Hi, My wife and I recently travelled through Route66 to commemorate our 66th. birthdays. I understand you are our age. During our trip I also found that I-44 was also about our age.
We left our home on 10/13, met my friends in Chicago on 10/14, left Chicago on 10/15, and crossed the finish line in Santa Monica on 10/28. From Flagstaff, Az, we had a small side trip to Grand Canyon. Although we missed the green corn fields, it was a perfect season.
We tried to travel the original Route 66, including Pre-1937 segment in NM, as much as we could, and your EZ66 Guide helped us a lot! Thank you!

Thank you so much for publishing your EZ66 Guide. We used it and the Route 66 navigation app for our 11-day adventure (St Louis to Needles). It was great for identifying points of interest along the way. We also enjoyed meeting you on 15 Sep.

We realized our dream of traveling on Route 66 from September 7 to 29, 2022 (3 weeks).
This trip was prepared thanks to your indispensable EZ66 guide.
Of course we bought the new 2023 edition.
We met you on September 14, 2022.
It was a wonderful, unforgettable trip.
We made 205 stops to see the points of interest: bridge, motels, signs, gas station, giants, etc. ....
A nostalgia for my teenage dreams.
We're continuing to follow Route 66 news and, as there's still so much to see, we're planning, God willing, to return in 2025.
Thank you for your time.

Hi Jerry. Thank you for spending time with me and my son on June 24th as we made our way back from Chicago to CA along Rte66. Thank you also for the handwritten updates and autograph in my 4th edition EZ66. We took your advice and made the detour to visit the Painted Desert Trading Post, and witness the excellent efforts of you and the team that refurbished such an amazing piece of Rte66 history. It will forever be remembered as an amazing trip and one made so much better by having your book and maps to provide detailed guidance to the many sites and sights that may otherwise have gone unnoticed. Best wishes and thank you.

I got back from doing Route 66 from Chicago to the Santa Monica Pier couple weeks ago. From Chicago, I left on Thursday morning and made it to the Pier the following Tuesday (Day 1 I made it to Springfield MO, Day 2 was Amarillo TX, Day 3 Flagstaff AZ, Day 4 San Bernardino CA, Day 5 was Los Angeles). I was working on a driving tour portion for a Master's thesis on Route 66 Green Book locations and tried to stick to as much of the Route as possible. When I arrived at the pier, I found out about your guide and wish I would've had that as my reference point and this website for updates. Especially when I went through the dirt portion between San Jon and Glenrio in a Wrangler and crossed the washed-out bridge (not my smartest move).
Even though I completed 66 on my first go, I plan on doing it again and I will be following your guide and website updates. I appreciate everything you do for travelers and I can safely say that the others appreciate what you do. Keep up the great work!

Just got back from our Route 66 trip from Chicago to Albuquerque and your book was invaluable for finding our route and curios along the way.
We drove to your gallery but unfortunately you were out on the day we were passing through, maybe next time!
Would recommend your book to anyone driving the road!

Just so you are aware, the Launching Pad in Wilmington, Illinois is still closed and the owner is parking her beater car in front of the Gemini Giant to prevent visitors from getting pictures. It's a sad case, and not sure how it will all work out. We know lots of people plan on stopping by for a picture, but they should be aware of the current situation.
Got your 5th Edition, by the way - great work!

My wife and I completed our Route 66 road trip from Los Angeles to Lebanon, Missouri in February, 2023. Your EZ66 guide was indispensable. We saw most of the landmarks - what great Americana! I just completed a painting of our trip from memories (with photo-assist) - 3 30 x 40 inch canvases - entitled "The World's Largest Ball of String. I be happy to share photos of it with you.
