We just did the first half Chicago to Mid Point Cafe (literally got back home to AL 1 1/2 hours ago). Your guide was invaluable. Stopped by to see you on the way past - hated to have missed you. You may already have been updated (100 times, or maybe not at all) but Mid Point Cafe is closed. We are going to do the second half in a year or two, so I’m hoping someone picks up the spatula and opens it back up. Again, couldn’t have made the trip if we didn’t have ‘you’ in the car with us all the way!! Worth every penny!!

Hi Jerry, over from uk and have just completed a journey from Seattle to St Louis, then picked up 66 and went to the end using EZ66 as my bible. Now back in Seattle recalling where I have been and how easy your guide made it all. Can I offer one suggestion, could there be say 4or5 blank pages in the back of the guide for recording personal notes as you go.

Finished our Route 66 trip back in May, 2017. We started in Santa Monica and headed east to Chicago. The EZ guide was great, indispensable, but I sure wish the book had been oriented west to east. Have you given any thought to publishing a companion guide for eastbounders?

Great guidebook - I have been studying it cover to cover, making plans for a route 66 run in Spring 2018.
I have a comment on page CA-18 regarding the Giant Orange Stands. The stand in Fontana is not the last of the Giant Oranges. There are several still open for business (most under other names), including Mark's Hot Dogs here in San Jose. Others are closed but not yet torn down, and still others have been "repurposed". For more details, go to "http://www.weirdca.com/location.php?location=134", or just Google "giant orange california".

Hi Jerry, Great to meet up with you at your gallery last month. We are now back home in Midhurst, West Sussex in the UK and would just like to say a sincere, big "Thank You" for all the help that "EZ-66" provided on our West-East Route 66 travels this time. Thanks also for the detour details to circumnavigate the Carthage area's bridges' reconstruction - great advice! Don't know how we would have successfully become Road Warriors twice now without your "Here It Is!" maps and aforementioned guide! Thanks seems somewhat inadequate. All good wishes, George & Carmel Martin

Used your book a couple of years back doing the west to east rt 66 path. My highlite was going through Commerce, OK. My wife was navigating and asked if i knew that this was Mickey Mantles hometown. Being a longtime Yankee fan, I knew it was. Barb then said that the address of his home was right there in your book. A quick detour became a photo op and one of many great moments. Thank you Jerry.

Hi, Jerry. Thanks for meeting with me and my wife, Julie, when we wen through Chandler. It was a pleasure to meet you and visit with you. We just wanted to let you know that the restored Richfield Gas Station in Rancho Cucamonga is open and we spent about an hour talking to Tony and Irene about Route 66 and nearby points of interest on 66. We finished out trip by walking out on the Santa Monica Pier and taking a picture or two of the 66 sign on the pier.

Thanks for chatting with me today Jerry! We shipped 8 motorcycles to

Hi Jerry. Just want to thank you for producing such an excellent book. I have heard it's very difficult not to slip off the R66 onto other roads especially the Interstates so this book is essential but is also easy to use.
I have used your book in conjunction with Google Maps to produce nearly 500 gps waypoints now loaded into my satnav (as my wife does not mapread!). Now looking forward to following the route.
Thank you again for all your hard work
