Today we headed to St. Louis for a ride up the fabulous and famous arch. As Dave pulled into the bus drop off zone, something outside the windowmcaught Chris' eye. Lo and behold, it was Alyssa...standing waiting to greet us!
Due to her work schedule, Alyssa couldn't come on tour with us, but she flew into St Louis this morning, and took a commuter train to the arch to meet up with the team for the weekend. Patti was great at keeping the secret, but if we'd paid attention we would have figured it out. Her garment bag was with us the whole time, along with her personally labeled plastic cup. We're so excited to see her and have "Number 15" on the coach!
The arch was beautiful, although crowded and very hot. Once we'd done the requisite trek to the top, Dave motored us to Springfield. Tomorrow morning we'll catch the Lincoln Library and some other historic sites, and then head to Dubuque for the concert tomorrow night.
Only three days until our homecoming!
