Taken from the Route 66 News Site which has more information and pictures and many more entries. I just take the ones of interest to me.
MAY 2-- Laurel Kane of Afton Station in Oklahoma will be inducted into the Oklahoma Route 66 Hall of Fame. A well-deserved honor for a woman who did so much for the old road. We were able to meet and talk with her on several occasions.
MAY 2-- Trailer for "Missouri Maze" film released, about Route 66 through the Ozarks in that state. A lot of the trailer featured video of John's Modern Cabins, a favorite stop we make whenever in Missouri. It just sums up what we're losing.
MAY 3-- The Route 66 Car Museum will be opening next month in Springfield, Missouri, at 1624 W. College Street (Route 66). It will include a 1926 Hudson used in the 1939 movie "The Grapes of Wrath" among others. Admission is $15. We can never have too many museums along the route.
MAY 3-- A reporter is walking the length of Oklahoma City's Route 66 alignment. Brianna Bailey of the Oklahoman is walking a mile a day and taking pictures and writing about what she see. You can read her daily reports. She wrote about motels that are in bad shape.
