It's a Wrap

Well, our road trip to the South is complete.  It was a great time, particularly nice to be able to spend it with my parents and Carol.

In the end we did over 2000 miles of driving. Hitting (or at least touching) the following states - Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois.  By far and away our two favorites were Tennessee and Kentucky.

For me, the top moments / stops were:
  1. Our power day of Graceland and the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis.
  2. Beale Street in Memphis and listening to blues at BB King's and Jerry Lee Lewis' bars.
  3. Shiloh National Battlefield.
  4. Touring the Buffalo Trace and Woodford Distilleries.
  5. Wilson's Creek National Battlefield.
  6. Independence Missouri and Harry Truman's home.
I'll update this posting some time tomorrow with a link to where all of the pictures can be found.
