The countdown has begun for the trip. Heading out Friday afternoon and will be in OK by Saturday night. Oh yes, driving through with minimal rest stops. Any suggestions on where I should eat on the way? I've eaten at a few recommended stops on 66/40, but am always looking out for new recommendations.

We spent the night in Amarillo, TX. and ate a place on Paramount Blvd, and I think it was called something "Country"...it was on the right hand of the street on Paramount Blvd.... it has a canning jar on the building?????It's owned by Wynona Judd's guitar player and it's real down home type food...They serve you a basket of fresh bread/cinnamon rolls that are very good...I'm sure if you ask someone on that street, they can direct you to the place....If you like homestyle/country cooking, you might like this place...

All,

As mk said, I'm taking 40/66. It's the best CA escape route. I love down-home country cooking. Load me up with gravy, butter, and a side of gravy! I love chicken-fried steaks, I could eat those all day long. I have concerns though about driving right into some heavy weather. I will be sure to take some pics. I was also thinking about taking a detour to the Grand Canyon, but haven't made up my mind yet on that.

I must have had a brain fade... That is the route we took as well...

If you are lucky you WILL see some weather on the way, we drove through several storms on the way back here and they were spectacular!!

I don't have many decent pics of our trip, (too busy oooohing and ahhhhing LOL)

Look forward to seeing yours!
