We'll be working to highlight these people and some of the projects they're working on. Every place has a great story and we're looking forward to sharing them.
We hope you'll enjoy what we find along the way. We also plan to post further information, including ways you can become involved with the projects after we return from the trip.
If you know of any preservation projects along Route 66 that you'd like us to visit let us know.
We'll also be stopping at just about any tourist attraction we can find. Anything we see described as a "tourist trap" automatically becomes a "must see". For us the term "tourist trap" has always been a compliment! The three of the most important parts of a road trip are:
- Eat - drive in or diner
- Sleep - mom and pop motel
- See stuff - the more roadside signage, the better the attraction
So, here's to road trips, neon signs, fiberglass statues, roadside attractions, drive in restaurants, historic buildings, the people who work to save these things, and preservation in progress!
