I am making my first trip "on purpose" down route 66 in my 66 Galaxie 500. I have a question for the forum. I am starting my trip in Oklahoma City going west to California, how many miles do you recommend we do a day.

Hi there - welcome to the forum Smile
I'd say that 150 - 200 miles a day makes for a comfortable trip. When are you going?

We are leaving May 6th going to take 2 weeks. We are only going to go as far as Barstow California then spend a few days in Las Vegas before returning back to Maggie Valley NC. I bought a book A Guide Book To Highway 66 by Jack Rittenhouse, first published in 1946. He has Oklahoma City to Amarillo and so on, I wasn't sure if these were broking into days or what.
