Bits of 66-- Some Sort of New News On the Old Road.
1. BLUE WHALE-- From Feb. 23rd-- Thieves broke into the collection box and stole $15. A local woman has since donated three surveillance cameras. The big fish, er, mammal, has been vandalized twice so far in 2012.
2. THE BOOTS-- From May 7th St. Louis Today-- Five newly redone rooms opened at the Boots Motel in Carthage, Mo., today. Wonder if Bob and Ramona at Munger-Moss will get mad if I stay there. I also want to stay at the Wagon Wheel in Cuba.
3. DENNY'S BIG TRIP-- My buddy Denny just finished a huge 6,269 mile, 28-day trip this past summer, using 240 gallons of gas in doing so. He drove Route 66 the whole way from Chicago to Santa Monica and took a lot of US-70 on the way home.
