Yes, you read that right, we are doing all of this in 9 days.
We aren’t taking the RV on this trip, as much as I’d prefer it, the cost would simply be too much for fuel. Estimated cost for 1,800 miles is around $1,070.00 in gas money, the time has come that the hotel is going to be cheaper than staying in the RV. Between RV park costs and gas we’ll save money by driving the car. Enough that it makes no sense to use the rig, which makes me sad.
We’re starting out at home after work soon, no dates given since there are some people who come here that may not have the best intentions, better safe than sorry. So we’ll post the dates when we return home. Where was I, oh yeah, we’ll be leaving when I get home from work and we’ll drive to Hannibal MO, go for a walk through the town, check out Tom and Becky’s house and then we’ll eat there, spend the night and then head to the Ozarks for part of a day to see the sights and take pictures.
After the Ozarks we head to my Dad’s place and spend a night there and then head down to Memphis where Ronda will be in Elvis nirvana for 5 days and I will likely never want to hear his voice again after. We’re staying at the Heartbreak Hotel, hopefully not in room 214 which I have read hears the 24x7 songs by Elvis playing outside the room. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll enjoy the Elvis car museum, his planes and Graceland itself but as for Elvis, just another guy to me who had some good songs and some really terrible songs, but Ronda LOOOVVVEESSSS him.
The Heartbreak hotel has gotten good reviews but many people state it needs new carpet etc and their wireless never works. Overall people like the place and give it a pass because it’s so close to Graceland, we’ll see when we get there! Ronda has made plans for everything we’ll be doing there so I’ll be taking a lot of pictures and some video! My wife is counting the days she is so excited!
