ROUTE 66 TRANSITIONS EXHIBIT on
Aug 10, 2022 at 7:25:48 pm
My photo exhibit is up in the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum in Clinton. It features 66 photos of mine from 1981 to 1991, many never seen before, of subjects long gone. Give it a look! Should be up for a couple of years.

McJerry's Route 66 Gallery has no set hours. I am happy to open whenever I have visitors (even on weekends or off-hours when possible).
I've had all my jabs and booster. But I DID recently get covid from a visitor. Do not visit if you have ANY cold, flu or allergy symptoms, PLEASE! I probably have some immunity for a couple months, but that is not certain, so I MAY wear a mask.
Please call or text me ahead of time at 4oh5 24oh 7659 (ESPECIALLY in the off-season) I live and work VERY close by, so it is no problem for me to meet you very quickly...most of the time. I DO take off for lunch,and sometimes I am running errands or out enjoying 66!
PS: be sure to check the EZ 66 Guide updates at www.mcjerry66.com and also the FB page "EZ 66 Guide" for timely notices.

PLEASE PARK ON THE GALLERY SIDE OF THE STREET (EAST SIDE).
My property along the east-side curb runs from the Mini-warehouse on my north, almost to 4th street up the hill to the south, so you will not be blocking any driveways. RVs may carefully park here along my curb.
Or cars may use my north driveway entrance and park on the grass...
or the south entrance by my mailbox...just go SLOW to avoid scraping.
DO NOT PARK across the street at 301 Manvel (corner at 3rd and Manvel) due to a barking dog which occasionally is loose. Hasn't hurt anyone, just scary. Also some barking dogs uop the street. Loud but leashed.
Again, its best to park on MY side of the street, or on my GRASS driveway (you can use the entrance to the gravel drive by my 57 Chevy but GO SLOW as you enter).

SHIPPING TO OTHER COUNTRIES on
Dec 13, 2019 at 11:05:25 am
Due to Census and customs regulations, I currently can't ship any artwork valued over $2,500 to another country.
The Cov-vid situation has also made overseas shipping difficult.
In fact, until shipping conditions improve, I am hesitant to mail ANYTHING overseas.
Also, it is too expensive to send one or two prints or books overseas. I've gone to the trouble of getting shipping quotes, only to have the persons back out (understandably) after seeing how expensive safe, protected shipping is.
EDIT: I will need to have payment in full from now before I ship anything. I ran into a problem recently...
NEW BOOK! on

END OF 66 (the western end, that is) on
Jul 09, 2018 at 2:50:23 pm
A former "googie" styled diner at the official western terminus (from 1936)of Route 66 in Santa Monica is now reopened under the famous "Mels Diner" name!
This is at the corner of Lincoln and Olympic, which for years did not even have an "END 66" sign.
So now there is something new to enjoy at the formerly unremarkeable official end, before you continue on to end your journey at the Santa Monica Pier, to see the Pacific Ocean and our friends at "66 to Cali" on the pier.
CA DETOUR on
May 13, 2018 at 8:24:09 pm
Just bumping this long detour back to the top.
West of Needles, you must take I-40 between Fenner EXIT 107(Goffs Rd)and Kelbaker Rd Exit 78. Use Kelbaker Rd to connect between I-40 and Route 66/National Trails Hwy to Amboy.
See maps CA page 2 and CA page 6.
PAINTED DESERT TRADING POST on
Apr 08, 2018 at 2:25:47 pm
Here is a link to a press release from one of the 10 members of a group which has banded together to preserve the iconic and currently inacessible Painted Desert Trading Post in eastern AZ. This has long been gated off and is in danger of collapse, so it has not been listed in the EZ 66. But the CO-OP does plan to EVENTUALLY find a way to allow at least limited access.
UPDATE: WORK IS COMPLETED. CHECK THEIR FB PAGE Route 66 Painted Desert Trading Post FOR INFO ON HOW TO VISIT.
