Route 66 will be 100 years old in 2026
Is there interest in a Route 66 Trip? In 2026 the famous Route 66 will be 100 years old. Many small towns along that highway are gearing up for a big celebration and are already getting excited about welcoming travelers. If there is interest, I need to get a jump on reservations for hotels, etc along this iconic highway. I am figuring it would take about three weeks to do the complete mother road. Another option might be to just do the sections in Illinois or part of Missouri. Yes, we could do one direction… but the bus would have to come back so we might as well be on it! I did have someone suggest that we take one group out west and fly them home and then fly a second group out and bus them home… So, I know some of you are really giving this trip some thought. Let me know your thoughts!
