Memphis was a roller coaster of an emotional day for us: from silly fun at the Peabody Duck Parade, to heavy sadness at the Civil Rights Museum, then to bewilderment at a Bass Pro Shops pyramid, and finally to sheer excitement on Beale Street.
This is Day 23 of our 10,000 mile road trip across the US.
0:19 – Peabody Hotel Duck Parade
1:20 – National Civil Rights Museum (at the Lorraine Hotel)
1:28 – Civil Rights Museum (part 1 – history: 1700’s to 1968)
4:14 – Lunch at Central BBQ (so good!)
5:35 – Civil Rights Museum (part 2 – conspiracies and explanations)
6:28 – Our review of the Civil Rights Museum (Spoiler: you should go to it)
8:56 – Bass Pro Shops Pyramid (and Ducks Unlimited)
10:32 – Beale Street (blues music!)
What’s going on here?
We quit our jobs, left New York City, bought a car, and decided to spend the summer driving around the US. The plan is to hit at least 35 states and cover more than 10,000 miles.

Canon G7X Mark II: http://amzn.to/2nDh9UH (it’s amazing and basically sees in the dark)
Canon G7X: http://amzn.to/2mMmPrd (the original is almost as good, but less expensive)
Joby Gorillapod: http://amzn.to/2n6m92y (fantastic versatile bendy tripod – this is the slightly smaller “action” version that’s easier to travel with and comes with a mount for a camera and a gopro)
Macbook Air: http://amzn.to/2n6rPtc (we edit everything on Final Cut Pro on a Macbook Air, which is light and easy to travel with)
External Hard Drive: http://amzn.to/2nD6o4F (the videos are a little too big for the macbook air to handle, so I edit everything off an external hard drive)
