My wife and I just returned from a road trip out west. Our destination was Mesa, AZ to attend our niece's wedding, and then visit a handful of national parks in southern Utah. As we were traveling along Interstate I-40, we took a number of detours to drive along historic Rt.66 in Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. We were aided by Jerry McClanahan's book EZ66 Route 66 Guide for Travelers. Here are a few pictures for your enjoyment:

Rt 66 is two of the best road trips my wife and I have taken. The first time we went wearward fron Chicago to the Santa Monica Pier. The second time we did it in reverse feom west to east. We traveled on every section of RT 66 that still exists.

In reply to # 1410535 by AtRo Racing We traveled on every section of RT 66 that still exists.

One of these days I'll try to do that too. I understand 85% of Rt.66 still exists. Some sections are in better condition than others. I imagine that it would take a significant investment of time and money to travel from one end to the other and stop at points of interest along the way. Congratulations on your accomplishment.

This too, is on my bucket list!

Congratulations to both of you, it’s great to see someone turn a dream into reality.
