Currently in Missouri, the 25th state I've been to. Have you ever been to Missouri?
Yeah, and I hate it every time.
Brisket would love this!
Yes I been to Kansas city Missouri
Misery is nice.
And no interest in ever going.
Lived here my whole life. Can't seem to escape yet
What's so bad about it?
Yep, I lived there for a year.
Went to Branson or however you say it
South City biznatch!
Though I'm not cool enough for the city 😔 Someday, I'll buy in Soulard. Some glorious day...
KC for two days once
Misery. They just spell it funny, but the meaning is the same.
I live here!
My daddy is from there. I first visited when I was 3. I remember wind mills and playing in a wash tub.
Just recently I was in St. Louis
The show me state
Yes! I was in MO (St Louis) for the first last May.
I was at Ft Leonard Wood (Lost in the Woods) for a little while
Eight years in St Louis.
Did you like living there? I did a little research before coming, and saw it had a pretty high crime rate
Some things were nice. The zoo, the Botanical garden, and the Arboretum were favorites. The Pho Grand and Saleem's restaurants. KDHX public radio. I really disliked the climate. Crime varied by neighborhood. As a rule, West is safer than East.
East St Louis (the Illinois part) had a bad reputation. I can't say that I ever felt unsafe, though; and I did vision screenings in schools in most of the underprivileged neighborhoods. My doctor was in/near Ferguson and it was fine there.
What really bothered me was that the drivers there tend to tailgate a lot. It made me a nervous wreck. Good shopping in St. Charles and Antiquing in Alton IL.
We pretty much just went to the arch and stayed around that area before leaving. I didn't really want to spend the night in St. Louis, so we stayed out in Foristell. I liked it, I definitely would like to go again sometime. I still have never been to
Illinois, but got a good view of it from the arch. I pretty much just looked at a map and saw which state I hadn't been to yet was the closest, when deciding where to go lol. I haven't felt unsafe anywhere in MO. I heard a lot of bad things about
East St. Louis. I also kind of wanted to go to St. Louis because It has my name in it
Which way are you heading next? If you're headed South I can recommend places in and around Memphis TN.
We spent the last 2 nights in Branson, now we're on the way to spent the night in Wichita, to get home tomorrow. I haven't been to TN yet, I'll let you know when I go that way, thanks :)
Yes, I've been in misery.
Ooh, you're halfway done with the full tour. Congrats!
Yup! Half way done before my 21st birthday
To St Louis for about a week for a scientific meeting. I was able to see a lot of the city during free days.
I have. Been to Kansas City, St Louis and Springfield.
Was in KC yesterday morning, St. Louis this morning, and now in Branson
Moving there shortly.
No way! What part?
St. Louis !
That's my area! Do you have family here or moving for work?
After I typed that, I realized you're younger than I thought 😄 Whatever school you're attending, you'll love the city. It's a neat place. Lots to do, good food, free events as well. Let me know if you have any questions about the area!
Thanks, that's very kind!
Many times. I will be there this weekend as well.
What do you do in MO?
We're heading to KC to shop :)
Seems like a nice city, we went to that WW1 memorial, loved the view of the city
Married there, eloped.
