Uncle Pete's for Thanksgiving!

Destination: Memphis, then Hot Springs, Arkansas
This week brought us to one of our favorite stops yet, an unassuming place called Tom Sawyer's RV park in West Memphis, AR. It's located right on the Mississippi & the view was incredible! I got to watch the sun rise over the river every morning right from our RV and James got to fish the ponds within walking distance. It also had FREE laundry, fast wifi & warm, clean bathrooms.

We made sure to stop by the massive Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World in Memphis. It's in a gigantic pyramid shaped building and includes tons of ponds filled with real ducks and fish. Kinda felt like being at Disney World. We also went downtown Memphis for a bite to eat and a drink (for me) at a local bar and eatery called Flying Saucer Draught Emporium just around the corner from the neon lights of Beale Street.

James' carp: tastes like chicken! (really)
Pete and Hana teamed up to make a delicious sweet potato pie for Thanksgiving.
On Thanksgiving we made our way to Uncle Pete's in Hot Springs, Arkansas! It was great seeing Pete and meeting his friend, Elizabeth. The dogs enjoy having room to run around and play again after a month in the RV. I spent my weekend replacing Pete's worn out kitchen faucet and 50 year old toilet. (I was met with fierce opposition by Pete, of course.) Next weekend I'll be replacing the bathroom vent/light!

Wow, that is a big fish! Glad it tasted good. But, do you remember what chicken tastes like?
Pete might be wondering what home improvement whirlwind hit him!

Haha, I guess it tastes the way chicken smells. But James confirmed it tasted like a McNugget.

If I ever catch one of those again I am throwing it back into the water. The same goes if I catch another drum fish. Now these catfish, walleye, and trout I have been getting are just too good to throw back into the water.
