Memphis Tennessee, Home of Elvis and the Blues.

Thursday, April 22, 9:42 Am

The Kings await, Elvis and B.B

Memphis Tennessee, Home of Elvis and the Blues. We choose to travel the back roads avoiding interstates as much as possible, it takes longer to get to your destination but the back roads are where you find America.

If you want to get a true reading of how the people of our country think, turn off the TV and get out among the people, traveling the back roads is the best way to do it.

Our destination is Memphis Tennessee, everyone is an Elvis fan they want to see Graceland and everything Elvis, I’m an Elvis fan also however my heart belongs to the blues, I’m excited to visit Beal Street well known as the Birthplace of the blues.

A hard lesson learned

With merry hearts and high expectations, we head out on the road. We would be leaving the flatlands of the delta and soon would be back in the steep hill country, that’s why I drained all of the water out of my camper holding tank the day before, that was a mistake.

The problem was my camper is a toy hauler, I have two Harleys strapped down in the back, which equals a lot of weight in the rear of the camper. Without the added weight of the water up front, my load was off-balance and made it difficult to drive, not only difficult but dangerous. So after a couple of semis nearly blowing me off the road I found a convenience store, I connected my water hose to the faucet and added water back into the tank.

 This may seem irrelevant if you have a standard camper trailer, the weight is more evenly distributed throughout the camper, however, with a toy hauler, you must add weight to the front via the freshwater holding tank to balance out the load. The rest of the trip went smoothly, we found our campground, it was good to be at our new home. Tom Sawyer RV Park West Memphis Arkansas.

Tug boats are awesome


The last couple of days have been intermittent rain, the heaviest rain was during the early morning hours of the 24th, it woke me up at 2:30 Am, it was coming down so hard it sounded like a tug boat from the river was coming through the camper. On the bright side, we made a pot of chicken soup and settled down for a restful day of watching movies.

The Mississippi River is an awesome sight to see, tug boats and barges pass by the campground several times a day, we never get tired of watching them push such huge loads upstream with a very swift current.

Beal street

Unless your a blues freak like me you may have not heard of Beal street, however, if you know where your standing, it feels a bit like sacred ground.

A young man by the name of Riley King got his name from this street, Until he changed his name he was known as the Beal Street Blues Boy. You know him better as BB King.

I know what your thinking, No Graceland? Not this trip, unfortunately, the price they want you to pay just to walk around the grounds is ridiculous, that’s my opinion, and I’m sticking to it.

We didn’t go out to any restaurants while in the area, we enjoyed spending time at the campground and taking our meals at home, so no reviews this time. Enjoy the Pics from Beal street, we’ll see you a little further down the road.
