Hi, this year I have the chance to get a three months sabbatical from job. In this time I will spend four weeks in May on Route 66. After my return to Germany I have to write an article about my experiences and encounters. What is the best way to get into contact with interesting people living on the old highway or travelling like me?

I'd get in contact with someone like Jim Hinckley who is a Route 66 expert - he's bound to have loads of contacts for you:

I suggest Kevin, and Nancy Mueller. This husband, and wife team brought the Blue Swallow Motel in Tucumcari, NM back to life almost by themselves. The old motel looks great, and is booked nearly every week. My wife, and I have been staying with them for the last four years during our Route 66 journeys, and are proud to consider them friends.

I have found that many of the good people that live along Route 66 are fine people, and willing to talk about the route freely. Good luck on your endeavor.

just found this:
Just one block south of Roger Miller Boulevard in Erick’s oldest building, the old City Meat Market, can be found the one and only Sand Hill Curiosity Shop run by Harley and Annabelle - the Mediocre Musicians. The weary road wanderer is in for a treat when they drop by the old meat market just a block south of Route 66 in Erick. For it is here that you will meet some of the nicest folks to be found on Route 66. Harley and Annabelle Russell will put on a show for you and never ask for a dime. They just plain enjoy what they do and singing is what they do best! In my opinion there is nothing mediocre about those two.

Must look them up!!!!

thanks for the lead
