When I think of Route 66, I feel good. It sounds like Dr. Feelgood does too. Listen to his cover of the Route 66 Song.
Route 66 Trivia
How about some Route 66 trivia. We’ll throw some at you from time to time.
Today’s trivia is this…
Route 66 was commissioned 11/11/1926. (It just had it’s 90th Anniversary…. well, sort of… It’s now de-commissioned, but it was still 90 years ago that it became a highway.)
It took 9 years before it was paved end to end. That’s right, in 1926 only 800 miles of it were paved. We take pavement for granted these days. Back then you could drive a U.S. Highway and it could turn in to a dirt road. You had to plan your vacations carefully. Today’s paved Interstate system is a blessing.
