Partridge Creek Route 66

"Great Photo!  Well-framed, and it shows what you have to go through sometimes to get to the out-of-the-way attractions. There's a video online that shows just how rough that old alignment…"

"More than any other road, I think Route 66 helps us feel like we're escaping. From hoping to escape the depression and the Dust Bowl, to hoping to escape the office cubicle, the way west has aways meant the way to freedom for Americans. Because…"

MrZip66 replied to Josh Friedrich's discussion Thoughts on a Route 66 passport book
"The best way to do this IMO is to make the passports and give them away for free, and charge a small fee to the stops along the route that are willing to pay for someone to stop into their store. It makes it tougher because most route 66 businesses…"

About Me:
I've been in love with route 66 and old roads since I first saw an article about the mother road in a motorcycle magazine in 1989. I own 2 Harleys: A 2006 FLHX street glide called "road rage" which I've done a ton of engine work on and has 120 horsepower, and a 2006 Fat Boy. I'm the father of 3 daughters and Happily married to my Wife of 19 Years.
Favorite Music:
Classic Rock, Punk Rock, 80s, 70s, 60s, Blues... It's all good. Even some country.
Why are you here
Easy Rider. The grapes of wrath. Cars.
List Of My Favorite Route 66 Places
Seligman because its the heart of the arizona revival. Two guns because it has so much history. Flagstaff because it's the most beautiful riding and the crossroads of so many good rides. Kingman because its proud of it's route 66 past. Amboy because I had the pleasure to spend time talking to buster burris talk about his heyday on the mother road. Grand Canyon Caverns because it's such a unique place that has survived such a massive bypass by interstate 40. Topock because it's in Easy Rider, and it was the gateway to california that mean to much to the okies.

To be honest, there isn't a place that is proud to display a route 66 sign that knows its past that I haven't thoroughly enjoyed and want to go back to.

Whats the big deal about an old road??

It's gotta be different things for different people. I remember the first time I had my first adventure on the mother road it really resonated with me for some reason, and I had no idea why. I just found myself wanting to go back. Every time I found something new. From magazines to Michael Wallis book, I'd find myself wanting to go to those places.



So what is it for you? Why are you on a route 66 social network? Why do you align yourself with Route 66? Why do you spend your vacation… Continue

I love Route 66

Just got back from my first route 66 Trip of the season, and like always, route 66 never stays the same. It's always different. It's amazing that in the 20 plus year's ive been in love with the mother road how much of it has either died or revived. It always makes it interesting. It makes it worth seeing again and again.



I got into route 66 right around 1988. I read an article in a magazine that featured the partridge creek bridge with a tree growing out it and something struck me.… Continue

Thanks for the friend request! Glad to see you get out there and run the back roads like I do. I'm guessing you've checked out my site and know of my background with '66, so I'll just extend a warm welcome until we can cross paths and do the personal hand shake. I do go through St George every year on my way to Sturgis so maybe I'll stop this year if we can arrange a meeting. I'm also planning on going to the big Flagstaff gathering in Sept. since I've got roots on '66 there. Hope to meet you soon.
Ride safe -
Don
