Where are we today ?
Got up later than usual today 5:am, compute, coffee, walkabouts in the rain waiting for it to stop. No stopping, so we just secured stuff and hooked up in the rain and on the road shortly before 9am.
Have a rather long day ahead of us but not a problem, raining all day anyway. So took our time and got to the Walmart just east of Memphis about 3:30pm. Stopped for lunch and two fuel stops along the way too, just so we we would have a full tank on Sunday.
Today our coach hit a milestone (Happy Birthday Coach! no we do not have a name for our house.) 100,000 miles on the odometer and happened as we passed thru, Little Rock Arkansas. Still running strong, guess the maintenance pays off!
This is the roads below, we saw all day long, overcast and raining, but no big deal, at least it was not snow or ice. Figures, thou just washed our coach two days ago!

Crossed over the Mississippi River into Tennessee and first spotted the Pyramid in Memphis, impressive and is now a sports complex.
After our second fuel stop today, at the Flying J in West Memphis another 30 minutes and we are at the Walmart just off 1-40. We phoned ahead to see if they allow overnight parking and no problem, just park by the garden center.The entrance has a bar to prohibit trucks, so we just turned right towards Sam's club and passed by the front of the store to the Garden center, no problem !
|no truck allowed!|
Got our nice spot picked out by the edge of the parking lot allowing us to open our slide. (Not that we need to). Then proceded to do a bit of shopping, managed to spend more than $40.00 on stuff we needed, much better than spending that on parking in a campground for the night. And this Walmart was a zoo today!

Just wanna thank y'all for stopping by again and travelling along with us.
Hope you have a very nice Easter Sunday and good weather to boot!
