And We're Off!

Wayne and Randy took the motor home and car for a test run yesterday evening and filled them up:
Here we are ready to hit the road at 8:00 am this morning!

How on earth I got everything loaded into this thing without blowing out the tires - I'll never know!

About 50 miles from Amarillo these great looking clouds showed up but only dropped a few little sprinkles on us.  It was a pretty smooth journey to Amarillo.  But for some reason "Margret" (our GPS) told us our camp ground was on the right instead of the left so we had to make a LARGE U-turn!  But all is well, we made it safely.

The Overnite RV Park in Amarillo is home for tonight.  Quiet, lots of trees and landscape to help cover the sound of the highways.  Even Teddy likes it!
Now for some chow!  Oh, Darling!  Call the limo please!
The Limo is here!

Here we go!  Off to the Big Texan for a delicious steak!  And maybe a drink or two.
 Oh yeah!  A much needed drink!  As we watch a guy eat a 72 oz. steak, a baked potato, salad, roll and a glass of iced tea.
He wasn't that big of a guy, but he ate every bit of his food in 37 minutes, therefore it was free!  THEN he had desert!  A huge bowl of ice cream!  Unbelievable!
Dang!  That's a lot of meat!  We shared a steak dinner and still brought half of it back to the camper!  Mighty good!

Pretty cool place!  What a rocking chair!  Does this remind you of our friend EdithAnn?  That's the truththththththththth!
Now it's night-night time! 
We are headed for brand new territory tomorrow!  I am so looking forward to a landscape change and of course a change in temperaturs!!!!!!!
