The Road Less Traveled

Yesterday, I told you about my experience at the St. Louis Cardinals game, today I have got to tell you, when I travel to visit my in-laws in Alabama,  I usually travel 70 first and on the way back I see a sign that says Highway 50, before you hit the major portions of St. Louis.  So I tell my wife I want to go all the way down Highway 50 once from St. Louis to Sedalia.  I got the chance to do it after visiting The Hill District as it’s off Highway 44.  Decided to stay on it and I don’t regret it.   While Highway 70 gives you the 70 mph speed limit,  50 is about 55 most of the way, except through towns.   Though Turf Martin at Wine & More, I’ve often heard him say it’s Wine Country of Missouri and he was right.   I lost track of the amount of wineries between St. Louis and Hermann, but it looks like it would be a fun Highway 50 Wine excursion.   I saw parts of the Katy Trail I’ve never seen too.   Lots of S curves and a few cliffs, made the trip a beautiful excursion.  I think I saved about 15 miles, but took about 10 minutes longer to travel down 50,   so next time you are somewhere that you normally go,  why not take the road less traveled ane enjoy some of Missouri’s scenery.    It reminds me of when my driver’s ed partner Jason Freeman and I set a course with Coach Stockdale in Knob Noster, plot a course and then see if you can find side roads,  it will be worth the conversation later:)     I still think Coach hasn’t a clue where we ventured on that day, but that shall be left for another story at another time  :)
