Mississippi to Tennessee

Morning-42F (6C) 6:30 a.m.
Afternoon-72F (22C)

Here's a photo just so you know that sometimes I do get up for sunrise. Anyway, no walk this morning. Instead I started getting prepared for us to leave on another leg of our journey home.



We left Grenada Lake COE park around 9:40 a.m. under bright sunny skies and 54F (12C). We were sorry to leave.

The road north

Now in Tennessee

Interesting artwork at the Welcome Center at Memphis


Going through Memphis


I noticed that the trees in Tennessee aren't as green as Mississippi so we knew we were travelling north (east). We had an uneventful trip and arrived at Tanbark Campground at Dickson, TN about 2:20 p.m. and were set up shortly after 3 p.m. They have free wifi here so no dishes were set up. We get a few TV stations so I'm hopeful for ABC so I can watch Lost tonight. This is also a Passport America park. It isn't great but the site is paved though not level.

The road northeast

The Tennessee River

Interesting name for a town - where are you from? Oh, I'm from Bucksnort.

We were originally going north to Illinois then east to Kentucky but Gordon changed his mind last night. This is a shorter route and it looks like it won't be as rainy as it would have been in IL.

After set up, we went out to get fuel so we can be on the road early tomorrow. We've got a long day!
