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
We have been following your adventures since Gary introduced you and were looking forward to your arrival in Amarillo. Would love to buy you a meal or just follow along as you take in the sights---I'm sure you'll do Palo Duro Canyon and The Cadillac Ranch. Maybe you've even thought about taking on the challenge of a free 72 oz steak at the Big Texan. Of course you'll have to ride down 6th Street for a taste of Old Route 66. It's possible you can find a Harley jacket at Tripp's on west I-40. Give us a hint of where you're staying and we'll try to find you---we'll be the ones with the sidecar.ReplyDelete
Hi Cladd thanks for your comments and wishes. We are planning to be at "Guitars and Cadallics" tonight in Amarillo which is a recommendation from one of the staff at Tripps Harley. Would be wonderful to meet you.Delete

Cheers Mark - you might be interested to know we purchased a new bottle of rum a 'Captain Morgans - Black Spiced Rum' - like Kracken but with more punch, and just as smooth. I'll send a pic.Delete
