    Route 66: Amarillo

    September 21 in the United States

    Heute hatten wir ein bisschen mehr Strecke vor uns und sind daher relativ früh aufgebrochen. Der Himmel sieht heute morgen doch schon wieder viel einladender aus als die Tage zuvor.

    Nach ca. 400 km sieht es allerdings wieder nicht so schön aus und es fängt an zu regnen. Wir fahren ran, ziehen unsere Regenklamotten an und weiter geht es.

    Kurz vor Amarillo machen wir noch einmal Halt, um uns die Cadillac Ranch anzugucken. Die Ranch besteht eigentlich nur aus 10 ausgeschlachteten Cadillacs, welche zum einem Drittel in die Erde gesteckt wurden und mittlerweile mehr aus Farbe als aus Metall bestehen, da sie jederzeit mit Graffiti besprüht werden dürfen. Die Cadillacs sollen wohl die Modelle der unterschiedlichen Jahrgänge darstellen, welchen an den verschiedenen Formen der Kotflügel auszumachen sind, allerdings ist hier aufgrund der vielen Farbe kaum noch ein Unterschied zu erkennen.

    Weiter geht es in unser Motel und mal wieder zu einem Mexikaner um uns für den nächsten Tag zu stärken.

    Nighty Night in Amarillo

    June 8, 2015 in the United States

    We did not go back south to Lubbock. And sitting in the hotel discussing what led to our sleeping in Amarillo, we decided that what happens with the sisters stays with the sisters. Unfortunately, Bill knows all.

    Amarillo by Morning

    May 1 in the United States

    We wanted to see what Amarillo was like, so we drove through the Historic Route 66 District complete with shops, restaurants, and bars. Next we headed out to see Cadillac Ranch, where multiple spray painted Cadillacs are half buried into the ground. The RV Park next door had an attraction all of its own: the 2nd amendment cowboy (he was 22 feet tall and used to advertise a Texas BBQ steakhouse).

    Along the way we were entertained by the TONS of American & Texan flags, and the quirky gas stations. I was mind-boggled by the drive-through window at the liquor store! Eric was in love with the huge brick home with tons of land.

    Cadillac ranch, TX

    May 28, 2016 in the United States

    Thought overlay of thousands of travelers in Graffiti on Cadillacs, beginning with those of the art group Ant Farm. Pretty sure the thoughts of its creators in 1974 are deep buried in the layers of colored spray.

    Cadillac ranch consists of what were either older running used or junk Cadillac automobiles, representing a number of evolutions of the car line (most notably the birth and death of the defining feature of mid twentieth century Cadillacs: the tailfins) from 1949 to 1963, half-buried nose-first in the ground, at an angle corresponding to that of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.Read more

    Supper in Memphis, TX

    June 8, 2015 in the United States

    At first we thought we'd eat supper in Lubbock. But the longer we drove, the farther away Lubbock seemed to be. After whizzing by eateries in towns so small that we were through them before we knew we were in them, we got smart and used our phones to search for restaurants in the town coming up, i.e. Memphis. Rock Inn Cafe is where we landed, at 7:45 p.m. There was no one in the cafe except employees, who assured is they were open till 9. While browsing the menu, we discovered there were bible verses printed on the pages. The staff was friendly, other people came in while we were eating and the food was good. We asked our waiter how far to Lubbock and he replied, "About 2 hrs. And watch out for the deer and feral hogs."

    Now we were pretty discouraged as we thought we'd be in Amarillo by 9. There must have been too many stops along the way. We decided to spend the night in Lubbock.

    So I called Bill and asked him to find us a good deal on a hotel in Lubbock. He did. I typed the address into my phone, and Lubbock was even father away AND was SOUTH of us. What? ! Then we passed a sign saying Amarillo was 60 miles away! I thought we had to go through Lubbock to get to Amarillo. Wrong.

    So I called Bill again and explained the situation to him. Then he explained to me that the reservations could not be cancelled.
