Just wondering when you made your trip, what month was it. Was it easy to follow?

It's pretty hard to follow the original US 90. A few years back I did a report on the OST from the Texas border to Lafayette, but have attempted to follow it to New Orleans. Been rerouted and rename and at some places or replaced with I-10 or gone.

Thinking of connecting with some of the Old 66 in Oklahoma maybe next summer and run it to California. Need to get to planning next years trips.
Writing down all the Must See spots along the route.

New Iberia to Morgan City then over to Houma, up to New Orleans then on to Bay St. Louis, etc.

Fantastic read, very inspirational. I grew up in Tulsa but have been away for years. Your writing and photography draw me in.

Wow Mike!! What a great report! Route 66 is on my list of rides to do in the future. I'll be hitting you up for the maps someday. That GS is suiting you pretty well it looks like.

Hi Ted, good to hear from you. Thanks for the kind words, yes I am enjoying my GS for sure. Any time you want the GPS info just let me know, you would love it too. Hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas.

Thanks

I enjoyed your ride report. I spent part of my childhood in Springfield, MO. and remember one of the old restaurants along the route in town, The Stuffed Pig, served a very juicy and flavorful sandwich called the stuffed pig, great food. The owner, Johnny Weatherwax, was killed in a robbery in 73 and the recipe died with him.

Great ride report. Thanks for posting it. You have inspired me to get out and see a lot of those things that I live so close to but have not taken the time to see. Thanks again!
