Day 33 – Arrived in Memphis, TN

Today was a long, rainy day of driving. The rain followed us the whole way from Mammoth to Memphis.

This cool bug was on our camper when we woke up. Stick bugs are cool! I saved him from a horrible journey of clinging to the camper while cruising down the interstate.

We stopped in the Memphis visitors center to see if they had any tips and deals for our brief stay in the city. We purchased a package that included tickets to Graceland, Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum, and the Gibson Guitar Factory Tour.
It was a really good deal, only $50 for all three.
The campground we reserved was T.O. Fuller State Park.
By the time we got to the campground it was too late to go out to the Downtown area so we decided to get a RedBox video and stay in for the evening.
This campground is not in a good neighborhood, but once you get to it you would never know what is surrounding you. We were one of only 3 other campers there too. I usually feel pretty safe while camping but I didn’t here….at least I have mace, I brought on the trip for a possible bear encounter.
Tomorrow we’ll explore the city and get some much anticipated BBQ!
