Staying in the HUGE Pro Bass Shop Pyramid in Memphis! [TENN Day 1]
For my first trip that I'm hosting alone (eep!) I get to stay in the Big Cypress Lodge located in the HUGE Pro Bass Shop pyramid!! I'm actually loving hosting alone already (though, I have to be honest, the Rovia members don't arrive until tomorrow...but still! ;) ) and am kind of glad that I didn't know until today that I'm on my own (otherwise I would have gotten more and more nervous as the trip got closer).
I flew from PHX to Atlanta to Memphis and arrived at 2:00. It was a long day already but when I drove up to the lodge, I was WIDE awake. This building is incredible! Pictures just can't convey how huge this thing is! The elevator inside is the largest free standing elevator in the USA - 300 feet tall!
My room is absolutely beautiful - couldn't help but think my Aunt Coco and Uncle Rick would loooove this place! It's literally an outdoorsmen's Disneyland. :) I'll show more photos of my room later - I'm just in awe of the detail!
My indoor balcony opens up on the entire Pro Bass Shop. Who woulda thought you could have an INDOOR balcony?
I arrived and got in contact with the hotel staff and our excursion people to make sure we're all set for the members to arrive tomorrow. Found out there had been a fire in one of the restaurants earlier today so they were scrambling to find other options for us. It's been a bit of an exciting first day and I haven't had any luck finding a food option yet, but I'm learning a lot for my first solo trip. ;)
Absolutely exhausted. Gonna get some food and sleep. :)
