Myself and two neighbors made the drive four years ago, and many of the historic sites we stopped at are in my novel, 'Murder & Mummies on Route 66,' although 90% of the action takes place in and around Albuquerque, NM--a state that I personally have visited numerous time and love.http://www.wrparkbooks.com
Joe just got back from Driving to Rote 66 International Festival in Victorville on Tuesday. Stopped in Illinois on way back to try and find out where Route 66 and Route 6 cross each other in or around Joliet..
Thank you very much Joe! It's been a great day so far! I took my 21 yr. old Son & his Girlfriend to Emma Jean's Holland Burger for lunch. While there I met up with Ron Warnick & Emily Priddy from OK! After that I was able to give them a tour of the CA Route 66 Museum in Victorville CA! An awesome day!
Joe...August sounds pretty good...my wife has her birthday August 10th...be a blast to take a road trip...especially MO & IL....I've only traveled on the Southwestern parts. I've got season 2 of Route 66 to watch tonight...can't wait :)
It look's like the sculpture has been delayed but you know art doesn't just happen. I called the artist last month, very nice man. Whenever it does arrive the piece will be worth the wait. My opinion the councilor is fulla gravel...
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!
