colors

they come in colors? and one is YELLOW. :jump-r be still my heart. I've only seen the white in pictures. I'm going to start a trailer collection. :chin but you got the grey. well, I'll reserve judgment untill I see your pictures, but that sounds VERY nice. You aren't by any chance going through Oklahoma or Kansas on the way to LA? That sounds like a dream vacation. You are going too, aren't you, Jean? Normans 1 month is for get ready, right?

oh yes I'm going on the trip.Norm has one month off. Can that trip be done in 4 weeks? Norm has been getting ready for this trip for 2 years (i.e. he's been building the car for that long) and has 5 months work left.

We will be going through a small corner of Kansas and across the top of Okla. following the old route 66 as much as possible. How is camping along that way? We would probably want somewhat more security than dry-land would provide.
Photos will have to wait. We haven't figured out the scanner yet.

Arizona

The Mulloys are contemplating quite a trek:

<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3e058a66e5023rt66.jpg/>

That trip is about 7,000 miles (11,270 km) on the superslab, more on Route 66. I wouldn't attempt that in thirty days, but you're probably about 100 years younger than I. I wish you well and I'm sure you'll have a great time.

When you come through Arizona, you must see the Grand Canyon which isn't far off Route 66. Other sites you might want to see are the Painted Desert, the Petrified Forest, Sunset Crater and Walnut Canyon. All are along your route.

You can see temperatures well over 100F (38C) here in the southwest desert in June, earlier would be better. I don't suppose Norman is putting air conditioning in that deuce, what of the Oxygen? Through most of Arizona, you'll be above 5,000 ft (1,500m) which will help keep you cool at night.

I've found the following web site to be helpful in trip planning. The AZ (Arizona) section is very helpful.

http://camping.miningco.com/blaast.htm

Come on you others along Route 66, let the Mulloys hear about your state. That's IL, MO, KS, OK, TX, NM, AZ and CA.

I would also suggest a good travel guide, such as the "Route 66 Traveler's guide", by Tom Snyder. Gives you detailed maps of the remaining alignments. Also the quarterly Route 66 magazine is a great source of information. We found so much in both that we would not have "stumbled on" if left to ourselves while taking our "Mother Road" trip in our '65 Corvair last year! Be sure to stop in Williams, AZ at the "home" of Route 66 magazine. They also have the best gift shop in that genre. Next year, we'll either take the '65 or one of our '66s (with our trailer attached) up the Blue Ridge Parkway as we head to the Corvair Nationals in Carlisle, PA.
:wave :wave
(Oh, be SURE to stop in Adrian, TX @ the Mid-Point Cafe. Say Hi to Fran and the girls, and be sure to have a slice of "Ugly Crust Pie"...MMMMMM:banana

route 66

You'd think I could read better then that. :r you say your going Route 66. I must have thought you were going to skip over OK. it's within 40 miles from here. :wak guess I've been on it so much, I don't think about it.

What to see in Oklahoma? :chin good question. what do you like to see? museums, or lakes, or Indian gatherings? I could probably find you a Pow wow to go to if I knew about when. Starting in the spring there are at least one a week-end starting on Friday, and some times three. There are some pretty good antique shops in may different towns in the area. that route 66 book would be a good idea, or just go on line. I looked up Oklahoma :E and found more things that I had forgotten about but too many directions to pick from. of course mine is the Indian comunities. :)

Morgan's map

Thank you for the map.Can that be modified to go south from Winnipeg to Minn. and Wis an U.P. Mich to Sarnia? That will cut off a few miles. In ' 67 My folks went on a Coast-to Coast Centennial Antique car tour from Ont to the Pacific at Victoria and back to Expo '67 in Montreal. Dad drove a '29 Chrysler sedan pulling a 13 foot travel trailer. The only radiator boiler-over was in Northern Ont. The grades there then were steeper than in the rockies. The '32 is a high tech rod so it will have air. What it won't have is WINDOWS!The trailer has a polaraire fan/vent.

I can't take credit for the map. It's a Map Blast map

You can set the starting point and any number of waypoints. Post the new map when you get it drawn.

I didn't know where in Ontario you were located, so I just used Toronto because it's the center of the earth. Oh, I just got it. On the return, you're going to drop down at Winnipeg and get some cheap gas. :o But wait, you'll miss northern Ontario. :o

You might change your profile to show us where you live in Ontario; it's a big province. :E :E

JJ,

The reason they built Rt 66 was so the Okies could move to California during the dust bowl. :E :E

Get your kicks

Get your kicks ... on Route 6 6

St Louis, Mo ... you have to stop and tour the Arch ... which is the gateway to the west.

Through Illinois, portions of the old road still exist ... you'll run past Abe Lincoln's boyhood home ... where Honest Abe once walked miles to return a few cents to a shopper who overpaid.

You also go close to Chicago ... which is a nightmare under the best of conditions in my opinion ... but many folks love the jazz and the night life.

>>can it be done in four weeks

Jean ... 7000 miles (11,270 km) in 24 days ... yes, it can be done ... but you are going to be spending more time in the tow vehicle than touring the sites.

You'll have to average 291 miles (470 km) a day.

charles 291 miles a day

Not a chance. It once took us 2 days to get to Kalamazoo (300 miles). O.K.- so we left after work - and it was 103 F at Sarnia at 6p.m. with two little ones in an un-a/c'd van pulling a 17' Triple E. We needed to stop frequently and end early. As old folks we still stop frequently but start late - that's what you have a vacation for. We also need 2-3 days at the L.A. Roadster Father's Day Show. So I wonder what plan B should be?
