Driving Part 4
Most of the drive through here was very windy- about 40 mph and there's also cheaper gas in Gallup, NM at Grandma Max's on I-40.
12:10 pm- lunch at Cracker Barrel (I was so excited about this! There isn't a CB anywhere near Las Vegas) on Coors Blvd in Albuquerque, NM
5:23 pm- Finally in Texas!! About 75 miles from Amarillo and the Big Texan. By the time we made it there (approximately 9 pm I think, like I said, time zones made everything a blur) we weren't very hungry but by the time we actually got the food, we were ravenous. The restaurant looks like a saloon and we were even serenaded by a trio of cowboys. There was a guy who was trying to eat that 72 oz steak in under an hour (there is a clock on the table) but didn't quite make it. He looked as if he'd probably sleep for about 10 hours after that meal.
