Historic Route 66

by Kay~Kacey on 5/5/2011

I grew up less than a mile from Route 66.

Route 66

Route 66 is one of the original US highways and runs from Chicago to LA. It was “established” (whatever that means…) in 1926. They removed US 66 from the official US highways in 1985. (who does that??) ’cause, you know, the Interstate System was new and better. :roll:

Anyway…while we were out antiquing last week, part of our journey was along the Historic Route 66. I told SuperGuy to STOP. THE. CAR.  I wanted to get a picture of the Route 66 sign.  He keeps driving…somewhere…I’m like “NO. Stop here!” He’s thinking I’m looking for a Route 66 sign. Nope. I jump out of the car and into the line of traffic…which thankful stopped…and got this photo of Route 66 stamped and worn in the roadway.

…and I lived to tell the tale. I tell you, there’s not much I wouldn’t do to get a photo that I want!

Bravo. I’ve never seen this before. Totally cool and something I would have done. But NEVER with my husband, who would never have stopped.
