We left YVR early, our flight was gone by 9 AM ish and we were on our way. First stop was Dallas Fort Worth a short 3 1/2 hours later. Pretty uneventful flight.
In Dallas, Barry and I were lucky enough to get upgraded to 1st class, which made the short 59 min flight very enjoyable. But only after the flight was delayed a short period of time while they located a Dog that was suppose to be on the flight with us. Found the dog and we were on our way.
It was interesting sitting in the first row of the aircraft as people talked to us as they were coming on board. Some were coming from a weekend of Nascar racing and were still pretty pumped up about the whole event.
Memphis has a very small airport. Or at least what we saw of it was pretty small. We got our bags and hopped on the bus to get to the rental car location to pick up our car. We got a muscle car! Driving a new Dodge Charger Ooo, ooo, ooo. We’re style’n now!
Plugged in the hotels address to the GPS and we were there in about 15 min. Settled in to the hotel and kicked back for a 90 min or so then headed out for some food. Decided to check Trip Advisor for a good place to eat. We went to the #1 place in Memphis – Gus’ World Famous Fried Chicken. OK, so it is a hole in the wall, but it has GREAT chicken. Yum. Not WW friendly, but really really good.
After the Chicken we scouted out a connivence store so we could stock up on some beverages and snacks as our room has a fridge for us to use. And we don’t want it to go to waste. That was an bit of an adventure, not sure we really found the right neighbourhood, but we got our stuff and made it back to the hotel in one piece.
Back at the room, writing, Barry is working on his stocks and I am going to go to bed. Tomorrow Graceland!
