Saturday - August 21, 1982 - 10:00am
10:00 am C.D.T. - Left Topeka.
11:15 am C.D.T. - Stopped at the Truman Library in Indendence, MO. The library is a very personal view of Truman. It didn't delve to deeply into his political decisions. Harry S. Truman had a strong hand in the libraries development.
1:00 pm C.D.T. - We're rolling again.
2:00 pm C.D.T. - Stopped at Stuckey's for ice cream. Only made us hungrier. Decided to drive straight through to St. Louis.
5:00 pm C.D.T. - Arrived at motel. Larry didn't like the room because it faced the runway. So the moved us into a room whose rug had just been shampooed. This room was a disaster. The air conditioner control was broken so you either had it on or off. The sink faucet had no filter so when you turned on the water you also took a bath. Considering there was no tub in this bathroom, it was quite an accomplishment.
