Adventures in Missouri

We were hanging out in some little town southwest of St Louis when we started talking to a couple outside a cafe. It turned out they were cyclists too, and had flown their cub planes to a local airfield (a mowed section of cornfield) to get lunch in town. They offered to take us up, so Cat, Christine, and myself each got a 15 minute ride in the back.

A mile down the road we came across a county fair where we spent the rest of the day. Families raised pigs, chickens, and cows, and then they were auctioned off for charity. Below is a 9 year old manhandling a full grown pig at the auction. 

And a hamburger on legs

After the auction was a destruction derby. Coolest thing ever. 🇺🇸🇺🇸
The photo doesn't do it justice. An area slightly smaller than a football field was packed with more than a dozen junkyard cars that rammed the snot out of each other for 30 minutes. And then they did it again with more cars. They county fairs in Missouri are pretty awesome. 

And this gem
