Amarillo, TX 79118
While we are working at Amarillo Ranch RV Park we will be receiving a free meal every month at the Big Texan Steak Ranch so this was our first meal and our first time at the steak house. They offer a free limo ride there and we took advantage...
The atmosphere is so cool, especially if someone's trying the 72 ounce challenge, which at this visit there were two who failed...
We both started with Margarita's which were so yummy and Fried Mushrooms that had a wonderfully tasting coating.
I had the Chicken Fried Steak with salad and mashed potatoes...the steak had a delightful taste to it and was so tender, the gravy was a little blah but was a good meal...
Jerry had the Prime Rib with a loaded baked potato and cowboy beans...the prime rib was succulent, tender and flavorful, the beans were cooked to perfection with chunks of meat and tender beans that just sort of melted in your mouth...
As you can see, we cleaned our plates...
Before we got our limo ride back we stopped at the gift shop and found some interesting items...
How you like my cowboy? Before we began traveling full time, he very often wore cowboy hats, tight jeans and cowboy boots, looks like he may be looking at doing it again...hmmmm, I could live with that!

Bar J Hitchin’ Post RV

Sweetwater, TX 79556
We paid $36.00 for a water, electric, sewer site on gravel that was fairly level.
The lady in the office was accommodating and friendly and the office had a western look to it but this was part of our nightmare adventure so we did not venture out to check it out and didn’t even take a photo.
It seemed like a decent place to stop for the night and if we are ever in the area again, we would stay here.

13550 Donop Road
Elmendorf, TX 78112
We paid $26.00 using our Passport America 50% discount membership for a water, electric, sewer, fairy level site on a concrete slab. They offer free cable and WiFi but ours worked just fine.
Good service from the front desk and our escort was very helpful.
We did laundry but they were about to upgrade the laundry area in just a few days so they will have brand new machines.
We hadn’t planned to stay here twice in such a short time but after the nightmare we encountered on Port Aransas we chose to return to a place we felt comfortable at so we chose this park. We didn’t do too much exploring due to our moods but it looks like a nice place to hang out for a night or longer.
If we are ever in the area again we would stay here and we would recommend it to others.
