Oklahoma, Route 66 Museum
The route 66 museum is absolutely fabulous. It not only features cool exhibits, stories, and memorabilia, but it also had newspaper prints throughout the museum with headlines and stories of what was going on around the world in the era of route 66.
I did not know this, but I 40 was the brain child of Pres. Dwight D Eisenhower. Pres. Eisenhower was so fascinated with how well the autobahns in Germany were constructed and held vast amounts of traffic, that he could foresee that route 66 would not fulfill the growth of the US with its burgeoning traffic from east to west and west to east traffic.
Chocolate shake with a burger and fries please.
This was a beautiful jukebox
Gary and I absolutely love this Volkswagen bus!
Gary looks like he belongs behind the wheel with his tie-dye T-shirt
This was how we traveled back in the day - luggage on top and kids hanging out of the back window.
Time to check in a roadside Motel
