#SS2Gridlife Day Four

The final stops - including a swing through SPEC Clutch - before Gridlife

My day started off in Memphis, Tennessee, staying at a seedy hotel off the beaten path. Surprisingly, I parked the rig in front of my room, which left me with a spectacular view in the morning.

The drive through Tennessee was absolutely beautiful. It's probably the greenest state I've ever seen. No joke, if you roll down the windows, there's a hint of BBQ in the air. I freaking love Tennessee!

I stopped to get some gas and just around the corner was the birthplace of Elvis freaking Presley! Of course I had to stop by and check it out.

After the sightseeing it was time to head straight to SPEC Clutch for our meet.

The purpose of the event was to meet up with anyone who wanted to caravan down to GRIDLIFE with us. Some really nice cars showed up, but most people had already headed down south for the main event.

This was my first time seeing friends in four days after driving all alone. I was so excited to see Jofel and Greg that I completely forgot to take a picture. So here's a pic of Jofel and me a day later.
