So tired...

Joel and I pulled into West Memphis, Arkansas, about 8pm. Saying it was a long day doesn't make the travel any easier. It rained almost all day. There were times when it rained so hard you could hardly see. A phrase that was repeated multiple times during the day was, "I'm so glad we didn't ride down! I'd have turned around and headed home hours ago."

It has come to our attention that West Memphis is considered by some to be a seedy neighborhood. It's a little too late to do anything about it now, and it doesn't look all that seedy under cover of night up here by the highway.

As for the weather, things do look better from here on out. We should have sunshine and warmth tomorrow. By the time we start riding around on Friday, it will actually be HOT!

It's getting late; the lack of sleep last night and the long day of driving in bad weather have got me plumb tuckered out (the two Benadryl I took a little while ago might be helping a little, too.)

We have six more hours of driving before we reach our destination. Let's just hope our bikes and my truck are still together and in the parking lot in the morning. :)

  1. How close are you to the tornadoes down there? Most of my southern friends camped out in their basement last night. I can't imagine driving through it.

    Stay safe!

  2. Aha! So East St. Louis and West Memphis have something in common -- Scary!

    Hope your rest was sweet, vehicles are safe and ready for the road, and that you will drive into the sunshine today!
