Just thought I would let everyone know about a new Route 66 site called "The Motels of Route 66".  This site is actually a project which will eventually culminate into the release fo a book and a Video.  The Site owner describes the site in this way

"THE MOTELS OF ROUTE 66 SOCIAL INTERACTION

Another major component of the project will be compiling existing photographs and stories from people around the world. We will use social media networks, mobile phone apps and online ad campaigns to cull photographs and stories from those who have been inspired by Route 66. We will form partnerships with Route 66 associations to get the word out about the project and help gather pre-existing source material. We want to form a digital and physical archive of these places, of visuals and narratives already found, and those we have yet to unearth.

THE MOTELS OF ROUTE 66 CULMINATION

The project will culminate with the release of a coffee table book, publishing the best photographs of the accumulated images, as well as stories about a select number of the motels. We will also put together a short documentary film, giving further context to and expanded stories from these classic motels."

Bop on over to https://themotelsofroute66.ning.com/ and take a look.

Thanks Mike, this is great - I'll definitely be submitting some pics 🙂

Set up the Driving Route 66 website in 2010 following the best road trip experience in 2007.
