Hi. I'd like to get a detailed map of the route so I can pin point exactly what I want to see and where to go and miss the bits I don't 🙂 can anyone recommend one? I'd love a big old style on that you can spread over the table and draw on!! Do these still exist !!?

Phillippa--There are other options, but the EZ66 Guide (2nd Edtn) by Jerry McClanahan is a 200-page spiral-bound planning guide with detailed maps.  It's about $19. from Amazon.  You can draw and make notes on it.

The same author also offers a "Route 66 Map Series" of 8 maps available through https://www.66maps.com.  I've seen but haven't bought them.  If I recall correctly they are coated with plastic laminate.  The EZ66 Guide duplicates the effort and has a LOT more information for the money.  

Also check out what's on-line through the state 66 Associations and state governments.  You can find links through my website, referenced elsewhere.  The typical US Road Atlas will be of little value, most don't even show Route 66.
