The Wife, and I will be leaving St. Louis on the 15th of September heading to Tucumcari to stay with Kevin, and Nancy at the Blue Swallow Motel. If you see us, give us a wave. I would love to stop, and talk with my fellow 66er's. We will be driving our silver convertible.

If only - I'd buy you a drink for contributing so much to the forum! Laugh

Drove Route 66 in August 2007 - hope to do it again one day in the not too distant future.

We are Dave. I traded the '07 red C6 in my avatar for it in March. It's time to break it in on a Route 66 adventure.

Hi everyone, me and a couple friends will be leaving Chicago on the 9th September, we plan to take the original most southern route all the way to Arizona and then take a slight detour to Las Vegas...from there head to San Francisco to take the "Grand Sur" down to L.A

Any recommendations welcome!

Happy Travels 🙂

Welcome to the forum Dan. If you have enough time I suggest 150 - 200 miles a day to make the Route 66 section of your trip enjoyable. That will give you time to enjoy the sites, meet people, and not be stressed. If you haven't already I suggest you get a copy of the guide "Route 66 Easy Guide" by Jerry McClanahan. It can be bought on Amazon at a reasonable price, and is considered by most that it is the best guide for the route. It may be to late to order one, but you can find one many places along Route 66. Enjoy your journey.

Also, to get more information I suggest you make a new thread with this question. More members will see it, you will get more suggestions, and help.

@Daniel Kitchen....funnily enough we land in Chicago on Wed 7th and collect our car on Fri 9th. Imagine you're behind me at the desk ha ha. Your trip sounds similar to ours....we're detouring at Kingman through Vegas and staying in Death Valley before heading to San Fran, then down highway 1 to Malibu then west hollywood.

Maybe we'll pass at some stage. Drop me a line if you're stuck anywhere...on twitter as: @Route66couple

Safe journey....Hylton & Yvonne.

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
