  48. I live in Missouri but also had Kentucky as another state on the road trip. I spent many summers there visiting my aunt and uncle and running wild;) Missouri has the arch and LOTS of excellent food inventions--gooey butter cake, ravioli, waffle cones. Kentucky is big on horse racing. Many of my aunt and uncles neighbors had pastures with thoroughbreds and I learned to ride bareback AND how to run and jump on a horse---a small one of course;)
