Yes. I have been there many times. I have been inside at the top as well. There is construction at the Gateway Arch grounds right now, though.

I'm trying to post a pic of my bike right now. Shocked

WelKome to the site.

I got my MBA at Wash U so I spent a couple of years living in St. Louis many moons ago.

Yes, it is a nice view of downtown. The pod ride up to the top leaves a bit to be desired.

Thanks for all the kind words.

Duck gets around. MBA at Washington University, a top school in the country. Cheers on that. You are no dummy, that's for sure. I see his avatar everywhere and he even lived in St. Louis for a few years. I am located in the county, not technically the city of St. Louis.

I've been to Misery oopps I mean Missouri. All I can remember it was bloody hot.
I did enjoy going into the Big Bass Store in Springfield.

BTW Welcome to the Knuthouse from the land down under.

Misery is about right. The heat and humidity will make newcomers never return. It's only for 3 months or so. Sometimes more. It is unbearable to those not used to it. We have a few weeks of Spring and Fall between Summer and Winter. It is a nice Fall day today. The blazing heat may have just ended.

Springfield is nice. You could have went a bit more south to Tablerock Lake, Branson and Lake of the Ozarks for a bit more fun if you like fishing and boating.

Last year I didn't have to shovel snow from my driveway. This year, probably 10 feet of snow.

Cheers

Yeah, when I first showed up in September there I was ready to turn around and go home. At the time not all cars came with A/C and mine didn't have it so my car was like a sauna on overload in that hot humid weather.

I didn't mind the snow except that there was no place to go skiing.

You're right about the heat. I traveled from Lextington KY to Eagle Rock Mo by car. It was on that trip I found I had an intense hatred of grits. I can remember going up the Big Arch, fantastic view from the top.
