Last evening before bed Howard tells me, “I don’t think I am going to disconnect the water hose.” Well guess who gets up to go outside to disconnect the hose in the cold, wee hours of the night?
I feel him get up out of bed, I hear him moving around putting on layers of clothes, and as he heads out the door I see his light, which is strapped to his forehead, shining like a beacon in the darkness.
In my hazy, sleepy mind I wonder, “where is he going?” I don’t remember asking. LOL! He tells me this morning, ” it was so foggy when I went out to disconnect the hose, I couldn’t see my hand in front of my face.”
Note to Howard, if you even think there might be a need to disconnect the water hose do so before going to bed.
Sportsman RV Park in Lamar, CO….
We woke to fog, so thick we felt we were sitting in the clouds. We delayed getting on the road making sure the fog had lifted enough to drive. After a couple hot cups of coffee and a walk with the girls, we were ready to continue our journey south.
We traveled Highway 287 all the way from Lamar, CO to Amarillo, TX. Long drive eh [grins]. Again we drove through prairie lands, except today we enjoyed rolling hills and blue skies with white clouds.
Well maintained roads on 287 took us to the Colorado/Oklahoma state line. The roads deteriorated from there. Oklahoma has some of the worst highways, they are so bad.
We rattled and shook all the way to the Oklahoma/Texas state line. Once in Texas the roads were great again. Thank goodness.
We are staying at Amarillo Ranch RV Park off of Interstate 40 in Amarillo, Texas. It is a nice RV park, clean and well maintained with large sites and lots of green grass to walk the doggies.
We decided when we got to Amarillo, we were going to treat ourselves to a nice dinner at The Big Texan Steak Ranch and handcrafted Brewery.
This place is legionary, known around the world for its free 72oz steak given to the person who can eat the steak with all the fixings in under 60 minutes. The World Record is 4 minutes 58 minutes. You can watch her eat this dinner by clicking on the link below.
We enjoyed our meal along with the quirky atmosphere in the dining room. Howard had a filet steak and I had grilled Salmon. We each had a Pecan Porter brew and split a huge piece of Chocolate Cake.
Gosh, we need to exercise this off!
For so many years we have driven straight through Amarillo from Colorado on our way to visit family in Louisiana. Never stopping to visit, we decided to stay here for two nights to take in a few sights around the area. More on that tomorrow.
