Miles: 409 (St. Louis to Memphis to Oxford, Miss.)|
Total Miles: 1,450
Total states: 6
Moving violations: 0

Highways: Mark Twain, Mark McGwire, Rosa Parks, Elvis and Danny Thomas.
Road kill: 1 rabbit, 1 squirrel, 1 deer.
Weather: Continued hot and sunny in the upper 80s.
Gas price per gallon: $1.64 (the world's slowest gas pump is located outside Memphis).
Huckleberry Finn tape: In an extraordinary coincidence seldom seen outside 19th century literature, Huck meets up with Tom Sawyer on the lower Mississippi, and after an elaborately amusing and thoroughly unnecessary scheme to rescue Jim, Tom reveals that Jim has already been freed.
Miles to go: 600 (approx.)
