I've run the entire length of Rt 66 & pieces of it several times when it was the only road. That was waaay before the interstates. Believe me, it was no fun then. Later, I used to go several states out of my way to NOT go on it. As you get farther into NM, AZ & CA, sections of the road are still what they were then. Winslow & Oatman AZ come immediately to mind....

So, Gruuv, you over here now??? I've been wondering how you were doing.

Great rr. You would have enjoyed a stop in Erick, OK if Harley and Annabelle are still performing. It was the most amusing highlight of our trip to the Grand Canyon by Rt 66.

Are you referring to the Roger Miller museum? I did pass that though I had it on my GPS waypoint list. If so I'll stop there on my way back out West to finish the trip. Thanks for the heads up.

I didn't have any schedule just rode until I was tired and hungry and then found a place to eat and got a cheap room. Worked out well that way with no pressure to be anyway. Mileage would vary of course in OK I didn't get too far each day as there was so much to see, In TX I had less to see and with only 243 miles to go in that state I rode it and the part of NM in one day easily. I found it most enjoyable to not worry about the time.

OH, I saw the barricade and just turned around and backtracked I'll pick that portion up on my way back to NM Thanks!

No, we missed that one. Harley and Annabelle converted an old shop to a Rt 66 museum of sorts - mainly they sing "Get Your Kicks on Rt 66," and entertain for tips.

Route 66 Bar

Found this last weekend - route 66 bar about 30 miles west of Albuquerque where hwy 6 joins i 40. About 1.5 miles south on 6. The old route 66 road bed runs past the bar.

This gives an idea of what the cut-off looks like:

Awesome, I did not know about them but I'll be sure to put it on my list for my next trip west on the Route. Thanks! By the way I had "look for Tin Lizzy" for Eric you know anything about that?

up.
We stopped by accident in Erick just to see what was there. A crusty old couple in a beat up pickup told us about Harley and Annabelle's place a block or so off Rt 66. Ten min after we got there the same crusty old couple opened the museum and began entertaining - we knew we'd been had but didn't care.

Super, good to have you along too! The more the merrier. Can't wait to get back out and finish the last bit of NM, AZ & CA. Should be a ball.
