Farewells this morning were bittersweet as Audrey and Elliot (who had slept over in the RV with us last night) thought they should pack their clothes and come with us.

The Via with the Auto Moto on trailer behind got many stares as we traveled to the first stop in Amarillo, home of The Big Texan Restaurant. It's famous for the free 72-oz steak. It's only free if you can eat it in less than an hour. No takers in our group. Richard and Ginger Cook, friends from 40+ years ago, came to the RV park for a visit before dinner.
