#SS2Gridlife Day Two

Super Street and the Project Subaru Legacy GT “Death Wagon” travel from New Mexico to Texas on our way to Road Atlanta for Gridlife South 2016

Day 2 saw a shorter distance than Day 1 due to ridiculously slow Internet in my hotel. I was forced to poach Wi-Fi at Starbucks to get some work done before I hit the road. One hour quickly turned into three and I was way behind schedule.

The trip out of New Mexico to Texas seemed like it took forever. The route I took didn’t have much going on, but I did get a chance to see some weather (which we don’t get much of in Southern Cali – Ed.)

Once I reached Texas I decided to stop for a quick lunch at everyone’s favorite gas station restaurant, Subway. Don’t let the sunrays fool you; this roast beef was 6 inches of disappointment (that what she said – ZING! – Ed.)

To top things off, as soon as I finished my 6-inch sandwich of sadness I saw a sign for a FREE 72-ounce steak in Amarillo. Even though I was a tad full from before, I wasn’t going to pass up a chance to eat the biggest steak in my life, so I drove straight to the steakhouse.

I pulled up to the “Big Texan” steakhouse 30 minutes before they closed (time zone change) so I didn’t have time to take down the 72-ounce challenge, but I did have just enough time to try my luck at taking down a 36-ounce steak.

And man, oh, man, was it huge (that’s what she .... oh, wait … - Ed.)

Just looking at that damn thing is giving me a heart attack. After I wolfed down the biggest steak in my life, I got a serious case of the “itis,” or food coma in other words. Instead of trying to make it to Oklahoma tonight, I decided to call it quits and get some rest in Amarillo.

Next time I’m in this town, I’m 100 percent taking the steak challenge, and I’m gonna get my name on that wall.

Tomorrow’s destination is Oklahoma! Let’s see what the Sooner state has in store for me.
