Route 66 January 2015

JANUARY 22ND:Pacific, Missouri, gets a grant to help buy the Lookout on Jensen's Point.  We've driven by it several times and it sure looks impressive and there has to be a great view.  That is, if I can get up all those steps.  It would be great to have this open for the public again.

JANUARY 23RD:  Gary Turner, owner of Gay Parita Sinclair gas station, west of Halltown, Missouri, died.  A real Route 66ers who really loved his road.  He turned that place into a must-visit site.  Hope someone continues for him.

JANUARY 25TH:  Ernie Banks, Mr. Cub, of the Chicago Cubs died.  Broke the Cubs color barrier as first black to play for them.  Make sure to check out his Wrigley Field and statue outside of it.

JANUARY 27TH:   The city of museums gets yet another one.  Pontiac, Illinois,  will be getting the Illinois Basketball Museum set to open in the summer of 2016.  Pontiac sure has the museums.


JANUARY 29TH:  Rock Creek Bridge near Sapulpa, Oklahoma reopened for traffic.  IO sure love my Route 66 bridges and hate to lose one.  Well, we got this one back.
