Advertise on Route 66

Advertise on Route 66 for your business.  Even if your business is NOT on Route 66, our posts are going to reach the WORLD.  It doesn’t matter where your business is, we will spread your name all over the place.

Think about this… we are spending the next year gathering followers.  Many of those followers will follow us daily.  So, think about hearing this in our nightly video.  (Assume your business is XYZ Corp.)

“Today’s journey through Cadillac Ranch was made possible by our friends at XYZ Corp.  Make sure you visit their website at xyzcorp.com!”

Even if you’re a small mom and pop shop that serves local businesses, we’ll help drive business to your web site through links and special mentions.  You’ll find it is cheaper than many other forms of on-line advertising and you’ll benefit from our own Search Engine Optimization (which is gaining momentum with each post.)

Please consider sponsoring our tour.

Trip Readiness

Our trip readiness becomes more and more crucial each day.  This isn’t a trivial drive.  Paul and Brent will be on the road for about one month.  This means planning stops for doing laundry, making sure things are handled back home, and more.  The plan is crucial!

On days when we fall short on making our mile marker, we will be scrambling to make new hotel reservations and change existing reservations.  There will be days when we overshoot our goal too.  There might even be breakdowns or flat tires along the way.  In all cases, we must prepare.

Part of that preparation is making sure sponsors sign up early in the plans.  In return for signing up early, we will reward accordingly.    A $100 of sponsorship paid today will be rewarded more than a $100 sponsorship paid two months from now.  Thus, get on board early.

Going Live

We are going live today, September 24th, 2016.  Our tour is a little over one year away, and we have a lot of preparation to do.  We are including you, our readers, in our preparation and plans.

Our plan is to broadcast and post every day of the tour.  You’ll see every inch of this historic route.  For those not old enough to know the importance of Route 66, it was the highway that connected the east to California.  There were no freeways.  U.S. Highway 66 went from Chicago, headed southwest, through the southwestern states, and terminated in Santa Monica, California.

Listen to Manhattan Transfer as they describe the journey…

What’s Epic About Our Tour?

We’re going to photograph every mile we can find.  When I say, “that we can find”, I will explain…

Route 66 was decommissioned 1984.   May portions fell in to disrepair.  Some no longer exist.  In many respects, Route 66 became to highways what ghost towns are to cities.

An important part of American history, Route 66 is the Mother Road.  For a while, there was a TV series named Route 66.  Actor Martin Milner was one of the stars of the series (also known for his role in Adam-12).

Here’s a little trivia for you… We are starting our trip down Route 66 the day before Martin Milner’s birthday!  We’ll stop on 9/5/2017 and have a celebratory lunch on what would have been his 85th birthday!

Why Sponsors?

You might ask why we are looking for sponsors.   It’s simply this… we have our own businesses that will shut down during this period.  And, like any entertainment venue (and this will be entertaining), sponsors help bring the entertainment to the public.  Sponsors buy ads on TV shows so you can watch the TV shows at no cost.  If it weren’t for sponsors, there wouldn’t be free TV.

Conclusion

In conclusion, we’re driving this road (for however long it will take us), and we’re sharing what we find with the world.  Think of it as Guy Fieri teams with Charles Kuralt armed with cameras.  You’ll be able to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, this web site and more.
