      The sun and warmth has returned and after a rather disturbed night we left Amarillo late morning but only had a mere 100 miles to cover today. Off we went and before long we arrived at The Midpoint Cafe, the importance of this is that this is what it is. Halfway between Chicago and LA, what an achievement. Ugli Pie was the choice of the day and we …

      Hi all,
      This blogging is taking more time than we thought and sometimes the wifi service is sketchy but here are our day 3 adventures - a pretty relaxed day.
      We had to start out at WalMart so we could get our spray paint for the Cadillac Ranch. We stopped at the Big Texan to see what that steak looked like - YIKES! And you have to eat the …

To the west of Vega was one long stretch of 'newer' Route 66 running parallel to I-40 on our left. On the right we saw the remaining mound where the dismantled railway has been, with some remaining railway sleepers strewn around. On the other side of that was the hint of an older Route 66 where only the pre-fabricated concrete box of a small wash bridge (a wash is ...

      ... of enchantment" fits the place too well. Where I am right now it is remotely quiet, even though I am in town and next to the interstate, and the vastness does not stop.

      We hit I-40 in Amarillo at 3:30 this afternoon and continued on towards Tucumcari, NM. Along this leg of our journey we saw hundreds and hundreds of windmills on the horizon. We must have driven for 6-10 miles and could still see them. Old Route 66 paralleled I-40 for many miles. About 15 miles from the New Mexico border we suddenly came to the end of the plateau that we had been driving on for so long and the view ...
