Hi Michael, I live in Nashville. One year I flew to LA and drove to Oklahoma City, the next year I flew to Chicago and drove to Oklahoma City. Each time I drove the rental car back through Memphis. If you're going to drive your own car?... you should drive to LA and begin in Santa Monica. The drive from Chicago to GA would be more at doable at the ned of your trip. Thanks for joining.
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!
