Route 66 RV Adventure - Preview

Our thanks to John Holod for providing this lovely 30-minute video of his Route 66 RV Adventure. It's sure to whet your appetite to purchase the full-length, 90-minute DVD from What a great tribute to and travelogue of Route 66! He really gets it.

John writes: "Route 66 is also know as "the mother road." It's history has helped shape that of America. Commissioned in 1926, it was the first highway to link Chicago and Los Angeles. Route 66 became America's main street. No longer necessary for cross-country
travel, it has been replaced by interstates with no stoplights and no special places of interest, just a way to get from point A to point B in a hurry."

He continues, "But as I've always reminded travelers, you don't learn anything on an interstate. Route 66 is special, it crosses the rivers, plains, mountains and deserts of eight states. Come along for the over 2,000 mile ride as we explore it's drive-ins, gas stations, museums, kitschy roadside attractions and most importantly, it's people. Americana at it's finest! Today, visitors come from all over the globe to travel what some call the most magical road in the world. What are you waiting for!"
