Now you go through St. Louie


Made our way up from Memphis to St Louis today, really nice weather all the way along with some very odd place names 🙂
We saw a mileage sign post when we stopped for lunch which brought home how far we have actually travelled !!
Our Hotel in St Louis is near the Ballpark, Riverfront and the Arch, we had a nice meal down on the Riverfront.
Last leg into Chicago tomorrow…

Walking in Memphis


We had another really great day today !

Our travels today covered Graceland, Sun Studios and the Lorraine Motel amongst others.

The weather was very good once again, we will go out for a meal and listen to some music in Beale Street, which is already busy and full of Harleys as it is “bike night”

Off to St Louis tomorrow.


What a great day !!


We drove down from Springfield through the Ozarks and arrived at Memphis at around 14:30 local time, a drive of around five hours as no interstate was involved. The weather was glorious all the way and we had a Wal Mart on the move lunch at 65mph or so 🙂

Quite sad over here today as all the flags were at half mast for 911.

Memphis so far is brilliant, we have seen the march of the ducks at the Peabody (see the video) and we had a good look around Beale St. Yes we are off to Graceland tomorrow for the VIP tour (got to really :-)) We will then try and fit in Sun Studios and the Lorraine Motel as we are here for two days.

More tomorrow !!

P.S. I have adjusted the time of the blog to US time as things were appearing a day early under UK time.
