I was standin' on a corner in Winslow Oklahoma, such a fine sight to see... It's a girl, my Lord ina flatbed Ford, slowing down to take a look at me.....(The Eagles) There is a mural in Winslow, that show a girl in a flatbed ford painted on a building. I am lucky to have married a girl that will do a 2000 mile trip in an older reg cab flatbed ford, with an old dog sharing that bench seat.....

Big 50? I hardly remember it. Congratulations! When passing through Springfield,IL stop by Mel-O-Cream donuts and be sure to pick up a chocolate honeymooner. Have fun on your trip!

Congrats on the big 5-0! Its all down hill from here.... no not really. I was born in 55 and I feel like I am in my 30's until I look in the mirror and see an old man staring back at me!

When you get to Winslow, Arizona take a pic of yourself standing on the corner so you can post it here for us.

Have fun.

Wonder if that corner park, and statue, are still fenced off. The building behind the mural is now gone because they found asbestos. The wall with the mural was saved the last time I went through there. Stu

Rob Happy Birthday Brother! I am sorry I haven't called you since I have been back. I thought work would be slower, but we are working overtime! Never heard of, in the winter, for us.
I have been trying to utilize any free time on the truck, and I got some things to do around the house as well.
I have 2 more years before the big "50"

Thanks everyone for the well wishes and the travel tips! I'm taking names and notes and hope to meet up with as many as possible during our trip.

Believe me an F-250 diesel truck and nice trailer are on my wish list but maybe not in my budget!

Ross, Ed (EAK69) has family here in town and he stopped by our farm on one of his trips through so I know of his knowledge of Route 66 and his website. I will be talking to him before our trip.

you're gonna have a great time

Rob
Get set for the trip of a lifetime. My wife and I did Rt 66 from Chicago to LA in two sections in my 49 Ford Convertible ( slightly customized). The first was from Chicago to Amarillo, in 2011 and then from Amarillo to LA in 2013. I'd encourage you to take it as slow as time will allow--we only travelled about 100-125 miles a day. Obviously that's not possible for a lot of people. Be prepared to meet TONS of foreigners--Germans, Spaniards, Dutch, French Italians--they all travel 66 and I honestly think I met more of them than Americans--(Sad). You'll also meet the Aussies and Kiwis traveling West to East.
Just to get your excitement level up, here are some links to my Photobucket Website that has pics, hundreds actually, of our trip and what you can expect to see.
Let me know if you need some help with resources for planning the trip. Bill

I tried this out and it doesn't seem to be working as expected, however, it does get you to my photobucket site. Click on the 2011 or 2013 options on the left side drop down and then click on each day in order to see the pics from that day. most have some explanation as well
Bill
