We just got back to the room at the Munger Moss Motel in Lebanon, Missouri, where we had a great talk with a bunch of 66 roadies, both new and old.
I went back to the room to get drinks, and when I came back, thee was a younger guy talking with the others.
Turns out, this is his first-ever trip on Route 66 and from what I saw, he is addicted already.
He is making the trip in one week and still is leaving for Springfield, Missouri, I guess you can head out at midnight for some place down the road.
We told him about places to go.
He was wearing an "I Survived US-129" shirt. Never heard of it. Sounds like it is also an experience, packing over a hundred turns in just eleven miles and located between Tennessee and North Carolina. Actually, the number is 318 turns, Folks who know it call it the "Dragon" or "Dragon's Tail."
Looks like I'll have somewhere else to check out next drive to NC.
