Another stop on Route 66

After many delays and missed opportunities, I was finally able to make a stop at the midway point on Route 66 in Adrian, Texas. I’ve only seen it from interstate 40 and in photos other people have shot. I wasn’t disappointed at all. Unfortunately, the cafe was closed, so lunch at the Midpoint was out …

Road Trippin’ on Route 66

Route 66. Those words conjure up something magical, something mysterious, something nostalgic. it’s The Mother Road. People come from all over the world to make the journey. It’s almost as if it’s a pilgrimage. Even though it was decommissioned back in the 1980s, it’s one road…one piece of history that refuses to die. The spirit …

You read that right….get lost!  There aren’t very many things more annoying on a road trip than sticking to a schedule or itinerary. Let’s face it: they both suck.

Howdy everyone….I just added some photos of the Stokely Event Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Not quite on Route 66, but not far away.  This place features all original neon signs from days gone by.  It should be a museum, but they rent the place for private parties.  However….I’m sure of you’re in the area…and they …

I just added about a dozen new photos to the slide show on here, just working on getting a gallery page set up. I’ll admit, I’m still trying to figure out how the widget works…as soon as I stop having brainfarts, I’ll make sure it’s posted.

This will be an ever-evolving work, which will also include some personal reviews of hotels, motels, and restaurants I encounter out on …
