34 Days

34 Days

34 days and I breakout the road trip music.  Various covers of Route 66 will be in the mix, as well as other great travel songs.

Here’s one of my favorites…

Who doesn’t like Steppenwolf?

What are your favorite road trip songs?

Post them to our Facebook page.

Here are a few more of mine…

  • Anything by the Eagles (especially Take it Easy)
  • Earth, Wind and Fire’s September (we’re leaving in September!)
  • Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Travelin’ Band
  • Johnny Cash’s I’ve Been Everywhere
  • T. Rex’ Get It On
  • Beach Boys Little Duce Coupe (and most anything else by the Beach Boys)
  • and more…

Let’s hear about some of yours.  Our facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/groups/2017route66tour/

Next Few Weeks

Next few weeks I will be devoting time to getting ready.  On a long trip like this we plan to make stops at stores for provisions, however, there are simply things you can’t forget.

An example of something you can stop and purchase would be shaving cream.  However, if you forget a prescription you might not be able to stop and get it quickly.  Planning is of the essence.

My biggest fear is I’ll have everything I need to take pictures and I’ll forget clean socks.

Remembering Glenn Frey

Remembering Glenn Frey

What does remembering Glenn Frey have to do with Route 66?

Many may not realize it, but Route 66 goes through Winslow, Arizona.  For those not old enough to know, Glenn Frey was in a band called the Eagles.  They sung a song named Take It Easy that is about a young man standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona.  Yup, on Route 66.

In my generation, every young man dreamed of standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona, waiting for that cute girl to drive by.  I think any young man back then who claims he didn’t have that fantasy is lying.  The song was epic and on everyone’s lips.

Glenn died this earlier this year.  A few years earlier he recorded the Route 66 Theme Song.

Winslow, Arizona

When we get to Winslow, Arizona, we will be photographing that very corner.  Perhaps we’ll find a girl in a flatbed Ford to photograph. (We’ll take volunteers if you want to meet us there.)

Sponsoring

Sponsoring us can be specific as saying, “I want to sponsor your Winslow, Arizona, portion of the trip.”   We can talk about what that means and what it will require.  The nice thing about these sponsorships is we’re flexible.
