Chick Trip 2002

July 5th

Albuquerque, New Mexico to Shawnee, Oklahoma

We started the day off nicely, with a Pecan Waffle at the Waffle House next to the hotel. Yummy! 

We packed up and headed toward Amarillo, Texas.  We had met some nice people who told us that if we were heading that way, to stop at the Big Texan Steak House for a meal. Very kitschy and fun!  The BBQ was OK, nothing to scream about.

We then drove like the Dickens all the way to Shawnee, Oklahoma!  OK City was just a little too crowded for us, though it looked like a nice town.  So, on to Shawnee for us.  We got a room at the Motel 6.  It was new, clean, and comfy!  We were still full from lunch, but decided to go for a sweet!  We drove around town and stopped at Braum's Ice Cream Parlor.  Lela swore that nothing could tear her allegiance away from Dairy Queen, but I think that Braum's did.  It was totally delicious!

We slept well this night!
