Driven 610 miles today which brings it up to 2021 miles in Five days
Was up and check out of the Motel by 9am and drove to Graceland Manisons home of Elivs Presley to do the tour of his famous Manisons for $22, which was absolutely amazing to see and look around this amazing man's house. As he was not just good at his music but also in the community and the awards he go were huge. I spent 2 hours looking around the mansion and also spent so time at his gravestone as he is buried in the Graceland property. Then was back on the road and looking at the biggest drive of my week as I'm heading for Chapel Hill in North Carolina and looking at 735 miles or 10 an half hours. Was a good drive started at 12.30pm and it was around 79-82F all day, I had lunch in Memphis before I got on the road. On the way I stopped in Nashvillie for a pit stop and to fill the tank, then drove 320 miles to a little city called Morganton just inside the state-line of North Carolina. It took me 6 & half hour to drive through the state of Tennesse crossing the into North Carolina at 7pm and had to put the clock forward and hour cause I was now on the east coast time (8pm) driving into North Carolina an into the dark and through the Smokey Mountain National Park and on a very winding road, arriving at Morganton and Motel 8 at 9pm eastern time. Check in and had some food from the snack machine then was fast asleep.
