We’re staying at the Graceland RV Park very handy for all of Memphis and with a weekly rate it’s $30 a night, so quite affordable.
We met Dieter and Christel from Germany at the campground.
Yes there IS a Heartbreak Hotel
Graceland is a big item on my personal Bucket List. I wasn’t a huge Elvis fan when I was a kid, I was too young when he rose to fame. My sister Beryl was and I think still is an Elvis fan, she’s jealous that we’ve made it here and she hasn’t.

Elvis's pink Cadillac
Memphis has far more than just Elvis however. The Blues, Sun Records, The Lorraine Motel/Civil Rights Museum, Beale Street, Memphis Barbecue, The Mississippi River. The list goes on and on.
The Bass Pro pyramid store
This one has it's own hotel and TWO restaurants.
Our task is to see as much as we can!
Home of the blues
And the bar with the most craft beers!
Lots of places for ribs, music and booze.
Our friends Karen and Paul told about the best ribs in Memphis

They don't advertise, they have no need too!

We’ve been drifting for the last couple of months. No set places to be or dates to meet. That’s beginning to change. Our Daughter Sally is definitely coming to Maryland in mid June. Barbara’s cousins in Ontario Canada are arranging a family get together at the end of June. The Escapees Rally in Vermont is at the end of July and we have definite reservations made for the winter in Florida with our friends Harold and Wanda.
Some careful planning has to be done for Memorial Day weekend and the July 4th weekend in the US plus Canada Day July 1st as campgrounds fill up early for the long weekends.
We’ve suddenly gone planning crazy!!
