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
