Summer Road Trip - Day 10

It's the final day of our contest! Monday we were at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri and the first correct guess came from the OP Pack! Congrats pups! The arch was pretty nice, but it was hotter than two Siberians could stand there. Mom wanted a picture of us sitting nicely at the base of the Arch and this is what she got. We were too hot to sit.

Let's check the map!

We are going to change the grand prize contest a bit since we have only received a couple guesses for our final destination grand prize and those guesses weren't even close. We have decided to give away two more $10 prizes instead of one $20 grand prize. Anyone who has left a comment on any of our road trip posts and hasn't won a prize yet will be entered into a drawing for a $10 Happy Hearts gift certificate and we will pick two winners from the drawing. We will email out the gift certificates to all winners next week (in case you have won and wondered what happened to your prize).

So now for our final secret location picture. We are on the grounds of the only university in the United States to be a designated World Heritage Site. What city are we in?

Note: Don't let the letters on the steps behind us throw you off. If they mean anything, we don't know what that might be, so it's not critical to figuring out the clue.

Thanks everyone for your patience with the delay of this last post. We had been using Dad's iPad for all of our travel blogging and on Tuesday morning, the iPad decided to forget that it has a sim card and it will no longer connect to the internet via 3G. We finally got Mom to go to a Starbucks so she could post this using their WiFi.

We will give everyone until 6PM Pacific Time tomorrow night to guess today's secret location. We will post the winner of today's secret location as well as the two winners from the drawing on Saturday. We will also let you know why we were tortured with a 3000+ mile road trip!

Well, I am not eligible for the final prize because I know where you are going.

Since I won a daily prize though, can you please just get Gerri to send my $10 worth of cookies to Zimmie? Please ask her to send the Huffle cookie in whatever is Zim's favourite flavour. Gerri should know that information :)

Ok - that was weird. Our comment did not go through (we think).

We have discovered that sometimes the 3G gets a little wonky. You either have to shut down and re-boot the iPad OR reset the wireless settings. Sometimes you just get this "no wireless signal" thing.
