Route 66 has a preservation following. It isn’t often you have people who donate time and money to keep a road maintained, but this is the case with Route 66. It’s worth it, in my opinion.

Route 66 is like a huge, 2000 mile museum of Americana. It should be part of the Smithsonian Institute in my opinion. Never has there been a section of road in the U.S.A. that says so much about 20th century life. From space aliens to cowboys, Route 66 is the place.
Help Us Help Route 66
I wish our request for sponsors had such an overwhelming response it would not only pay our expenses, but it would also allow us to provide funds to preserve Route 66. So, here’s my promise. If we end up with leftover cash from cash sponsorships we will make sure it all gets spent on helping preserve Route 66.
In terms of goodwill, we are helping build awareness of this great resource. Our blog and vlog will allow others to see what a great resource Route 66 is. People who decide, based off our reports, to drive it for themselves will help the Route 66 economy and thus help preserve it.

I like these guys. I have no idea where they are from, but their lead singer does a great job with the scatting.
