Alamosa to Amarillo

Hi Everyone,

Well we left Alamosa & headed for Albuquerque New Mexico, The scenery changed pretty quick from this:

To this:
We don't have much to say about Albuquerque as when we got there we realised we didn't pick our motel too well as we were in a bad part of town! Needless to say we didn't wonder around too much.
We headed off early the next morning - turning left of course & heading for Texas.

It was a 5 1/2 hour drive to Amarillo.  The weather was still in the 100's & everything was pretty dry.
Not much to look at

Feed lot

Wind farm - not working!

We arrived in Amarillo about 3.30 & checked into our Motel - Much better place, even had a Bar in the Motel :)
We met a lovely lady there named Katy, she was travelling alone so we asked her to join us for dinner, We had a free Limo ride to The Big Texan:
Dave & Limo behind boot

The band was sing Margarita ville - very fitting!

Cheers With Margarita's!!!

A Great Night!

We had the best time & the food was great too!
The next day we headed off to Fort Worth, another 5 1/2 hours of Driving. We are spending 4 days there so that will be the next post.
Cheers Dave & Shell


  1. Hey Dave and Shell,

    Thank you again for including me in your adventure in Amarrillo and especially for refering to me as a lovely Lady. You are two very special people. I made it to Flagstaff the next day and now am in Indiana. Don't forget about Austin Tx or Savannah Georgia for your next trip to the states. Loved the tatoo and glad you made it home safely.. Take care Katy

  2. Hi Katy,
    So good to hear from you.
    We had a blast that night - didnt we!
    Yes back home now & Dave is back at work - got a few Aussie adventures planned. We are going to meet Granddaughter Ruby in 3 weeks - really looking forward to that. You take care & enjoy your traavels :)
    Dave & Shell
