Bledsoe 2012 Western Tour travel blog

We left Little Rock under skies filled with light wispy clouds, our first in memory. Still warm but now with just a little humidity. We had a driving goal in mind of somewhere around Hurricane Mills, Loretta Lynn's home.

It didn't take but two hours to leave Arkansas and cross into Tennessee at Memphis. We stopped at the impressive Welcome Center where they proudly display statues of two of their more famous citizens, B.B. King and, of course, Elvis. The Welcome Center is right next to Mud Island and the Pyramid. We'd like to have stayed longer but we did have a goal today that wouldn't allow the time.

We rolled thru the Natchez Trace with its magnificent fall foliage and got to Hurricane Mills. It just seemed a little early to stop for the day, in spite of having driven nearly five hours. We pressed on, heading for Nashville.

Quite ironically the radio was playing the Lovin' Spoonful's hit "Nashville Cats" as we came into the Music City. Right at the time for working folks to head home we chose to stay at yet another KOA just north of the city. A little tired but glad we had taken the extra time to drive here. We're now within a day's drive of home and Becky's getting a little anxious to lay in a bathtub and sleep on her memory foam mattress in WV. So that's our goal tomorrow, make it to Huntington.
