A travel blog entry by helenskib


This morning, Anita got up and took me for a tour of Atlanta Motor Speedway, then to Thad and Chaya's new house. Then it was off to Memphis! I went thru a bunch of states. Memphis traffic SUCKS. I had a terrible time finding the hotel - had to all and get additional directions - I would have NEVER found it otherwise. And the only restaurants in the …
