En Route to Las Vegas – Day 3

By February 3, 2004 road trips

Miles driven: 1623.4
Hours spent in car today: 8.5 Total: 26.5
States covered today: Arkansas, Oklahoma
Stupidest thing seen today: A run-down white shack off Elvis Presley Blvd. in Memphis with a sign that read, “World Famous Hernando’s Hideaway”
Funniest billboards today: An orange Chick-fil-a billboard with the cows dressed in orange construction vests that read, “Rode Closed 2 Burger Traffik” and the one for the Pig Out Palace All-You-Can Eat Buffet & Grill
Stupidest things said today: “Road work next 39 miles? Oh, no, next 3 point 9 miles.” “So, what’s that? A mudflat?” “I don’t think I’m going to eat today. We’re fat. We need to fast.”
Best part of the day: Crossing the Mississippi River and listening to the radio in Arkansas – they bleep out the word ‘damn’ in the Milkshake song, they advertise weed-killer for wild garlic, and everything seems to be located in downtown Stuttgart
Worst part of the day: Graceland is closed on Tuesdays, and driving through the utterly boring state of Arkansas
Current location: Oklahoma City, OK
Miles to Las Vegas: approximately — actually, not sure at this point
