I dig this guy’s guitar playing. Daniel Talevi has a great style and makes the Route 66 Song swing. Ivy Markaity adds her vocals… great job you two!
I wonder if any of these contemporary artists would like to meet us on Route 66. I could mic them with my Tascam digital recorder, put my camera in video mode, and add that to our vlog.
If any of you artists are listening, you have an open invitation to meet us along Route 66. We’ll provide the photos and video and you provide the music.
Here is more trivia for you…
Of the original Route 66 pavement, Oklahoma contains the most. I find this surprising because I would think Arizona or New Mexico would hold that record, but I trust the folks at Legends of America have their facts correct.
What Driving Route 66 is Like
Driving Route 66 is like driving a road with lots of detours. Many of those detours are not marked. You need a guidebook and maps.
Route 66 is like this because it is de-commissioned. If you have ever hiked less-traveled trails in the woods, it is analogous to driving Route 66. You need to navigate your way along.
Popular spots are marked, don’t get me wrong. As a tourist you can see signs on I-40 saying, “Historic Route 66 Next Exit.” However, some are not so clearly marked.
