Road Trip...3rd Try!

We started our trip in Dallas on Friday by having a delicious breakfast of bacon, creme brule French toast, and fruit.

After loading the car, we were ready to begin our Road Trip.

We stopped at a rest area where we found interesting signs as well as visitors.

We had lunch at the Big Texan restaurant in Amarillo...what good food. This is the place where if you eat a 72 oz. steak, baked potato, salad, 3 shrimp and a roll within an hour, it is free. Otherwise it is $72. About 20% of the people that have tried it over the years, have successfully eaten it within an hour. The record time is under 8 minutes. The oldest successful eater was a 69 year old woman and the youngest was 11. Interestingly, about a half a dozen people have successfully completed it this month.

Another stop was at Cadillac Ranch where an eccentric gentleman has buried 10 1950-1970 models half way in the ground. People have spray-painted them over the years.

We also stopped in Adrian which is the midway point on historic Route 66. The city's motto is " when you are here, you are half way there".

We stopped for the evening in Santa Rosa, New Mexico. The view from our room...God paints such a beautiful picture.

Since we only had lunch, we went to DQ for Blizzards...what a way to end a day!
