Bits O' 66: Waldmire-- Joplin

Bits 'O 66--  Some bits of news about the old road.


1.  WALDMIRE:--  From the Oct. 12, 2012, Pontiac Daily Leader.  A movie crew was at the Route 66 Museum and Hall of Fame filming Bob Walmire's school bus and van for a documentary on our late-great friend and one of those characters you meet along Route 66.  Looking forward to seeing it.


2.  JOPLIN:  From the Oct. 20, 2012, Kansas City Star.  Joplin, Missouri is still recovering from that devastating May 2011 tornado, but will host the International Route 66 Festival Aug. 1-3, 2013.  Also connected to the event, will be a meeting of the eight state Route 66 Associations and National Park Service which will explore ways of preserving and promoting the road.

The last two festivals have been held in Victorville, California, and Amarillo, Texas.

We're planning on going to this one.
