We left Van Horn on a windy morning and travelled without major incident to Abilene, Texas. Although it's quite famous because of the song written about it, there isn't much to see in Abilene except for about 2 dozen Dairy Queens. Never a duo to shirk the local customs, Nui and RRR promptly unhooked the car and headed for the nearest DQ. We learned a long time ago to always order everything "small". But, as the signs say, everything is big in Texas. By the time we finished dinner, all there was left to do was tour the empty city streets. We saw some beautiful old buildings, some really cute, twinkling buffalo street lights, a giant buffalo statue and lots of First Baptist churches. We wondered where they keep the Second Baptist churches but we never did find any.
