Rolling on via Interstate–40 East, now homebound!
We left our Hyatt Place Oklahoma City/Bricktown and via a short stretch on Interstate 25 South, shortly on US Highway 285 and after 60 km or 37 miles already on Interstate 40 East towards Hyatt Place Memphis/Germantown in Tennessee.
After 323.5 km or 188 mi we needed to gas up and were ready for our own pit stop.
We did so at this Phillips 66 gas station and Kountry Xpress on 1107 Georgia Ridge Dr. in Mulberry, Arkansas.
We both were quite surprised to find some REAL GOOD Indian food for lunch around 12:58!
An hour later, I did spot this Walmart Supercenter in Clarksville, Arkansas where Pieter got out for some fresh mandarins and healthy yogurt.
After our good lunch; a light supper would do!
On Interstate 40 East in Conway, Arkansas it was rather hot... 104°F or 40°C
And that even close to the mighty Mississippi River...
And we're nearing Little Rock, Arkansas where former President Clinton hailed from.

At 15:30 we split off here towards Memphis, Tennessee
At 17:22 in West Memphis, Arkansas crossing the mighty Mississippi River into Memphis, Tennessee
Yes, the Mississippi River is the state border.
Tennessee/Arkansas border via I–55 Mississippi River bridge ←short video showing the reversed crossing into Arkansas but gives an impression of the mighty Mississippi River!
Our end for the day is in Memphis/Germantown.
That way we are close to the Interstate for next day's departure and already east of the city.
Gassing up for next day, very close to our Hyatt Place
Hyatt Place 9161 Winchester Rd, Memphis, Tennessee
Again a King Size Bed awaits us...
BUT I first liked to go for a walk in fresh air and stretch my legs!
So enjoyed my walk!
Perfect weather for walking around...
At 18:29 still 36°C or 96.8°F
