My husband, Richard, got me interested in Route 66 several years ago. Initially, I did not know what drew people to the Route, but that was soon to change— thanks to him.
Richard had always wanted to ride his motorcycle the entire Route, beginning to end. He bought Jerry McClanahan’s Route 66 EZ Guide and read through it, over and over. Finally, Richard and his best friend got on their motorcycles and took off. Their plan was to meet in Saint Louis, drive to Chicago, and then return to Saint Louis on Route 66.
