Along 66, Dec. 2017: Joliet Correctional Center and Ron Warnick
From the Route 66 News Site.
DECEMBER 22-- Joliet, Illinois, strikes deal to rent out old Joliet Correctional Center. There will be a five-year lease to take some responsibility for the long-closed and deteriorating structure built in 1858.
Perhaps a bed and breakfast? Sleep where John Belushi slept?
DECEMBER 30-- Editor of the Route 66 News, Ron Warnick, is moving to Tucumcari, New Mexico. He and his wife have long wanted to live there and she has a teaching job.
When I saw that the Blue Swallow Motel had come up for sale in Tucumcari for $165,000, I seriously thought about ir, but decided running a motel was too much work.
Of course, we all owe Ron a huge thanks for continuing with his Route 66 News blog. If there is anything you want to know about the Mother Road, this is where you go.
