Along 66, March 2018: Motels and a Pump
These stories are taken from the Route 66 News site. I just write about the ones of most interest to me. The site has stories for just about every day and a lot more detail.
FEBRUARY 28-- The signs at the Paradise Motel in Tucumcari have been removed. The motel has been long abandoned and has had two fires in the last six months. The signs will be restored, but sadly, placed in a private collection.
Well, at least they will still be around.
MARCH 1-- The El Vado Motel restoration is nearly done in Albuquerque. It will be a 22-room boutique motel which will also have food pods and retail stores.
MARCH 4-- An old pump was stolen from the historic gas station in Miami, Oklahoma. This place is located near the beginning of the Ribbon 66.
