We made it as far as Tunica today - not very far. We are staying at the glorious "Horseshoe Casino and Hotel" which is a crazy clump of hotels on the edge of the Mississippi. The casino itself is in an old meander of the Mississippi - now completely filled in -- on barges in excavated holes filled with water. I assume this is to meet the legal requirements of being a "riverboat" -- yet the river is probably a 1/2 mile away. Strange and sad. The northern points we are going to look at are around here and we should be back on the road shortly.
