Driving Route 66 had been talked about for years and finally we did it. The Ultimate Road Trip!! Starting our adventure in the fantastic City Of Chicago taking in the sights and the start of Route 66 and breakfast at the famous Lou Mitchell's before we picked up the car. It was an exciting journey as we passed the many wonders that is Route 66 but some have to be mentioned in more detail ie the amazing Vrooman Mansion in Bloomington. A historic house restored to its original splendour and is an experience I will not forget. In Missouri we travelled to the top of the Gateway Arch to see the full splendour of the Mississippi River. On through Kansas and Baxter Springs crossing the Oklahoma State Line and driving on to Texas staying at the Big Texan Motel. We finally reach Adrian after hours of travelling and it was great to drive into the Mid Point Café with its home made apple pie and cakes. This is a great place to pick up T Shirts and you will find other Route 66 travellers who have stopped for a break. You will find yourself talking to them and sharing your trip plans. On to New Mexico with its Car Museum in Santa Rosa and taking the Santa Fe Loop we head for Arizona driving through the Painted Forest and staying at the Wigwam Motel in Holbrook. We arrive in Winslow. Route 66 has most definitely made its mark. The Eagles have made this small town famous and we were not disappointed. Taking in the Meteor Crater we stop for two nights and the stunning Grand Canyon where we had an all day tour booked. This for me was one of the highlights of the trip and I feel I have to go back one more time to visit the Grand Canyon. Passing Seligman, Hackberry, Kingman, Oatman and Needles the weird and wonderful that is Route 66 is here. After driving for hours with hardly no traffic we reach the mayhem that is LA and the end of our 2495 miles journey. We have so many memories and stories to tell. Have fun!
