ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.......you know, once you think you have seen it all, you've seen NOTHING yet! I thought that I-81 through Pennsylvania was bad....
If you are driving from Amarillo to Dallas-Fort Worth, and you decide to take US 287, be prepared. LLLLOOOONNNNGGGGGG, flat, and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to see. Sure, there are small towns like Vernon and Childress, but it is SSOOOOOO boring. I found myself fighting sleep it was so bad. For real. There are 2 nice "Safety Rest Areas" along the road, and they have a mimi-museum in each. One is designed like a train station, and there are kiosks where you can get free maps.
US 287. I would recommend it just once, but no more than that. If you find yourself getting drowsy, pull over and sleep. The road is long and dark, so be prepared.
Ok (YAWN) back to....ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ...........
