2017, Route 66 Journey

09.17.17 Our first look at Route 66 in Williams, Arizona

Sunday, September 17, 2017 – Route 66 starts in California and goes all the way to Illinois.  We are driving the portion from Williams, Arizona to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  Williams, Arizona is known as the last town to be bypassed by Interstate 40.  They held out until 1984 so here in Williams, Arizona there is now both an I-40 and a Route 66

The first Route 66 sign that we’ve seen!

v After seeing all of Route 66 that Williams had to offer we came back to our RV and rested till dinner.  We ate at the RV Resort’s Grand Depot Cafe where we enjoyed a very nice buffet for my birthday.  My sister called to wish me Happy Birthday.  Both our sons and their family called and sang Happy Birthday to their Grannie.  Lots and lots of birthday wishes on Facebook too.  Even if turning 63 is something I’m not thrilled about, all the love I felt helped make up for the sting of 63. 

Here’s Boots and Dora enjoying the nice cool weather here!

Saturday we are leaving here headed down Route 66 to see and experience what we can.  That drive will include seeing the Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert. We will then stay at a Walmart in Gallup, New Mexico  After that there will be no reservations, we will be stopping on Route 66 each day when we’re tired.

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!!
