Along 66, December 2017: Devil's Elbow Bridge and "Vacation"

These articles are from the Route 66 News site.  There is usually a post for every day and a lot more information.  I just pick the ones of most interest to me.  But if you want the best coverage of the road, go to Ron Warnick's Route 66 News site.

DECEMBER 2--  Devil's Elbow Bridge in Missouri was damaged in an accident.  Weight restrictions have been imposed.  3,000  pounds.

That poor bridge has sure taken a pounding this past year, what with the floods in spring and now this.

DECEMBER 4--  Even though this is not really Route 66 so much, it is about one of my all-time favorite movies "National Lampoon's Vacation."  Adam the Woo (now there's a name) made a 34-minute video which you can see at the Route 66 News site.  He flew to Chicago and rented a car and "followed" the Griswalds across the country.

Surprisingly, none of the cast was in Illinois or St. Louis, but those scenes filmed by the crews.

Very Interesting.  --RoadDog
