Thanks for the input. We are looking forward to the trip down the Mississippi from it's source to the gulf.

We might see you going the other way. We may be doing a piece or two of it between Memphis & a little N of STL.

Last summer we did the great river road from Louisiana, MO up river to the source at lake Itasca. Now this spring we will go back to Louisiana, MO and turn south where we will follow the Mississippi all the way to it's delta south of New Orleans.

We have driven the whole Skyline drive and Blue Ridge Parkway, the Natchez Trace, the Oregon Trail, the Lewis and Clark expedition at least to Three Forks, MT where the Missouri River starts. These have all been great adventures.

X2 on wadcutter advice about taking I-255. Look up Grafton, IL tourism, Aerie's winery website, the drive south from Grafton to Alton is beautiful. If you have a truck, toad or very small rv take a drive through Elsah, Il it is just south of Grafton. Historic village tucked in the bluff. I don't think Pere Marquette SP campground is on Reserve America. Electric, fill your water tank. The lodge is very nice, rustic. There is a nice museum by the Alton lock and dam, further in Hartford there is a tall observation tower where the Missouri and Mississippi river meet. Down the road is the Lewis & Clark State Historic site.
Safe travels, Marcia
