Amarillo Travel and Information Center
Todays travel started at 7:11 a.m. after fueling up at a Murphy U.S.A. station right in the Walmart parking lot. We were quickly back on U.S. I-40 for our destination at this Travel and Information Center here in Amarillo Texas.
We have stayed here a few times on our way down or coming back home. It has spaces for RV’S, cars and the tractor trailers for overnight parking.
I-40 is in pretty good shape on the section we travelled today with only two spots of construction taking place. The first one was when we came into Oklahoma City where there were reduced lanes and speed, we sailed thru quite easily with no slow downs or stoppages. The second was about 30 miles west of Oklahoma City, where two lanes went down to one for bridge repairs. Traffic backed up for a couple of miles at a slow pace to the occasional brief stop. After about 20 minutes we were thru and continuing on our way, climbing steadily from the 400 ft level to 3,670-ft level here in Amarillo. Adding to the climb were the steady strong winds, which neither helped fuel mileage, over the 437.5 miles travelled today.
