Drive Route 66!

It's time to drive Route 66!

I've uploaded a website meant to share my recent experiences on the Mother Road. I hope you'll point your browser here:

Visiting my new site, you'll search for the "Gemini Giant," visit a gas station selling 400 kinds of pop, meet the unofficial "Mayor of Route 66," tour a real Texas ghost town, and hang out with the Bottle Tree Man.

I developed this site to give you a mile-by-mile feel of Route 66 and maybe even offer some tips for helping you plan your next road trip.

So head on over -- drive the whole road with me or use the map to select the states that interest you most.

One more thing: This site is in development, and I've surely left some typos or opportunities for clarification. So if you spot any parts of the pages that need a touch-up, let me know!

When you head back on 66 again, make sure to explore that final, forgotten segment in Los Angeles, the one that so many travelers like you think is gone, or has nothing left. Along Los Angeles County's portion of 66 are no fewer than 35 National Register of Historic Places landmarks, the first freeway portion of 66, the only vehicular tunnels on 66, the oldest museum in Los Angeles, and countless other treasures. Furthermore, make sure you don't miss the original terminus at 7th and Broadway in Downtown Los Angeles, then head west and check out the actual western-most terminus at Lincoln and Olympic in Santa Monica. (No, 66 did not actually ever go to the beach or the Pier!)
