This is the second post today, but now I am up-to-date.
I left Cape Girardeau yesterday morning and arrived here at West Memphis around 1:00 p.m. I chose this campground and this campsite because it sits right on the edge of the Mississippi River. I can watch the towboats pushing their cargo up and down river right from my campsite. A boat with barges passes by about every 30 minutes. It is very relaxing. I have no plans to see or explore anything else in the area, just relaxing.
Bad weather is scheduled to come through the area tonight. If it comes through early enough and doesn't cause any damage I plan to leave tomorrow morning and head west.
