We've Found It….We're On It "Route 66"
Finding Route 66 is not as easy as it sounds and staying on it is a challenge too. The trouble is that it's not well sign posted and some sections are either Highway 40 or Interstate 40, there is no other road! We made it to Weatherford yesterday afternoon and booked into the Best Western Hotel, which is the best one we have stayed in so far. Just £55 gets you a great room, very nicely fitted out and a full American breakfast at the dinner next door. Great value. Last night whilst unpacking I discovered the shocking reality that we had a deserted not in our midst. 'Malcolm The Mouse' was AWOL! We must of parted with him back in Oklahoma City at the Cowboy museum.
Today we are off to Amarillo on Route 66. Our first stop will be in the town of Clinton to visit the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum which by all accounts in the best one on 'The Mother Road' take a look at their website http://route66.org
