So, for about a year now, Nat & I have started to really get into Route 66. I am not sure why really, but Route 66 fascinates me! We recently drove from our home in the Inland Empire to the New Mexico border - essentially we traveled the entire Arizona portion of Route 66. It was awesome - getting to spend time with my beautiful wife, getting to see real live history, and to enjoy steak & eggs…. just an amazing trip!
The sights along Route 66 are like no others - they aren’t perfectly produced spectacles with glitz and glamour - no, they are examples of people digging in and using homegrown ingenuity to come up with ideas that they think will make people spend time (and, yes, money) at their particular part of the “Mother Road.” Things like Giaganticus Headicus, or the one of kind barber shop in Seligman, or Mr D’s Diner - they are things you wont see anywhere else. And even the countless gift shops all carry things that are very unique to Route 66.
Natalie has started collecting Route 66 shot glasses - and they can get pretty unique! I could go on and on, but the point is, Route 66 is awesome!
Thanks for readin!
