I'm addicted to travel too - and also an engineer who gets to travel for work, unfortunately, not out of the country (unless you count the thousands of frequent flier miles that I get to use for personal travel!)

I was in St. Louis a couple weeks ago and went up in the arch. I just thought I'd mention something I learned that others might want to know. The elevator cars are very small and not air-conditioned and you are in it with 4 other people. At 6'1, I'm not sure I would have gone if I had known. The ride is short - only a couple of minutes, but on the way up, one of my fellow passengers was claustrophobic and not very happy.

Currently in Tennessee, Marguerite
