Along 66, June 2018: Hey, Tropics Sign and Joliet Prison

JUNE 25--  The Tropics sign is relit in Lincoln, Illinois!!!  Can't wait to see it.

JUNE 26--  National Trust for Historic Preservation places Route 66 on it endangered list.  This is the second time for this.  This is mostly because of problems getting the National Historic Trail classification..  It must be passed by the Senate and signed by the president.

I'm not too worried about this as Route 66 will continue with or without the classification.  But, it would be better to have it and Route 66 deserves it.  That was/is one important road in our country's history.

JUNE 28--  The old Joliet Prison event will have a Blue Brothers tribute band  and Dan Ackroyd has been invited to attend.

It will be held in August and will feature the Blooze Brothers and two other bands.
