I Welcome you to the Mother Road Site and feel honored to be your friend. I live 30 miles south of Rt. 66 on Hwy 89 in north central Az. and travel 66 (hwy 40) often from Ca to Albuquerque NM to visit my clients. I am also an avid amature photographer and have a few shots from along my travels. One day soon I will post some on the site. My first travels on Rt 66 was with my good friend Joe Loesch in the mid 60's when we were riding our motorcycles together and living with in a couple of miles of Rt 66 in souther CA.
I'm not surprised but my brother's name was James Gray (now deceased) and I'm looking for a writer for a book about my grandparents (and my) association with Route 66. I've been trying to get a book written due to all the history in my family with Route 66 and the pioneering of the west by my great-grandfather. Check out my photos and the story on my page. Nice to know you.
The Road Crew - America's Route 66 Band was the opening act for the International Route 66 Festival, August 2-3. Performed on Main Street in Galena, Friday and on Main Street in Joplin Saturday night. Performed for over 15,000 people in Joplin! Their mini-concert at Afton Station that Sunday afternoon was a big hit with visitors. We had a great time on Route 66! Hoping to see everyone in Kingman next year!
