Living on route 66 in Bloomigton, IL. you have lots of chances to follow the old route and see some of the old remnants of the road and buildings. (I rode the entire old route from St. Louis to Chicago on my bicycle and was able to see lots of things some of the communities along the way have done to promote it).
This fall the Falling Leaf Rally in Mo. might be a good time to travel parts of route 66 in Mo. before or after the rally. Has anyone done much of route 66 in MO. and can you give me some advice as to what parts might be the most interesting? Since I am a retired layabout, I have time to do this stuff.
This picture was taken in Pontiac IL. at the route 66 museum. There is also a good war museum in the building. The town has a Pontiac car museum if you like GTOs and other Pontiac cars.
