    Can we tour a prison afterwards?


    I can't hear the noise in your head. Please keep it that way.

    This is looking way fun, Mary!

    I wonder if the Arch will let us park our cars at the base for a group photo?

    Never hurts to ask!

    Not likely. Since 9-11, they have installed concrete highway divider blocks to keep a nut from trying to do damage!!! But will ask! (It is part of the U.S. National Park System).

    It would be a cool shot, especially from a helicopter.

    If the Mississippi is down, we can line up at the bottom of the stairs . If not, there is a plaza just west of the Arch where we can get a shot of the cars, the Old Courthouse and the Arch all in one shot!

    View is like this!

    I won't be able to make it this time, but I have been to the Transportation Museum and Fast Lane. Both are worth seeing, especially with an appreciative group like a bunch of Marauders!

    This looks really good, but I'm afraid my back will not be able to withstand a 1,000 mile trip each way.

    Wife can't get the time off and what fun would it be with out the DTR? I don't think I'll have the annual leave credits either. I've had to burn quite a bit recently due to a family illness out of town. Thats also how I ended up with the yellow bomber. $700+ on gas last month made me ill

    can we get some video set up in their valet lot?, then have 150 marauders show up and use the valet. the video of the resulting confusion would be awesome.
