They call it the Mother Road.

4 Jan

One hundred and fourteen days can pass quicker than you think.  Especially at this age.  Have you noticed that the months and years go a little faster now?  It encourages one to do things; to not put them off.

About six weeks ago my very good friend turned 66 and it occurred to me that it was the right time to have a new adventure.  So I called him and said, “Hey, in honor of your 66th birthday what say we drive Rt 66 this spring?”  He was all in.  So now we have 114 days to plan our trip through many states and many miles on America’s historic highway.

IMG_2369There are a hundred questions and a thousand answers.  We’ll get to them all…eventually.  But first we wanted to let you know because you have a role in this.  Some of you may have driven parts of Rt 66 that you remember, or you may have friends that did.  Or maybe you’ve always wanted to.  Whatever the case, we need your help.  So please use the Comments section to let us know what you know of Rt 66.  Where did you stop?  What have you heard?  Where would you like us to pull over and take a photograph for you?  And, pass this blog post to others who may want to share their experiences and share in the trip this spring.

We’ll blog during the trip and post photos each day, but we’ll also start the posts during the planning stages, beginning today. So please join us, help us and have fun with us on the Mother Road.  You can ride shotgun.

    You must go to the Route 66 Diner in Albuquerque, NM. Has to be the best diner ever. Amazing milkshakes and home made pies, left there 20lbs heavier! It was almost 20yrs ago I was there but will never forget it. Also a great city to watch the hot air balloons. They fill the sky and are beautiful. Sounds like this could be a male version of “Thelma & Louise”. ENJOY
