Hello,
My name is Dennis and I live in northeast Oklahoma. I have been exploring the Oklahoma portion of Route 66 so if you have any questions about that part of the Mother Road, I will try to answer them. When I was in high school in 1965 my family moved to Arizona and then to Grants, New Mexico. We travelled Route 66 when it was still 66 and I-40 was still being worked on.

My wife and I will be driving to California this June to see our son and daugher-in-law in the Bay Area. We are going to follow most of Route 66 beginning in Clinton, Oklahoma to the Santa Monica Pier. Last year the covered the Oklahoma portion from the Kansas state line to Clinton.

Hi Dennis, We are in NE Oklahoma also outside of Tulsa. We will be taking the motorhome from here to Southern California later this year. Do you have a book that you like that you will be following on your journey. I am looking forward to our trip as I know you are also. I understand there is a good book called EZ 66 Guide that I am going to pick up.

Patti,
I have ordered EZ 66 Guide, but have not received it yet. The writer has a website that people send updates to. He also adds information that he has found since his last edition. He has some information about clearance heights for RV's and high trucks you may want to read. The website is at https://www.mcjerry66.com/ez66.php.
Oklahoma Department of Tourism prints a free informative booklet about sites on Oklahoma's portion of Route 66 including some of the old alignment. We used it our travels from the Kansas stateline to Clinton. I will be using that for our Oklahoma Clinton to Texas portion on this trip. I plan on stopping at each state's Welcome Center to see if they have similar free booklets about their portion of Route 66.

Happy travels.

The EZ Guide Route 66 by Jerry McClanahan is one of the best guides of the Mother Road. I don't drive the route without it. As I understand there is a 4th edition now, but if not the 2nd or 3rd will do the trick.
