... Mississippi River at Memphis. A big shout out of thanks to the two ladies at the welcome center in Arkansas. They told us about construction on I-40 and gave us an alternate route to Little Rock. Saved us having another hour wasted sitting in construction traffic.
As we approached Little Rock we drove through a thunder storm with the rain so heavy that visibility was reduced to about ...
