    left Denver for RT66 NSRA Nats in Albuquerque Thursday August 26, 450+ miles, left Sunday morning on RT 66 e/b to Tucumcari, NM. Monday on to Lubbock, TX for Buddy Holly Museum. went to an air show in Lubbock & they let me pull my car out on the tarmac for pics. no questions or ID show, good thing I'm not Ahmed the terrorist. left Tuesday afternoon for Amarillo. then east on 66 thru Okla. air cond quit in Albuquerque & it was hotter than hell so I made it to Okla City & bailed out. really wanted to make it to Darryl Starbirds in Afton, OK but I guess that will be another trip. I went north coming back thru Kansas. 6 days of 95 degrees or hotter, worst day was western OK when it got to 101. thermometer inside my car at 1100am showed 100. 2,180 miles total, fun trip but drove thru some terrible storms & fog IMG_0755.JPG 20210826_151713.jpg 20210826_141820.jpg 20210826_185018.jpg 20210826_191128.jpg 20210827_110405.jpg 20210827_113014.jpg 20210827_153850.jpg IMG_0503.JPG IMG_0572.JPG 20210829_095005.jpg 20210829_120930.jpg 20210829_173943.jpg 20210830_093502.jpg 9-1-21.jpg 20210830_163050.jpg 20210831_121615.jpg 20210901_091555.jpg 20210901_090302.jpg 9-2-21a.jpg 20210902_083307.jpg 20210902_105020.jpg 20210902_112628.jpg 20210903_075314.jpg 20210903_112119.jpg 240848551_4418447558216082_7159397251630174521_n.jpg

    Great photos. I have driven the entire Route 66 but not in anything as nice as your sedan.

    Thanks for taking us along. It has been a few years since I done the 66 trip, need to do it again before I get too old to enjoy it!

    Memories of my couple of trips across R66. I see the picture of the Golden Light Cafe in Amarillo.
    We went there one night on our first trip in 1995 and had the best chilli ever. Not sure how I drove back to the motel that night but made it OK

    Excellent trip! I viewed your first post and wondered how you missed the Russel Museum, then saw pics in the second post! I never go by it with out stopping. Great place and they change some things up a little everytime I stop! You got close to Muskogee, maybe we could’ve fixed that A/C!
