The Poker Trip: Arrival Tunica

I'm here and JESUS GAWD IS IT FLAT!

Some random thoughts:

I wondered why there was no interstate between Memphis and Birmingham. Apparently there will be in the near future. I-22. The good thing is most of the new highway is complete so you can drive pretty fast. The bad part it's completely desolate. The most desolate interstate I have ever seen. And yes Georgians, it is even worse than I-16. If you ever travel this way, before leaving Birmingham you need to gas up, go to the restroom and grab a cold drink. At one point I drove 70 miles without seeing a gas station. Hell! I didn't see anything at all!

Mississippi is not what I pictured until I got within about 30 miles of the river. It's mostly rolling hills and driving on a two lane backroad into the setting sun is an adventure. Then suddenly the hills ended and I was driving on a levee with fields on both sides. From there on it was flat, flat flat and probably what you picture in the movies.

After resting up for a while, I am going out to explore. Thanks for the many words of encouragement I had received today. We'll see where this goes but at least I'm here!

I was going to drive to Memphis but my plans changed, now it looks like for the better, who knew? I like I-16. You just need to know which potty stops to use and which to avoid - I keep this info in my head. Vidalia is one that comes to mind to avoid! Metter is kinda a fabulous one, you have to drive further but it's worth it. I don't know what all the fuss is about Dublin.
