We ordered some helpful maps and also a book with Route 66 tourist info from Amazon.com the other day. Well, they cam in yesterday and at first glance, seem VERY helpful. The maps actually have the old part of the highway drawn out, with wonderful stops along the way.
Here’s what the front cover of one of the maps looks like:
We plan on driving out non-stop to Arizona; then, while coming back slowly (over the course of about five days) we plan on taking in a lot of stops along the way. I’d like to get pics of old Route 66 signage, any deserted towns we might pass through; and cool looking vistas.
My June column in the Linn County Leader will deal exclusively on the trip, and then in July, I’ll be doing a follow-up with pics. I’ll also be uploading some pics after we get back of the journey.
