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 :)
