Day 5 Transcontinental run

Day 5 start was a cold 27 degrees which necessitated a trip to WalMart for some warmer clothes. But the day warmed up to 46 and we were grateful for a full day of sun.  We drove the Maxwell from Vandalia, across the Eads bridge, through downtown St Louis and in to St Charles. We have taken Maxwell on the interstate for  a  few miles and decided it was more enjoyable on the smaller roads. So this required some changes to our original route. Definitely a more relaxing drive on the back roads but it also made it much longer.  At sunset we put the Maxwell on the trailer and continued on to Boonville, MO via the interstate for the evening. Be sure to check out the Maxwell Chronicles for a few of today’s pictures and a handful of short videos.

  1. 27° brrrr! More power to you! Maybe a flask would help! No wonder you needed warmer clothes. Are you going along Rt 66 at all?

  2. Warmer clothes? Probably makes a man appreciate the car heater defrost invention! Hope you get to warmer weather soon. Joe
