... on to our final destination of the day, Shamrock, TX.
Shamrock is home to one of the most famous landmarks on Route 66, the U Drop Inn, a beautifully restored art deco gas station. It has also become famous recently for its starring role in the 2006 animated Disney film Cars. The cartoon village of Radiator Springs was based on multiple real US Route 66 landmarks and the U-Drop Inn's distinctive architecture appears ...
We leave New Mexico and jump back on to the I40. Our lunch time stop was Adrian. Adrian is the mid point for Route 66. From there it is 1,139 miles to either Santa Monica or Chicago. The midpoint is completely signposted and the road even has the paint to show that it is the midpoint of Route 66. There is a cute cafe there and we grab our lunch, pretty good chicken and turkey burgers. The waitress displays warm southern hospitality and we sign the guestbook as we leave.
We heard about this quirky little museum that showcased classic RVs that had been rehabbed. We thought it would be one of those road side attraction places but it ended up being a great museum. It was a private collection of rvs dating back many generations. The pride of the collection was the 1948 Flexible bus which was the actual bus used by the Gornike family in the Robin Williams movie RV. This bus is a 1948 Flxible Bus that was modified for the movie.
And we're off...We set out on our Southwest America journey on Wednesday July 9th at 1pm. The kids settled in for the long ride by swiftly firing up their electronic devices. Aria had a movie going on her DVD player before we got on I-20. They were so entertained that not once did I hear "Are we there, yet?"
Along the way we got to see a 72 oz steak at the Big Texan Steak house and painted Cadillacs stuck into ground near Amarillo. Only in Texas!

... exhausted with the whole process and I just wanted it out of the way so I could try to get back to my life. Maybe I'll return someday and checkout the steakhouse my cab driver was telling me about (apparently that is THE thing to do in Amarillo, but I was too worried about getting enough sleep to venture out), but for now I just have these pics from my pseudo-adventure ...
