Route 66

On a trip over to the US from Scotland is Rob , who for some reason is travelling the whole length of old Route 66 from Chicago to LA. I don’t know if he will post many photos of the trip (I hope he does). But I found this video of someone’s travels. Wow, some portions o fthat road look rather exciting. A lot of freeways have paved over the old road, but it looks like there are still a lot of miles of back streets and small towns.


Nice trip, I think I’d like to do that someday as well.

Living in New Jersey I first heard about this road from reruns of the old TV show from 1960.

Thanks for the clips. Actually once we finish R66 and say goodbye to our LA friends we're heading up the coast, spending one night on the way and then three in San Francisco. So it's sort of "Route 66+".

What fun to see that clip Joe, I think Route 66 looks very different from those days right!
