Day 4... We rolled our first thousand miles yesterday and right now we are 360 into our next thousand. We checked out memphis on our way to arkansas took a total of 1Hr 11 mins . But beal st was cool kinda like a little burbon st. the street was filled with bars, eaterys, and blues for about 2 blocks. Then back in the car for 3 hrs to little rock. What a flat boring drive saw farms, crop dusters, and 18 wheelers. Got into little rock around 8 checked in to the comfort inn in the downtown area. They had a movie playing down by the river market district, lots of families out and about 3 blocks of bars and restaurants that were really alive on a random wed. night. we ended up at ernie briggs, a cool little piano bar with dollar beers, can't go wrong with that! Slept in till around 9 and filled up on free breakfast ... Thanks comfort inn! Walked around little rock in the oppressive heat to look for a LR sticker and the "little rock". After an Hr of searching and coming up short on both accounts we decided to hit the road. So now we are back in the car on a 9Hr drive through oklahoma to our planned stop in amarillo texas.
