Travelling The Mother Road Route 66 was the reason for this blog so it seems only fair that I give it a whole page of its own. Here you will find blog posts relating to the planning of our road trip across the USA, links to websites we found useful and the unfolding story of our trip. Hopefully in time it will become a useful resource to others planning to do the trip so if you have any questions then feel free to drop me a line.
These three books gave us plenty of inspiration and help in planning our road trip
The following blog posts are presented in ascending order so that you can follow our road trip from the planning stage and onwards. They are full of my musings on the places we visited, images of route 66, some stories of the people we met along the way and some tips. I hope you find them enjoyable.
We left the Big Texan early and headed just out of Amarillo to the Cadillac Ranch. For those who don’t know what the ranch is, its essentially a bunch of Old cadillac’s buried nose down in the desert in 1974
When i was first researching where we were going to go on route 66 i came across the following video about a ghost town called Cuervo. It sounded so “American Detective” or “Twin Peaks” i just had to make a pull in off the I40 to check it out.
