Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On

I think that is what Merlin and Benji clearly thought, since the RV tends to be a bit noisy every time we hit rough roads and bridge crossings. But now we are in Elvis territory.

Smith Lake, AL

Jackie and Benji on Pride Rock?

We made it to Memphis today, about to have dinner with friends (our first of many BBQ meals I think). Last night was spent at Clear Creek Campground on Smith Lake outside Birmingham. Nice spot, only one other camper on our loop. We stopped to fill up on gas in Tupelo, MS at a wallet-happy $1.81 per gallon, only to see $1.77 per gallon at the Kroger gas across the road from our spot in Southaven. Hey, at least it is heading in the right direction!!


Really just a drive by …



Elvis at the Welcome Center

We got here in good time, traveling across some beautiful rolling hills in Alabama and Mississippi with little to no traffic. Had time to play tourists and did a drive-by of Graceland (not exactly the neighborhood you expect) and stopped in Bass Pro’s theme park in the Pyramid. Quite an imaginative store, with lodge rooms built in (shop, drop, sleep and shop some more?).

Ok, now that’s a bar! Inside Bass Pro.

Drove along the Mississippi River on our way back to camp. Tomorrow we head upriver to St. Louis.
