I've been 15 years when the tour was available, but I've been through the house about 19 times because the last two I had VIP passes and went through twice those days.
I'm from the area originally and I try and go every June . I miss one now and then but I try and make it once a year to Memphis and hit Graceland and see some folks I know. I used to stay a week, the last two times I tried to get in and out of Memphis the same day because I'm liking the city less and less. I went the first year it was open, was that 82? Then in 1988, 1991,92 , 94, 96,98,99, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 .
In addition I was up to the house in January of 1977, and 1979 too, before they allowed tours.
