After staying in the parking lot at Nascar....I mean Wal-Mart we headed out at about 6 am towards Memphis. Kids kept sleeping until we arrived at Graceland. As we approached Memphis, we noticed the signs on the bridges read "Bridge Might Ice In Cold Weather". After fueling (an hour later), we found our way to Graceland. We got cleaned up a smidge and went right over to the "King's" house. Pretty impressive person when you see all of the gold, platinum, etc records all in one place. The house itself he bought for $1,000 and is about 5,000sf with 3.5 acres and a pool. Nice place. It was kept as it was when he last updated it in the 70's. Perfect retro. The kids really got into this Elvis craze. His airplane and cars were a hit. We returned to our temporary home to clean up and get ready for the pink limo to pick us up and bring us to Marlow's (free service) best BBQ in town (aren't they all?) But this one really did have some of the best BBQ we have ever had and possibly the best waitress we ever had! We tried fried green tomatoes for the first time....very tasty! The limo brought us back to our RV and we hoped into the PT to find Beale St. Stopped into Peabody's hotel to catch the ducks, but we missed them. Nice hotel though. Had some ice cream @ Hard Rock and went home to watch an Elvis movie we had bought earlier in the day. Wamoo! The TV shut off and we had no power! Again! Went to bed and decided to wait and see what we wanted to do tomorrow.
