Tellico Plains to Memphis.

Day 6.
443 miles.

Too much fun last night made me get a really late start this morning. I left around noon. Buck suggested that I take Highway 68 to the 40 and it turned out to be a really fun road through beautiful farmland and over a few mountains. The leaves are really starting to change and I would guess that in a week the whole area will be red and orange with fall colors.
I got on the 40 and headed west. Lots of cops on the road today, so I kept my speed in check. It wasn't Sunday and I'm in the South, so I went to Chik Fil A, I love that place.
Tom had suggested that I do the Iron Butt Challenge on my last leg home. It requires that I ride 1000 miles in 24 hours, basically Amarillo to LA in one shot. I've been giving it a lot of though and think I may day it.
I made it to Memphis just as the sun was setting. I went downtown and looked for a hotel room, they were way out of my price range so I headed to West Memphis and found a nice little dump.
I went back into Memphis and ate at Charlie Vergos Rendezvous BBQ. It was pretty tasty, but not as good as the ribs I had last night in Tellico Plains.

Bug Report:
10- today was awesome. I smashed a ton of bugs today. Lots of big fat juicy ones too!
