Getting our kicks on Route 66!

 
We've traveled another 660+ miles since my last post.  

If you have any reason to be in Clinton OK, their Route 66 Museum is fabulous. 

Since Memphis, we've made our way through AR, OK, TX and we're now in New Mexico. 
 A few of my favorite photos from stops along the way.

Big Texan Steak House in Amarillo TX


Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo TX


Cherokee Trading Post in Calumet OK

Indian Muffler Man in Calumet OK.

The buffaloes were also at this trading store.  Their prices were great. 
Cactus Inn McClean TX
Blue Swallow Motel, Tucumcari, NM

Mural also in Tucumcari NM.

Old Town in Albuquerque NM

It's been extremely hot (the van has been showing 105 on average).

A less expensive version of this headdress is now with us.  It was found at Clines Corners in NM.  We're now on our way to AZ to stay in the Wigwam Motel Thursday night. More heat and adventures await!

Kim, catching up on your road trip, it sounds amazing and brings back several memories! I studied in east Texas so drove from Canada to Texas several times, one regret is never stopping to take in Graceland - love your photos thus far. Must be hot! Safe travels, I hope Emma is getting good practice .

Getting your kicks on Route 66! Priceless!
*whew* Just as I was thinking to myself how hot it must be this time of year, you wrote how hot it was!
We just had a friend visit who lives in AZ. He said it was 108 when he left!

Loving the giant ox/cow photo! Super fun and quirky stops..that is what makes road trips so fun and entertaining!

(Crazy hot weather tho..I would be melting!)

Pam said...

That looks like the perfect family vacation. Hope you've found a Stuckey's along the way. You have to have one of their pecan logs for the trip.

You guys are the best roadtrippers ever! I can't even imagine being in a car that long! Please give me some tips since we are making our first longer roadtrip with the punks next month!

SO JEALOUS of your trip. Have loved following along even if I didn't have time to comment until now. Rt 66 fanatic here (I even wrote a romance series set on it that I'm relaunching soon!), have been along a LOT of it in bits and pieces but would love to do a stretch like you are! Love the pics and the updates!

Karin said...

Wow...what a COOL trip! I love anything from that time period, so I love all your pics! Hmmm...someday, I might have to drag my family on that trip. :)

Lynne said...

I'm catching up on the travels. I even sent a link to your blog to my hubby's computer so that he can come along! I hope there's room! Love the fun photos! I sure see some familiar sights! I love NM and lived near Gallup for a few years! It's so different, isn't it? HAVE FUN!
