Very cool!

I recently timed out - courtesy of Google - how long a Route 66 trip would take. The big problem was getting there and back... Coming from the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, that alone would take over a week of hard driving.

But some day... some day...

I'd love to visit any of those places. So cool!

I definitely wish I could drive all of Route 66 - - 40 years ago! What a unique American experience, and one that has vanished.
