Tupelo Mississippi

Well, we really didn't want to leave Memphis, but it is still cold at nights, so we knew we had to get further south.

We made a bee-line for the Natchez Trace Parkway, so we could complete our tour of it.

But we didn't get too far, before we made a stop at Tupelo, the birth place of Elvis Presley.

If it looks like I was freezing, it was because I WAS !!

Elvis sure did come from humble beginnings. 

The bedroom where Elvis was born, along with his twin brother who sadly, was still-born

It sure didn't take too long to tour this is only 2 rooms...the bedroom and the kitchen.

The guide went on to say that the family couldn't afford to continue living in this house, and were forced to move in with kin-folk !!
By the way, the tour for this house is a very reasonable 5 bucks each.

They have moved the church where Elvis and his family attended, on to the same grounds as the house.  There is also a museum and garden area, all donated by Elvis.

After spending our time at the Elvis Park, we ran out of time, so we are parked up at WalMart for the night.

Tomorrow we are continuing on the Natchez Trace Parkway, with our noses pointed SOUTH !!


  1. When I'm finally able to get on the road again you can be assured it will be no stopping until Arizona !! LOL

  2. Keep heading south a bit cooler yesterday and today but warming up again. Enjoy the Trace.

  3. I guess we'll meet up some where in Texas - funny we are at the same level in the USA both making our way south - we will be north of San Antonio area and then probably the coast.....would be great to get together!
