News From Along 66, May, 2017: Devil's Elbow, Funks Grove and Kingman

MAY 2--  A county official declared "Devil's Elbow is gione."  Flooding went over the deck of the famous bridge and hit the roof of the Elbow Inn.  One house in the town came loose and crashed into another one.

Here's hoping for a recovery.  This is one of our favorite places along 66.

MAY 4--  Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner visited Funks Grove Maple Sirip during a small business tour.  Hope he got some of that sirip.

MAY 4--  A neon sign returned to Kingman, Arizona's Route 66 for the first time in 70 years.  It was taken down in the late 1940s.  It reads "Entering El Trovatore Unincorporated.

The Route 66 Association of Kingman neon restoration accomplished it.
