Roadtrip: Georgia to Arizona, 2nd Day

We woke up earlier than we wanted to this morning, thanks to the camper next door cranking up his muffler needing truck and letting it run for 10 minutes before roaring off down the road somewhere around 6:15 a.m. After spending an hour or so drinking coffee and reading emails and news, we got on the  road pretty early.

I saw this cute little doggie just sitting in clover on the side of the road when we stopped for fuel,. He just looked so happy sitting there:

We stopped for breakfast in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Olive Branch, Mississippi. I cooked up some sausage, eggs, and toast before getting on the road again. It wasn’t long before we crossed the state line into Tennessee:

And then just a few short miles later we crossed the Mississippi River into Arkansas:

I love bridges! I especially love this bridge and always take as many pictures of it as I can while we are crossing over it.

So far, we are getting really good mileage with the rig–13.8 miles per gallon. We stopped for fuel at Flying J in Russellville, Arkansas, where diesel fuel was $4.039 per gallon. That is lower than it was in Georgia, where we saw it for $4.219 per gallon on I-20 last week.

We stopped for the night at Mission RV Park in Russellville, Arkansas. Tomorrow, we’ll go half way to Shamrock, Texas, wherever that might be.
