    I am reliving all my memories of our Route 66 trip(all the way Chicago to LA) in 2009.We also stayed in Williams and at that time they had the Disney movie train in town.Had a great night on the beer & wine and the guitarist/singer was named Dustin Horsehair!!!!!

    Also stayed at the El Rancho in the Marx Brothers room.

    Spent a night at the Blue Swallow back in 1995 or so. Parked in the garage and everything! Love the pics, thanks for taking the time to post them all.

    You should have sat and visited with us. There were quite a few longhaul cars right there.

    I'd really like to know what's up with that padded roof on the 58 chevy from the Shredders.
    They always have really bad ass rides, but that sticks out like a sore thumb!

    This is the shot I've been looking for, after 4,248 miles it's good to be back home. We had a blessed time and are very thankful for all the prayers and support along the way.

    God bless everyone who followed us on our trip.

    George and Tammy

    Thanks for the good words guys, it was a pleasure to share our trip with you guys...if not for the influence of the H.A.M.B. we probably would have never taken this trip.
