We arrived yesterday after a two-day trip.
A few highlights so far.
** A stop at the Ambler-Becker station in Dwight, Illinois, for their Route 66 90th birthday party. Had a nice talk with John Weiss.
** Dixie Truck Stop in McLean, Illinois.
** Mahan Gas Station in Springfiled, Illinois at Fulgenzi's Pizza. As happy as were were to see it there, we were even more saddened by looking at the empty Billl Shea's That really hurt.
** Drinks at George Rank's, Springfield's only Round Bar.
** You-Know-Whats at Cozy Dog.
** The TraveLodge/Lodge Motel is no more
** Route 66 Hotel and Convention Center, Filling Station Bar
