I’ve Been Everywhere
One of Johnny Cash’s best songs was I’ve Been Everywhere. In the song Cash rolls of a list of locations he’s traveled. It is the ultimate road trip song.
Of course, the song isn’t specifically about Route 66, but Route 66 is the ultimate road trip. Route 66 is the Mother Road! The song does mention Route 66 locations. In fact, we should see how many Route 66 locations people can list. Comment on our Facebook page the Route 66 cities mentioned in the song.
You can bet that Paul and Brent will be listening to this while they drive.
Nine months isn’t a reference to pregnancy… it’s how many months before our 2017 Route 66 Tour. We have the same amount of time to prepare as it takes a human baby to gestate. (Okay, that was a reference to pregnancy, but nobody is pregnant here.)
We need sponsors. This is a huge undertaking and we want other businesses to benefit from our broadcasts and posts. It’s a win-win situation for both of us.
Studying for the Trip
We’ve been studying hard for this trip. Brent has been reading about decommissioned sections of Route 66. Some require doing a little searching. Driving ALL of Route 66 is not as easy as taking I-40 across the country. (Note: I-40 parallels Route 66 in many places.)
Because of this studying, we plan to make this the most comprehensive, live, virtual tour of Route 66 ever. You can tune in daily as we take the trip and see what we saw and did along the way.
