Day 16: Mizzou and local cuisine but no iPhone

I’m currently on a 5,000 mile road trip through 15 states with Cecily. The following is an excerpt from today’s post on our blog,

Today we took the very rare opportunity to sleep in a little bit, then headed to Columbia, Missouri, home of Megan’s alma mater, the University of Missouri. Along the way we both agreed that Missouri’s system of labeling their state highways with letters instead of numbers is so weird. Seriously, we saw signs that instructed us to take VV and Y to Emma. That just does not make sense.

Megan also experienced a series of disappointments. First off, her favorite Chinese place of all time apparently burned to the ground in her absence. The world’s best crab rangoon will never be eaten again. Luckily, she was able to recover a little bit with lunch at another favorite local place, Murry’s. From the first time she discovered their steak “sandwich” – which is actually just an amazing 8 ounce cut of meat on top of two pieces of garlic bread – she has been hooked. She lowered her expectations just in case, but that steak was just as fantastic as she remembered.
