arrived by 3:30. It has been wonderful to have time to visit and catch up.

Edited to add:
Here’s what my twitter stream looked like for the day. It gives you a sense of the rhythm.

    Your not far from Hermon and the Stone Hill Winery. My wife loves the port from them. If you’re staying on 70 through KC, I could giva ya a few ideas for the area. Of coarse you’re not touring, you’re moving across the country (I’ve done it enough times as a kid.)

    Oh, Marlowe, we love you and your basket of invisibility. Boy, I could sure use one of those. (Or, failing that, there should be a MRK story about him/it!)
