Family Road Trip: Memphis, Tennessee

Travel

The drive from Amarillo to Memphis is over 10 hours and a drive that wasn’t terribly fascinating. On top of that it was cloudy and rained from time to time. We would have loved to stop in some of the cities on the way, but that kind of drive day meant we even rushed bathroom breaks.…
