"Have a safe trip! I'm sure you will take a few pics to post up. I'd be curious to see what you photo between Ok City and Tulsa. I am going to start at Tulsa and go to Amarillo next year. Have a good one!!"
Hopefully if all goes well, I'll be hitting some new parts of the mother road next weekend.Plan on waking up at 3 AM and riding 1150 miles to Oklahoma City on friday, then mozying back the next few days. I literally cannot wait.See More

"MrZipp & Linda I agree with both of you. After I really found out about Route 66, I realized that it had always been a part of my life. I have always lived and worked in towns on the road. I enjoy traveling, meeting new people, and learning…"
"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…"
"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…"

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.
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.
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
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
Great to have you as a friend a biker and from St George(my crash helmet has a st george flag on it)Also keep posting those great photos loved the old ones remember meeting Juan in Seligman years ago also his son both now missed from the road.Keep it shiny side up best wishes Mark.
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.

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!
