On the Road Again!

Hubby was up early and had me out of bed at 7 AM!  By 8.09 AM we were on the road heading south!  It’s a wet, cold morning .. temps were 37 degrees when we pull out. 

001 002

Were almost in Missouri once we cross the bridge.


Welcome to Missouri, we stopped for fuel in Perryville .. diesel was $3.69 .. 30 cents a gallon cheaper then Illinois .. Yeppi


We run into a bit of rain, we were happy it was just a drizzle and nothing heavy

traffic isn’t bad on South bound on I – 55 but north bound is pretty heavy .. cops are out everywhere

Welcome to Arkansas, our 3rd state in one day.


As you can see the rain cleared up a bit and we only hit spots of drizzle or sprinkle


Tennessee is close approaching .. here we go across the bridge that puts us in Memphis

 017 018  

As you can see we hit rain again as we approached Tennessee.

021 022 

Welcome to Tennessee our 4th state of the day … hmmm i feel Graceland calling

024 025

It’s too cold to visit Graceland, now if we had been in our old car it would have automatically went to Elvis Presley Blvd .. hehe


Welcome to Mississippi our 5th state in one day .. WOW

 027 028

I love this welcome center in Mississippi .. i was thrilled to see they still had their fall decorations up as almost everyone else has Christmas already.  I love Fall colors and decorations and i feel that it gets cut short due to Christmas.  I love Christmas decorations and Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year due to it’s Jesus Christ birthday.  but, i do enjoy fall as well.

Here we are parked in the visitor center .. it’s drizzling rain and only 42 degrees!

we couldn’t even get the dogs to budge on going potty.  We asked if anyone needed to go and not one head raised to go .. hmmm

037   040 

As you can see we ran into more rain in Mississippi

  035 046 

It’s been a long day and I finally told hubby we had to stop for the night .. between all the riding, cold and rain my legs and feet were going numb, muscle spasms were getting worse and my behind was stinging and burning.  I know my body and it’s telling me time to head to bed!  So we found a Pilot in Canton, MS and found the only spot left.  Hubby got us backed in, turned on the generator and went and got us a bite to eat for dinner.  After 531 miles we finally chillin, hubby is watching Pittsburg and KC football game and I’m laying in bed. 

Life is so great .. I love having my home where ever i go.  When i get to feeling bad we can stop at any time and i can go to bed until i feel better.  The dogs are all nestled in for the night.  There is one other RV parked behind us.
