Get your kicks on Route 66! That’s the way the song goes. And the tv show followed two drifters in a corvette as they travelled the road in the early 1960’s. It’s an iconic piece of American history that took people westward from Chicago to Santa Monica, California from the 1920’s until the interstate system made it largely obsolete. But instead of dying, the road decayed, and attracted the attention of thousands of history buffs who make this pilgrimage.
I am the latest pilgrim, setting out next week for a two week long drive along the twenty four hundred mile trail. And you, dear reader, will be treated to all the details of this trip! Can’t wait!
That’s part of my story. What’s yours?
