No invite needed. Simply stay tuned to the forums and when you find a run you like, chime in. We love seeing new faces at the rallies.

For anyone in the St Louis area, the St Louis History Museum in Forest Park has a Route 66 exhibit that covers the mother road through Missouri, Not sure how long it is going to be there, I saw it and think it was worth going to.

I often drive out Rt 102 along the River from The Kankakee area to meet up with My Son that works at the Braid-wood Nuclear plant I usually make it a point to see the big green Gemini Man in Manhattan.

Okay... the Route 66 ride begins June 4th from Miami OK. It'll be two weeks so it will end June 17th at the same place.
The first week will be visiting as many Route 66 sites as possible ending at Needles CA. It is anticipated that a detour to the Grand Canyon will be made. The following week will be the return trip to Miami. Perhaps stopping at sites we couldn't visit the first week or just riding 66.

So whose coming?

June 6-8 we will be in Eureka Springs for the NGW event. But we will be around on June 4th and we live just a couple of miles off 66 near Foyil, OK.

To all those who've expressed interest go on this ride...
Because of my recent eye surgery, it is overly optimistic to plan this ride for June. However, I am investigating whether to reschedule this ride for September (2017) or June (2018). We'll keep everyone informed.

Thank you for the well wishes in a speedy recovery and I plan to be riding in the next couple of months!

Sadly out in NM and AZ the only remnants of 66 is turning off the interstate to drive through those little towns.


That's pretty much true in western OK and the Texas panhandle as well. I remember driving I-40 from Oklahoma City to Amarillo in the 70's and at that time I-40 was being built right on top of the US-66 roadbed. Lots of construction detours through those towns then. There is a fairly large Route 66 museum in Elk City, Oklahoma along the old 66 route through town. You might want to check it out.
