APRIL 11-- There is a fundraiser going on to build a huge Route 66 map to be made entirely of New Mexico license plates to be located near Edgewood, New Mexico. They have raised $5,500 so far and the map will be 40 feet long and 12 feet high. That'sa Big Map.
APRIL 15-- There are Route 66 bills in Congress. One is to name the Mother Road as a National Historic Trail and the other is to set up a Route 66 100th Anniversary Commission. That anniversary is coming up sooner than you'd think.
APRIL 16-- The Old Station in Williamsville, Illinois, has a new owner. We sure enjoyed stopping there back when it was open with all those eccentric items and those neat car models.
