By the way - STL Metro East? You're not across the river are you? Your survival tool might need to be a bit bigger if you are.
I love STL but mostly for its parks, museums and beer factories.
Well, that's not quite metro, now is it?I'm across the river, but not JUST across the river... I'm out in the country about 30 miles NE of downtown. Lived in the Overland / St. John area for about 10 years, though.
