Day 3 in St. Louis

Breakfast at the Truck Stop? Yep, nothing beats the Travel America 24-hour buffet near Floristell (just before Wentzville exit).
Made a stop in Fulton, Mo, to fulfill my long-time wish of visiting the Winston Churchill Museum at Westminster College. Churchill was invited here by Pres. Truman in 1946 and gave his "Iron Curtain" speech.

The church setting is also incredible because it was designed by Christopher Wren, then bombed and damaged in London, and finally restored and rebuilt on this campus. Completed another Boy Scout patch here but no pressed penny souvenirs.
