West of the Mississippi

Just before we crossed the Mighty Mississippi River, we went to Graceland and boy do they know how to grab your money...but if I had a money spinner like that I probably would do the same thing.

At least I went there, the last time I went Elvis was still alive and in residence....unfortunately the day Kathi and I went from New Albany to Memphis to see the mansion, Elvis happened to drive through New Albany and stop at a local store.....

Now we are heading out the old Route 66 all the way west. We made good time so we passed Little Rock. where we planned to stop, and drove to Fort Smith, so we made it all the way across Arkansas.

Tomorrow we drive across Oklahoma and Texas and into New Mexico and if we make good time we might make it into Arizona. If that happens to all those that scoffed at my itinerary...we will be 2 days ahead of the plan....

We will see what happens...
