    Cayuga, Il. At one time there were hundreds of these barns across the country advertising the Meramec Caverns. The Illinois Route 66 Association repaints this when needed. It's another of our preservation projects.

    Sure thing,

    The twisting road is outside of Oatman Arizona on the way to Toprock

    The American flag mural was a great bar a couple miles outside of Kingman Arizona going east. I think it was called Mike's

    I was in Lexington, Illinois today and there is a promising new place about to open at the corner of Main Street and Old US 66. They are biker friendly -- the designation for motorcycle parking was just completed, and there is a BSA in the air over the roof. Kelly Tobin, "Owner and Pizza Master", as per his business card, told me that he used to race in AMA.

    There will be indoor and outdoor seating and carryout too.

    The carryout counter utilizes the driver side of a Chevy Truck

    They are hard at work, getting ready to open (maybe in a couple weeks), but were nice enough to let me come in and wander around. It's going to be a neat place, where you will probably spot new details at each visit.

    The restroom sign made me chuckle:

    Out in front is a bench where Rt.66 Fans can pose for a picture. Here's the man in charge of Kelly's on 66:

    Best wishes for a successful business launch! It's going to be a great place to visit.
