**** BACKGROUND ****

None of my yearly road trips have taken me all the way to California or welcomed people to join me for part or all of the DRIVING portions of the trip; this one will do BOTH...and follow the path of "The Mother Road".... I am planning a cruise along Route 66 ... with stops at icons and places along the way to explore Route 66 and, of course, meet people. This is an invitation to ALL to join this "convoy" from Illinois to California ... or any place along the way you are able to meet.

This event developed from a suggestion by ChevyTalk's Bobs53PU...and, because of my own interest in Route 66, I ran with the idea. I'm curious about Route 66 because I enjoy older cars and roads. The song "Route 66" has had a part in my interest, and a special on PBS about a mother/daughter duo who took the Route 66 trip also peaked my interest. BUT...what deepened my curiosity about Route 66 was the movie "Cars". Strange, yes, but "Cars" featured a lot of scenes from Route 66 ... and was based on actual people and places along Route 66. It also featured history of the road, and illustrated the effect of interstates, such as I-40, on life along Route 66.

Since the movie "Cars", I've made a mental note that "one day" I'd travel the basic path of Route 66, of which I personally have not driven much. I was along it somewhat during my October 2004 road trip...

...and again a bit in Oklahoma City and through IL during my October 2006 trip:
http://www.chevyasylum.com/cort/1106/1106.html


IMHO, this is a chance of a lifetime; I hope others agree...and join this "convoy"....

**** OTHER ROUTES & TRAVELING ****

In researching Route 66, I've discovered other "old routes".


One is the LINCOLN HIGHWAY, with which I'm somewhat familiar, given the historic marker signs along IL RT 38 through Geneva IL towards Elburn IL and points farther west. I've also driven much of the LH, including the path in IL as well as along I-80 in Wyoming during my aforementioned October 2004 road trip and during my trips back and forth to PA via RT 30. Unlike Route 66, the LH covers the United States, coast to coast. Maybe someday I'll find/have time to travel that ENTIRE route and, if I do, it'll be a planned event, similar to this one.

Another is US ROUTE 20:
http://www.usroute20.com/

...which goes directly through my hometown of Elgin IL! So, I drive along it a lot each week ... as well as when I use RT 20 to go to Rockford, Freeport and Galena IL....

And, of course, THE DIXIE HIGHWAY:

**** PBS SPECIALS ****

A program about Route 66 was broadcast on PBS a few times last year. It featured a mother and daughter traveling Route 66 in a rented Mustang convertible and highlighted several sites along Route 66, including the Wigwam motel (featured in the movie "Cars").

While preparing this cruise along Route 66, I watched the PBS special about the LINCOLN HIGHWAY...and my interest and enthusiasm for the LH increased. "A Ride Along the Lincoln Highway", an exploration of the nation's first coast-to-coast highway (NYC to San Francisco, spanning 14 states), was broadcast on Chicago's WTTW, Channel 11, Wednesday, October 29, 8p-9p.




**** POSSIBLE BOOK OFFER ****

ChevyTalk.org's hinckley wrote _Route 66 Backroads_:
http://www.voyageurpress.com/Store/ProductDetails_40566.ncm

He kindly had a copy mailed to me. I have reviewed it (and plan to read it completely soon); it is an AWESOME book. I hope that, for those planning to join us on this "convoy", Jim Hinckley's book may be purchased at a discounted price. I am in the process of ironing out those details. Once that is complete, I will advise further...so watch for updates!




**** FUNDRAISERS ****

These will be for non-profit organizations; details to be arranged.


The Illinois Route 66 Heritage Project...
http://www.illinoisroute66.com/
...is the beneficiary while we meet at the Cozy Dog (Springfield IL) and The Ariston Cafe (Litchfield IL).


The Adult Congenital Heart Association...
http://www.achaheart.org
...is the beneficiary while we meet at the Cafe on the Route (Baxter Springs KS), the Big Texan Steak Ranch (Amarillo TX), the Wigwam Motel (Holbrook AZ); travel the longest uninterrupted stretch of RT 66 (Ash Fork AZ - Topock AZ); and visit (by arrangement) the Route 66 "Mother Road" Museum (Barstow CA).




**** SPONSORSHIPS ****

Yes, this trip is expensive. I hope to secure companies or groups as "sponsors" of portions of the trip (meals, hotels/motels, attractions, the "Cars" movie, gas stops, etc.) to assist with the costs and encourage more people to participate and more to donate to the worthy causes.


KUDOS to one such sponsor ... the FIRST GENERATION MONTE CARLO CLUB! Dues paying FGMCC members who participate in this event for more than 100 miles will each receive a $25 gas card. In addition, the FGMCC will sponsor food for everyone at one stop in IL, up to $100.



If you have suggestions of a company(s) or group(s) that might consider such a contribution to this event, please advise me.




**** THE PEOPLE ****

This is for ALL ages and levels of interest in Route 66. The FOCUS is OLDER cars, but newer cars are welcome, too! If you'd like to participate and want to ride with someone, please advise. We'll see what we can do to assist in making such arrangements.

I'm posting this to various groups/clubs:

**** AFTER THE DRIVE ****

If any of you thinking about joining this are wondering how you'll get your vehicle back home, I may have a solution.

A cousin of mine works for All Wheels Recovery ... and has told me that he can haul cars back from California in September. If you are interested in this, please let me know ASAP....




**** RADIO STATIONS ****

I've been thinking it might be cool to tell classic rock and classic country radio stations along the way about this ... to see if they'd want to come out when we are in their area.... I just need to find out and contact stations along the way....




**** PLACES TO BE CONTACTED ****

This is why I need you to let me know you are thinking about joining this, even if you aren't sure at this point if you will or not. In planning this, the following places (as well as hotels/motels for places to stay and restaurants for meals along the way) will need to be contacted.....

**UPDATE**

My MAJOR 2009 road trip is ~4 MONTHS away!


REMEMBER ... I need to know if you are even thinking of joining us, so I can plan accordingly. Please post here...

ITINERARY/DETAILS...IN THE "IRONING OUT" STAGE!

... The CURRENT ITINERARY is the one posted (above) in early March. However, given the "fine tuning" of details, changes WILL be made. I'll post a "final" itinerary closer to September, but for those thinking/planning to join OR meet us somewhere along the way, it will not be far from what it is now.... Course, I expect the "spontaneous experiences" along the road will alter the itinerary as we drive....


... I've started contacting Route 66 businesses and Associations to discuss possibilities/details and have received wonderful responses. I look forward to further replies and information. "Highlights" and websites related to these conversations include:

http://www.ratfinkgarage.com/

Visits to places to be put on the itinerary, including...
...the Blue Swallow Motel, Tucumcari NM
http://blueswallowmotel.com/

...and a tour of the California Route 66 Museum (Victorville), right before the ending dinner (which will push the dinner back to about 5:30p or 6p, instead of starting at the current itinerary time of 4:30p)....
http://www.califrt66museum.org/



So...will YOU join or meet up with us somewhere along the Route?

*** ITINERARY/DETAILS UPDATE ***

Changes to the CURRENT ITINERARY (posted in early March) are taking place.

In the NEXT UPDATE (a month or so from now), I will post a REVISED ITINERARY which will incorporate the links and list of places to visit I have noted in the last update and below in this update. I also hope to have a few more details ironed out/in process.



In the meantime, more notes....

1 ... Even if you are just THINKING about joining us for any part of this, PLEASE ADVISE ME...NOW! I am hoping to secure more sponsors and, perhaps, some blocks of rooms and restaurant reservations along the way.


2 ... I've continued to contact Route 66 businesses and associations to discuss possibilities/details and have received welcoming replies thus far. I look forward to more feedback and plans being made as I continue to make contacts in the next month or so....


3 ... To continue the list of visits to places, etc., that I started in the last update, "highlights" for additional contacts I've made thus far since that last update include:

If you're gonna swing down my way (Baxter Springs), why not go by "Mater's" place? Between Joplin & Baxter Springs, there's a town called Galena, KS. The guy & truck that "Mater" was based off of is in this town. Tow Mater sits out front just off of HWY66 on Main Street in Galena. Since the whole trip was partially inspired by the movie, might as well see the real thing. The filmmakers got the inspiration for driving backwards when he showed them how he could turn his feet completely around! Kind of painful to watch, but cool none the less. If I'm back from my honeymoon by then, I'd be happy to show you where Mater resides & follow along from Joplin to OKC.

Be warned about Cafe on the Route, it's good food, but it was expensive last time I ate there. My grandfather used to own the building when it was called Murphey's Restaurant. He sold it in the 80's & Murphey's new owners' relocated across the street. It's also curbside parking. I know it should seat what they are claiming, but parking close to the cafe will only happen for a few cars.

AWESOME! Hope you are back by then.

BTW ... this IS now in the schedule/itinerary. I have revised it ... and it is posted below.... The most-revised part of the trip is Joplin MO through Oklahoma ... so take a good look!

I'm hoping some of the other OK guys (particularly Tulsa/Oklahoma City areas, etc.) see this ... and can meet up with us along the way.....


Rago wrote:Be warned about Cafe on the Route, it's good food, but it was expensive last time I ate there.

Well, with the revised schedule, stopping there for a meal has been eliminated. I hope to have time to at least stop in and look around, but we'll see.....



UPDATE!!!


**** NOTES ****

Please review the NEW itinerary; it HAS CHANGED ... particularly the portion from Joplin MO to Oklahoma to Holbrook AZ.

ALL times are APPROXIMATE; travel times based on 30 mph.

I will bring my DVD of the movie "Cars" and a DVD player. Perhaps we can plan to watch the movie some evening or during a meal...?

My __CELL PH#__ is in my signature below.

Please advise if you are thinking of joining us and/or meeting along the way...!!!

For the places noted as "TBD" and "possibly", if you have any SUGGESTIONS or IDEAS of places to eat or stay overnight, please advise me ... I need ideas from "local people"!

**** TBDs (PLACES TO STAY / EAT) ****

If you have overnight accommodations or restaurant suggestions for the "TBD" (to be determined) places in the most-recent itinerary posted, please advise me!

I am researching possibilities; however, not everything will be finalized. In some cases, I may list possibilities so we can decide as we go; in other cases, TBDs may remain until we arrive....



**** MONTE CARLO AZ ****

A friend sent me this link ... which I will include in the next update of the itinerary in a few weeks....:
http://www.theroadwanderer.net/RT66ashfork.htm



**** WHICH CAR TO DRIVE? ****

For those of you that are planning to join us anywhere along the route, what will you be driving?


I'm not sure yet what I will drive. I may drive my 1976 Monte Carlo Landau:
http://www.chevyasylum.com/cort/mc1976/76monte.html

Of my MCs, that one is probably the most appropriate for Route 66; however, to be "road trip worthy", it needs new tires, probably a good wax, and a different radio (currently has the original AM radio)...or at least a different way to listen to tunes along the way....

Course, I may decide just to rent a car ... we'll see.....

**** BACKGROUND / ROAD TRIPS ****

Since 2003, I've done at least one road trip per year to see/meet family/friends....

October 2004, west:
http://www.chevyasylum.com/cort/0410/0410.html

August 2005, east:
http://www.chevyasylum.com/cort/0508/0508.html

October 2006, west:
http://www.chevyasylum.com/cort/1106/1106.html

November 2007, southeast:
http://www.chevyasylum.com/cort/200711/200711.html

August 2008, east:
http://www.chevyasylum.com/cort/200808/2008rt.html


SEPTEMBER 2009, SOUTHWEST:
This year's trip follows the "Mother Road"...Route 66! Consider this YOUR INVITATION to join this "convoy" from Illinois to California. ALL ARE WELCOME ... REGARDLESS of transportation mode [I will rent a car, so I can enjoy the road, the people and the places more] OR how long you can join us. If you can only meet up for a morning breakfast, a daily stop, or an evening dinner, that is ENCOURAGED!


This developed from a suggestion by ChevyTalk's Bobs53PU...and, because of my own interest in Route 66, I ran with the idea. My interest in Route 66 (and other famous roads) is partly because of my interest in nostalgia and old vehicles ... partly because of the song "Route 66" ... partly because of a PBS special about a mother/daughter duo who drove Route 66 in a rented Mustang convertible ... and partly because of the movie "CARS", which featured a lot of scenes from Route 66, was based on actual people/places along Route 66, and featured history of the road, illustrating the effect of interstates, such as I-40, on life along Route 66. I will bring my DVD of the movie "Cars" and a DVD player. Perhaps we can plan to watch the movie some evening or during a meal....



Future travel plans:

LINCOLN HIGHWAY, which runs along IL RT 38 through Geneva IL towards Elburn IL, etc.
http://www.lincolnhighwayassoc.org/


US ROUTE 20, which runs through my hometown, Elgin IL, and out to Rockford/Freeport/Galena IL.
http://www.usroute20.com/


US ROUTE 2
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Route_2


THE DIXIE HIGHWAY
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dixie_Highway


US northeast ... Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, etc.

US northwest ... Montana, the Dakotas, Oregon, Washington, etc.



**** CONTACTS ****

If interested in meeting along the way, either along Route 66 or on my return trip to Illinois, please contact me via cell phone or Email. I will have my laptop with me, but I do not know how often I'll be able to check Email, etc.
