Thank you to everyone who booked this unbelievable Memphis trip with me.  My apologies to everyone who was booked on the second bus which was canceled due to Graceland not being able to accommodate two full buses.  If someone on the first bus cancels, folks booked on the second bus will be contacted first.  Also, everyone on the second bus will be contacted if we decide to do another trip to Memphis next year.

A special thanks to Maegan, Cat and everyone at Travel Machine (337) 981-7870 for putting together this exciting Memphis excursion.  When I asked them to do it up good, they far exceeded my wildest expectations.  I don't even know how we will get through Day 2, but I'm sure they will find a way.  That's why they are the BEST!

I look forward to this special trip and seeing all of you Wednesday morning.
