The Big Texan 2014

You can’t miss it. Approaching Amarillo on I-40 from the east the bill boards start about 150 away. The theme? “Free 72 ounce Sirloin Steak at The Big Texan Steak Ranch”. Who does it? Several people a week, Joey Chestnut ate his in 3 min and 52 seconds. Other notables were; a 69 year old Grandmother, a Professional Wrestler ate 2 dinners, the youngest was an 11 year old boy. Mind you that this is a well-balanced meal consisting of: 4 ½ Pounds of Steak, French Fries, Salad and of course Bread.

Did we eat there? Of Course! I had a very nice smallish Rib Eye, a loaded spud and a glass of one of their craft beers, ok 2 glasses. Nobody was taking the 72 oz. challenge while we were there. More info at:


Tomorrow we will run about 250 miles to Santa Fe area of New Mexico. We plane to stop for a few days in the area of Los Almos where there is a National Park we can dry camp at for $6/nite.

POST Script: I am posting this from Los Alamo Library, about 10 miles from our campsite. More news to follow.
