In October 2018 we were returning from a trip and spent the night in Pontiac, Illinois. while in Pontiac, we visited the Route 66 Museum, and I was hooked. On the way home (50 miles southwest of Washington, Missouri) we decided to take 66 from Pontiac to St. Louis. We stopped at Ryburn Place in Normal, Illinois and I bought the EZ Guide and have been using it ever since. Gradually we started traveling Route 66. On March 14 we're finally wrapping up the Mother Road with a trip from Williams, Arizona to Santa Monica, California. Your book helped get me the entire way. It's spiral binding has come out a few times, and many of the pages have been torn out and stapled back in. That's a sign that the book has been used a lot. Thank you!

Hello Jerry! My buddy Mike and I are planning to do Route 66 E to W in September. I have the 4th edition of your guide, didn't know about the 5th (sigh). I'm marking up changes in my book that I am finding while populating waypoints. We will be taking the tour via motorcycle, ending up in California and shipping our bikes back. I'm in MN and Mike is in NC. We'll be meeting up in Chicago. Already looking forward to this bucket-list trip, hope we get to see you when we come through town! Thanks for continuing the journey!

I have the 4th Edition and we're planning a trip mid June 2023 and now there's an update. I wish I'd waited for the 5th Edition...! But we can't wait to get started.

Hi Jerry, just finished reading EZ66 (4th Edition). Such a wealth of information, whilst planning our drive along route 66 in June and July later this year as we're travelling from the UK. Hopefully we will get the opportunity to meet you in person and maybe get you to sign the guide for us lol! Thanks for all the information that you have provided

Jerry, we had the great pleasure of meeting you at the Dairy King in Commerce back in April, 2016 where you signed our copy of The EZ66 Guide. We will be in your area on the 3rd and 4th of October this year and hope to see you again and visit your shop.

THANK YOU! My 16 year old son and I drove Chicago to Santa Monica on Route 66 this summer. We used every page of your guide, every map, and every word to get us on the oldest pieces so we could stick to the original route as much as possible. I've done road trips every year for the past 27 years with my kids (my husband supports my crazy but doesn't participate), and when my son realized this was a doable trip, his dream was to actually drive it. It was intense, we only had 3 weeks, and there are sections I've been on over the years, but I fell in love with the road this summer, and will definitely revisit different parts in the future. We owe it all to you that we were able to do this. Thank you so very much for your passion for the history of this beautiful piece of America!

Thank you for all your worth into the EZ Guide. We just passed your gallery and saw you're still out sick. All the best wishes in your return to good health. I'm still young, but I've been wanting to go on this trip ever since I was two years old(you can guess what pop culture inspired me). But I also love history dearly, this trip has been a joy so far and the book has been a great help, so thank you again.

Well…….we made it! Chicago to Santa Monica! What a wonderful journey. Thank you Jerry for the great travel guide along Route 66. We used it the entire time. The book has lots of notes, dates and lots of cool things to see circled. Definitely kept us on track and gave us the ability to see things that you would totally miss if you traveled Hwy. 40. For all of you Route 66 travelers….enjoy the journey!
