We made the 3 hour run to Memphis and arrived at Graceland RV Park at 11 a.m. With the temps in the upper 80's and high humidity it felt like summer now. We got setup quick and walked over to the Elvis museum to do the Platinum tour. Elvis was a little before my time and I never really got into his music. When I was younger I had seen a few of his movies and I once dated a girl who's mother had taken over their entire living room with a shrine to Elvis. That was pretty much the extent of my Elvis knowledge other than the bits and pieces you catch on radio and tv about him. I must say I really enjoyed the tour, and it's a shame he died so young. We toured the house, the car museum, the planes and a few other exhibits. I plan to check out the documentary on his life when we get home.
I must say Memphis surprised me, it seems like a really cool city with some very interesting history.
