Historic Route 66
« on: May 20, 2010, 07:22:00 am »
My wife and I are traveling Historic Route 66 from its start in downtown Chicago to the Santa Monica Pier in our Phoenix Cruiser.  We are keeping a travel journal.  If you would like to travel along with us, you’ll find the link below.
 
Since we don’t know exactly how long it will take or where we’ll be each day, this is our philosophy right now:
 
      “Tourists don't know where they've been, travelers don't know where they're going.”  - Paul Theroux

Gary and Shelby, travelers

I remember very few of the things that I’ve spent money to buy, but I remember all of the places that I’ve spent money to see.

How is your travel going? Went to the link and got confused.

Route 66 is one of our favorite trips. For example our last trip from St. Louis to Springfield Illinois took four hours because we had to stop at the Rabbitt Ranch, had lunch at the 50's diner in Staunton and traveled the only brick section of route 66 left. Don't miss any of the unique things along the way. PS: 66 went through Kansas also. Irv & Dot.

We spent a night in Kingman AZ, returning home to IL from Las Vegas in a Corvette we bought there.  Very nice town that preserved Route 66.

Small world story.  Last year I ran into Paul McCartney -- the Paul McCartney -- at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe.  He and his girlfriend made the same camping trip you are doing on Rt. 66.  Just saying ...
