Well here we go. Started the day at about 7am, hit I-30 for a three day cruise (sung to the sound of Gilligan’s Island) to D.C. Today we covered 550 miles and ended up in Jackson TN for the evening. Nice ride today, got to stop in Arkadelphia to see Morgan for about 2.5 minutes (she had to go to class – 1 month left till graduation). Julie and I stayed on campus and ate at the Student Center, Chick-Fil-A, good stuff. The ride to Little Rock was no problem at all, and really things were good till just west of Memphis.
I dream that on day we will ride east into Memphis and the road construction on the bridge and east of town on I-40 will be completed, I know I ask too much, but a guy can dream. Well after a 5 MPH trip over the river, The Old Man, Deep Water, The mighty Mississippi we headed out of town on 40 east, again at 5 MPH, ok I am kidding the traffic east of town was not too bad.
Tomorrow we plan to ride through the rest of Tennessee and into Virginia. We have less than 800 miles left until we hit D.C. looking forward to it.
