Day 28 July 7
Another hot and buggy morning. We walked the dogs and got the heck out of the campground at Jacomo Lake, before the skeeters hauled us away.
We took Rt 50 east, towards Jefferson City, the capitol of Missouri. We would have enjoyed walking around, as it looked like a nice old city, but alas, it was too freakin’ hot and humid. It was 96 degrees out, and felt like it was 126 degrees (just my estimation, based on the amount of sweat I was producing!).
We took Rt 19, and detoured over to Hermann. Hermann was a cute old town, and, again, we would have enjoyed walking around, had it not been sweltering hot outside. The place looked almost like a ghost town, due to the lack of anyone out on the streets. Too darn HOT!!
Not to sound too whiney about the heat, because we still thoroughly enjoyed driving about and having a look at all of these nice places. But, when it gets that hot and humid, we also have to be super mindful of the dogs. After all, they’re 9.5 years old, and are wearing black fur coats. So, it’s a double whammy. They can’t be out in the hot sun very long, and it’s too hot to leave them in the RV. Just the nature of the beast when travelling with our best friends!
St. Charles, MO was our final destination of the day. We pulled in to the Sundermeier RV Park just as it started to drizzle, and just as the temperatures began to drop…finally!! By time we went to sleep, it was a nice cool 83 degrees. Everything is relative!
