Memphis, Tennessee

What a wonderful couple of days we have had.  The Natchez Trace Parkway is a MUST for all RV'ers.  I know we are blessed being here in the fall, with it's beautiful colors, but I am sure it is equally beautiful in the other seasons.  We stayed for three days at our free campground, and loved every minute.

We had rain one day, but that was fine by us, because we had so much to do inside anyway.  I was listening to music, and studying maps, and Teresa was writing out cards and letters.  Very relaxing, and fulfilling.

Around noon today, Teresa and I decided we needed showers, hot water, and most importantly, the Internet !!  So just like that, we were on the road again.

As we were driving on the NTP, we looked at each other, and said can you imagine a more perfect day, or a more perfect drive ?

We made one stop at Rock Spring today.  We would recommend this stop because it is only a 20 minute hike, but very interesting.

The spring feeds crystal clear water into a little pond, then down a small waterfall.

At Tupelo, we detoured off the Parkway, to make a trip to Memphis.  We are staying at the wonderful Yogi Bear Jellystone RV Park, and talk about culture shock.  This morning we were camped in dirt, with no hookups.  Tonight we are in a full service park, with water, sewer, electric, cable, WiFi, hot showers, and the cleanest laundry facility we have seen.

We are Passport America members, and so we only pay half price for our three days here.

I think we will do more of this.  One time rustic camping, then a few days of full hookups, to clean up and recharge. 

I guess it will be early to bed tonight, because Memphis has a lot of must see spots !!


  1. Ah, Memphis! Loved it! Things to check out there: Lorraine Motel Civil Rights Museum, Stax Records, Sun Records and the Peabody Hotel Duck Walk.

  2. Enjoy Memphis.
    Can't beat Passport America. Hope to head to one of the RV Parks in Ft Huachuca middle of the month. Tombstone Territory offers 7nights at half price now with PA. They have an in door pool, mini golf and so much more. And they are about 15 min. from Tombstone the town to tough to die.

    Have fun stay safe.
