Sorry I missed you at your gallery.
Just want to let you know, that Devil's Elbow bridge is open. I drove it two days ago.
Best regards, Fred from the Netherlands

Hi Jerry. I just wanted to say thanks for putting this book together. My wife and I have used it extensively and have just finished covering all off Route 66 in Kansas and Oklahoma plus parts in Missouri, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. There are so many fabulous places to see and I appreciate your efforts to help point out many sights that one could just pass by without noticing unless they had a decent guide book. Since I will be retiring soon and have an RV we have decided that one of our first trips will be to go to Chicago and follow Route 66 all the way to the west coast. Your book will be right on the front seat as we travel, for sure.

Wanted to drop a line to say that the bridge at Devils Elbow in Missouri is closed due to road work as of July 11 2018. Did not know if you knew or not. We will see if you are home when we travel east in a week or so. We are leaving 66 at Kingman and start heading north to Vegas.

The book was great. I helped us navigate the entire length of Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica. It was just the two of us on a 2014 Harley-Davidson Ultra. Couldn't have done it without the book! What a ride! And...we are still married!!!
It took us 11 days, plus 2 to return home. The weather was extremely hot, but it was all worth it. Route 66 is what makes America, America!!!
Thanks so much!
Mike and Jan Cuciti

My dad and I are taking the mother road in september. I bought a car for cheap and fixed it up enough to make the grueling trip, and we are going to scrap the car in California to fly home, really so we can spend more time on the road and fly home since we only have 14 days to do the trip :( I know we are going to have a trip of a lifetime though and one of the last i might get with my dad. We cant wait, and cant wait for the many stories we are going to tell

After moving from southern Oklahoma to Tulsa about a year ago, the wife and I finally got around to driving a stretch of The Mother Road. We stopped at the Blue Whale and was delightfully surprised it was reopened with a gift shop. That's where I picked up your wonderful guidebook. We wound up seeing some sites along the way to Sapulpa that we would have otherwise missed if it weren't for your book.
As we make many trips along I-40 going "Out West", we look forward to having some future Route 66 stops that we have not done. Kudos to you and hopefully one day we will have a chance to stop by your gallery!

We have just returned from our trip down Route 66. We live in Fort Wayne, Indiana and drove to Chicago to start our adventure. We took eleven days to drive all they way to Santa Monica. We were able to follow your directions as outlined in your book. I Don't think we would have been able to do it without it. Thank You so much for documenting this route so clearly. I wouldn't recommend trying it without Your book. We did drive by your store, but we thought it was to early to disturb you.
