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.
