Almost finished thrashing on the car - Hitting the road on Monday, need to make about 300 miles per day. The challenge is to see new roads, or at least re-drive scenic roads. Last year, I was well into Texas before I drove on a new road. RT-666 (a.k.a. The Devil's Highway) runs from the south east corner of Arizona, goes north through Moab, Utah and further north. Normally north-south roads get odd route numbers. The AZ road got renamed US-191 sometime in the 1980's. I have heard several speculations, including objections to The Number of the Beast and the frequent theft of Rt-666 signs. The stretch between I-10 and I-40 has some wonderful twisty roads, great for sports cars and motorcycles. The Volvo is light and corners well, with a few hot rod touches under the hood. This will probably be my last chance to re-drive this road. I did find a couple of new roads (into New Mexico) on the northerly leg to I-40. I intend to drive some of RT-66 (it parallels I-40 in many places). Again, I've driven parts of RT-66 before, trying for some new sights. A must stop is the Lewis Antique Auto & Toy Museum in Moriarty, NM. Last trip, I had a discussion with him about custom headlight bezels and I want to show him what I did.
