Hi there,
I'l finally realize my girl dream of travel the 66 on a convertible.
But the cheaper way I could do this was getting the car in LA and dropping off in Chicago.
My only concern about doing the opposite way is that all books and details maps the show you the detailed directions for drives going east to west.
Does any one ever done the route "the opposite way"? Where can I find detailed directions from west to east, as I don't want to miss a thing.

Cheers,
Jackie

Jackie / Deeg

This set of maps I found indispensable and vital for driving the route last year. They are written for driving from west to east as well:
