Hi all

I am just sorting out my trip from United Kingdom over to the US ready to do the East to West Route 66.

I would be grateful for any advice about anything to do with the trip as I am planning on leaving UK on 18th July 2016.

Andy, Im planning to do East to west starting August 5th.
I plan to do 18 days and do about 200 miles a day. I am driving my restored 1960 Cadillac convertible for the trip.

The question I have is what clothes and things should I pack for an 18 day journey. I know that the weather will change dramitically from the north to the south. Any tips from people who have done the trip this time of year would be appreciated.

Ill follow this thread along with Andy.

Hi Andy
Welcome to the forum. Your lack of replies might be something to do with the fact that your question was fairly broad! Most of us who have travelled Route 66 would need 1000+ words to answer your post. Your best bet will be to search through previous posts which will certainly help, along with the "Plan Your Trip" tab at the top.
Any specific questions, do please post.

All the best

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.
