This is a pretty nice hotel. I mean it's not The Plaza Hotel in New York City, but a nice place. The hotel is clean. The management staff is very polite. The hotel has a cute but tiny indoor pool and hot tub. The hot tub is a little bit small, but still comforting after being in a car for ten hours. It's really close to Subway, McDonalds, and Whataburger, for some quick food. And they have a continental breakfast, which is scrambled eggs, sausage/bacon, coffee, juice, pastries, bagels, and yogurt, which is a good start in the morning and saves money. We didn't get the room we wanted, I booked a king size bed, instead we got two queens, but in retrospect, at least nobody can hog the blankets. Our room was nice, except for some reason we got put in a handicapped room, so it has a handicapped accessible shower, which is sort of weird because it's not attached to the wall, but since we're only hear for a night, not a big deal, just sort of an inconvenience. This hotel isn't in Amarillo, however, it's very south of the city area, which is great because it's nice and quiet and peaceful, but probably not the best place to stay if you want to be in the heart of everything. But overall, a very nice, comfortable, and affordable hotel. Probably a 3.5/5 stars.

Day One of the honeymoon, and we made it ten hours, in a car, without killing each ourselves or each other,I'd say that's a pretty good way to start the vacation.
It was hard saying goodbye to the kitties, knowing that we wouldn't see them for a month, and they were upset because they knew that something was up. I miss them already.
... some more, he got back in, and ten minutes later we moved a foot. Awesome!
So I got to the Little Rock exit eventually, but the sign seemed to indicate that the actual city was somewhat farther off along another highway, and I wasn't going to go off on a new route. This was already taking forever. So I just kept going, figuring I would drive until I got tired and find a hotel somewhere.
I ended up, finally, crossing the border into ...
... Amarillo early evening, finishing off our drive on Route 66 as it diverts north as we head South. All starving we went straight to the Big Texan Steak House; which had been advertised on huge billboards for the last 200 miles. The Steak House was huge feeling somewhat like a Disney park. The restaurant was set out like a theatre with a stage at the front reserved for those participating in the free 72oz steak challenge. If you manage to finish you get the meal for free. The ...
... we then
had to help pack up the balloon and stick it in the truck. Then we
drove to the site of where another balloon had come down, but they
had a worse landing then we did and they crashed into a fence,
damaging the balloon, but the guys were still trying to untangle that
balloon and there was nothing we could do, so we went back to the
hotel, had some champagne, for a successful flight, then we went to
the hotel restaurant, for a ...
... if he didn't answer his phone then he was in the meeting. I packed the car and went and got some cash and arrived at the address he had texted me. It was all within 30 minutes, yet he didn't answer. He said the meeting was at 1100 yet this was just after 1000. So, I assumed he was at his meeting so I went back and headed for the other thing I had planned for the day. A purchase at the music store. I had almost got back to the music store that was right near Dexter's apartment when ...
