Where I stayed
What I did
Fred had a very emotional moment in this building, and I have to admit visiting his home and seeing and listening to him is a very overwhelming experience. My thoughts are that he was a very simple soul who liked to keep his family and friends close, loved to play music, gave a lot of money away to those who needed his help and didn't really want too much more
We also got to see his car collection and his private jet, which was really something. Even if you weren't an Elvis fan you'd still be blown away by a visit to Graceland.We had lunch back at the park before setting off for Nashville. We arrived at Jellystone RV Park at 4.30pm had a swim then took a shuttle into Nashville.
Yee Ha! I loved Nashville, it was alive and kicking. We stayed on Broadway St as there is no cover charge to go into the bars on that street. I can't even guess at the number of bars and restaurants there are on both sides of the street all playing live music, it was pumping and the beer was cheap. Loved the shops selling all the western gear, met a few parties of girls on a Hen's night all dressed up in their best cowgirl outfits
25/8/13 Virginia - Wytheville RV Park
Ever since Mississippi the countryside has been green, and as we crossed the county line from Tennessee into Virginia it's become even greener. Lovely rolling hills with picture perfect farm houses. There are places where you might even think you were in England.There's not a lot to write about today, we had a pit stop in Knoxville and that was about it. Matt was very excited about a street called Gay St.We have almost come full circle, we started our camping trip back in the Yosemite National Park where we were reminded about not having food in the tent because of bears. Since then we have been mindful of coyotes, bob cats, mountain lions, tarantulas and scorpions. It appears we are back to being mindful about bears again. We've been told to lock away food as they do have unwanted visitors to the park, basically we are not home and dried just yet. Oh! forgot to mention we've come across a few black widow spiders in the process of putting up our tents. Nice!
