    Recently made the trip on 287 in MH. Good road, you can see for miles. Don't miss Palo Duro Canyon.

    I did that a few years ago. It was a great trip then, too. You go through Wichita Falls. Lots of Texas history up that way, too. Like Jim says, go to the Palo Duro Canyon. It's a one day thing.

    We stayed in a park right near to the Big Texan steakhouse in Amarillo. I think they had a shuttle to take you there and back (short trip.)

    Here's a couple of parks. We stayed in two of them, but one is out of business.

    Hollis, when will you be in Flagstaff? We will be there sometimes if Tex will ever let us out of Texas. Think his GPS is sending us in circles. Texas is like Alaska. You need three months just to see the highlights. :laugh:

    Hey you guy's, don't forget the 72 oz steak is free at the Texan steak house....if'en you eat it and all the other stuff in 60 minutes.
    They do have great steaks and easy parking for big rigs.
    And Nash, it really po'ed us Texans when Alaska was admitted to the lower 48. We are now the 2nd largest state and the second largest oil cartel in america. But, by constitution, we can still suceed.

    Re: DALLAS TO AMARILLO

    Jim, I'm lobbying to have texas divided into 4 states while I'm here. Not fair to do all this traveling and just get to color in one state. :laugh: :laugh: . If you need any help in suceeding, I still got my confederate money. :laugh: :laugh:

    Dear Mr Nash, (or is it ms)
    When you write the word Texas, never ever use small caps. I've got connections and if'n your not out of Texas soon, we'll have to come'a looken fer you. Can't divide up a good thang.

    hey Nash...you still in Texas? Make sure you fuel up before leaving the state...we need the tax dollars. Did you get a free steak at the Big Texan steak house?
    Did I do good Tex? Trying to help the state coffers.

    Re: DALLAS TO AMARILLO

    Jim & Tex, I am having to lay over in TTTTTexas now to wait until the ck goes in the bank 1st of the month :eek: . Done spent all my Feb. monthly Uncle Sam allowence in Texas :approve: .
    Hollis I'll probably still be this way in May. No plans for returning anytime soon although I will have to get back to ck on Mother but, my sister is caring for her at present time. Do miss the famly, grandkids and twin Great Grand daughters.
    Jim, I'm from just south of Mountain Brook way out in the bonnies. Bibb County. I understand all foxworthy talk and use it myself.
    Tex, is it ok to just pull over and run on the side when faster traffic comes up behind. Your roads would be a 4 lane in Bibb County Al. I'm talking about your 2 lane with wide shoulders.

    Re: DALLAS TO AMARILLO

    Hey Tex, They gotta be spending a lot of money as long as they've been in TX. Do you think Gov Rick will lower the sales tax? Of course, if their drive on the shoulder that would mean more money on maintenance. Break even at best! Dang it Tex, we gotta find a way to make these border jumpers pay. Sorry Nash!

    Jim, I have done gone and spent all my money here at Marfa looking for thos mystery lights. Expecting someone at any minute to come up and try to sell me some ocean front property while I am looking for those lights :laugh: :laugh: Not the only fool though, the lot has been full every night. Say they see them but all I see is car headlights way over there on 67 :eek:

    Jim
    We were at Bix Tex Steakhouse about 10-11 yrs ago & Honey ate the steak & all the trimming & I was the one that felt sick.
    There were 2 truck drivers(husband & wife team) Man 6ft abou 240 lbs, Lady 5ft5 about 140lbs. They both ordered the steaks.
    SHE finished hers & he did not. By the way, How much is it going for now? I think it was about $35-40 when we were there.
    Darlin :cool:
