Hello from the corn desert of east central Illinois.
I picked up your EZ66 Guide last September in Staunton, IL at Henry’s Rabbit Ranch (I was even in my VW GTI lol) on my way home from a STL Cardinals game while I was meandering the old route before heading east on RT16 from Litchfield, IL. It came highly recommended from Rich Henry who even signed it right then. I have read it about 5 times since then as I am using it in conjunction with my gps mapping programs and other Route 66 books and journals to plan out my cross country motorcycle trip me and a couple other “Flatlanders RC” members will be embarking on in late August 2019. The plan is to meet in Chicago and ride 300-400 miles per day stopping to take in everything we can and visit with locals and then camp or couch surf our way across country. Once in California, we will ride around the Mohave visiting Joshua Tree, San Bernardino Natl. Forest, Salton Sea, Sky valley areas as well as a nice 300 or so miles up the PCH before doing back to back IronButt qualifying rides back home (2500 miles in 48 hours of ride time) Your guide is one of the main tools being utilized for our trek. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and countless hours of research so this nerd biker can plan his most epic journey to date!!

My husband and I will be driving route 66 in Sept (and maybe October too) of 2020. Yes I know that's a long time from now but I do love reading and planning our trips. I spent 5 years planning our Alaska trip in our motorhome. Anyway I have just received your EZ 66 Guide. I can't wait to read and study it. And I look forward to having you sign it next year. See you later.

we found your EZ66 Guide rather by coincidence and it made a real difference when we travelled route 66 last month! Thanks so much for your input to our travel plans.

Just finished the tour. Started in Cuba, MO and went to LA. Great trip! Beautiful scenery and friendly people from beginning to end. Met a lot of 66ers along the way. The Guide is invaluable. A great resource that worked well. Really helped to have a navigator to help out. Not sure how the motorcyclists can do this. Great fun! Thanks!
