Traveling Route 66 - on the road for TWO MONTHS


Over two years in the planning, our Route 66 trip is finally happening. My husband and I will be riding our motorcycles from our home base in Tennessee to Chicago. From there we'll follow as much of the original Route 66 all the way to Santa Monica. We plan to take our time, sightseeing as much as we want and we should arrive at the end of the route by the end of September.

Then we will travel north on the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH/US101), taking time to visit Yosemite National Park before heading back south for a weather dictated route home. Again, we plan to take our time but should arrive home no later than the end of October.

The month of November will be the busiest month of all, our preparation and packing for our move to Ecuador. Gulp!

  2. One of Bill's big dreams was to follow Route 66. We were able to do most of it with a small caravan giving out Roadside Attraction awards/signs in 2003. It was after that he was diagnosed with colon cancer so it was the fulfillment of a special dream to get to do this.

    We traveled with 3 men representing Hampton Inn. Guy Randall documented our trip. You may already be familiar with many of these icons, but you could check out each state at http://www.theroadwanderer.net/66caravan/index.htm We had an awesome time and met many people along the road who work for its preservation.

    Have fun!
